1 Miami Beach Convention
offers more than 1
million square feet
of flexible space
and spans four city blocks in the
heart of South Beach. The MBCC
also features a skywalk as well as
a boardroom, box offices,
concierge desks, concessions,
and show offices. This past year,
the MBCC hosted AARP’s
Life@ 50+ National Event & Expo,
as well as the style show Maison
& Objet Americas.
Come nightfall, downtown
Miami heats up. In recent years,
gastropubs and chic lounges
have opened in droves on Third
Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard,
while 32-acre Bayfront Park is
perfect for an after-dinner stroll
or a free yoga or Zumba class.
The park also features two major
event spaces — the Klipsch Amphitheater, which can seat 10,000
guests, and the Tina Hills Pavilion,
which can accommodate up to
1,000. The neighborhood is also
home to a variety of hotels.
Miami is known for its Art Deco architecture, stun- ning beaches, and glittering nightlife. But the city is also home to both Biscayne National Park
and the vast Everglades National Park, unique new venues
such as the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science
and Brickell City Centre, and a sizzling dining scene that
runs the gamut from glamorous options to food trucks that
serve up arepas, cupcakes, and everything in between. After
hitting the beach, attendees can visit one of Miami’s world-class museums, paddle through mangrove forests, or tour
the city’s colorful neighborhoods.
With more than 3,000 hotel rooms within a mile of the
Miami Beach Convention Center — and more than 45,000
in the area — the city is ideal for meetings large and small.
Recently, Miami hosted the AMC Institute’s 2015 Annual
Meeting for association-management companies. “I would
book it again tomorrow if the right opportunity presents
itself,” said Tina Wehmeir, CAE, CMP, the AMC Institute’s
CEO. “The problem with letting your attendees experience
something that’s fantastic is that they always ask for more.” .
