While the Greater Miami and the Beaches area encourages planners to continue to book after Hurricane Irma, the destination is also offering a number of corporate social responsibility (CSR) opportunities for meetings and groups. 

A sampling of CSR opportunities for meetings and groups in the area includes:

In a recent interview with International Meetings Review, officials from the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) reported that all of the destination’s meeting hotels are operational and open for business following the hurricane. In fact, several area hotels, such as the Loews Miami Beach Hotel and Fontainebleau Miami Beach, were already hosting events the week after the storm. The storm also did not delay the planned September 2018 debut of the destination’s expansion and renovation of the Miami Beach Convention Center. Through the end of October, the destination is hosting a #MiamiNow campaign with a number of deals aimed at leisure travelers that attendees of area events can also take advantage of. 

For assistance with these CSR opportunities for meetings and groups, meeting planners can call 1-800-933-8448 in the U.S. and Canada, 305-539-3071, or visit www.MiamiMeetings.com.
