Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

At the Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC), we are dedicated to fostering diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within our venue. Situated in one of the most diverse cities in the world, we wholeheartedly embrace rich cultural heritage. The MBCC values and celebrates diversity in its workforce, as well as in its clients, guests, customers, vendors, talent/performers, players, suppliers, and community business partners. We are committed to ensuring that our long-standing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging initiatives are incorporated into all our workplace interactions, experiences, and business decisions. 

Alongside promoting diversity within our workforce, we actively encourage our team members to contribute to the community year-round by volunteering. Furthermore, we have implemented guidelines to ensure that minority-owned businesses are recognized, considered, and supported.
