Redesigned Miami Beach Convention Center Hosts One of Its First Events




The newly redesigned Miami Beach Convention Center recently hosted one of its first large-scale events since the refresh: LE Miami

LE Miami, an annual marketplace that connects contemporary travel brands with buyers and luxury media, took over two halls of the Miami Beach Convention Center, turning the spaces into a glow-in-the dark exhibit floor, complete with a DJ booth, pop-up meditation station and business "suites" where official meetings took place between leading luxury travel suppliers and buyers.

The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau welcomed LE Miami to the Miami Beach Convention Center over June 12-14, 2018.

The newly reimagined Miami Beach Convention Center is undergoing the final phase of a $620-million dollar renovation and expansion, which will include a new 60,000-square-foot grand ballroom, 500,000 square feet of exhibit space, 84 breakout rooms, and a new six-acre public park to serve as incremental event space. The destination has also invested approximately $7 million in public art throughout the convention center campus, which officials say is one of the largest public art commissions in the nation. The reimagined Miami Beach Convention Center is set to welcome the first official citywide convention in September 2018 when it will be home to the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) annual convention. 

The Miami Beach Convention Center is the anchor to Greater Miami's meetings and conventions industry, which generates an economic impact of nearly $2 billion to the destination.
