The Miami Beach Convention Center is undergoing a $620 million renovation and expansion, which will set a high standard of excellence and redefine meeting and entertainment solutions when hosting large-scale business, trade, civic and cultural events. Miami Beach’s professional design team consisting of nationally recognized Fentress Architects, the local design firm of Arquitectonica, and international landscape architects West 8, have designed a project that will position itself among the top globally significant convention centers in the world. Built in 1957, the center has expanded throughout the years from its original 108,000 square feet to its current size of 1.4 million square feet.
The new LEED certified facility will include nearly 500,000 sqare feet of renovated exhibit space, a state-of-the-art, 60,000 square foot grand ballroom, additional meeting rooms with flexible arrangements, a 20,000 square foot glass rooftop junior ballroom, advanced technology, and new versatile indoor/outdoor public spaces. The reimagined Miami Beach Convention Center is unveiling in 2018 but open for business now.
