The Magic City is sure to charm attendees at your association’s next event.

Florida’s second-largest city features a convention center with a prime location, a variety of venues, and hotels that suit every attendee’s wallet.

Perfectly located convention center. Situated one minute away from Miami Beach and adjacent to the historic Art Deco District , the Miami Beach Convention Center—currently under renovation—offers 500,000 square feet of exhibit space, a 132,000-square-foot ballroom, and 68 meeting rooms. It also features a skywalk above the exhibit floor and is adjacent to the 2,704-seat Gleason Theater, perfect for awards ceremonies or other special presentations.

Specialized event venues. Miami offers spaces of all sizes and styles. Among them are the 16,500-square-foot Miami Auto Museum at the Dezer Collection, which features 1,200 vehicles and holds 1,300 attendees, and the Pérez Art Museum Miami, offering 200,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor space and views of Biscayne Bay.

Hotels for every budget. From intimate and historic boutique hotels to convention properties and luxury resorts, Miami has accommodations to satisfy every taste and budget. More than 50,000 hotel rooms are currently available, with another 8,500 rooms opening by 2019, including a new convention center headquarters hotel. Up to 10,000 rooms are also available for group blocks. —Samantha Whitehorne
