In these unprecedented times, the Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC) would like to reassure our partners, customers and stakeholders that as always, the health, safety, security, and well-being of all who enter our venue is our number one priority.
The MBCC continues to monitor information from public health officials, industry affiliates and associations to develop best practices during this pandemic. Like many venues across the nation, the MBCC has taken sensible precautions onsite such as:
- The purchase of extra hand sanitizer dispensers placed in high trafficked areas throughout the venue.
- Installation of additional hygiene advisory signage throughout the venue.
- Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting commonly touched objects by using cleaning products on surface areas (including, but not limited to, lavatory fixtures, paper towel dispensers, vanity tops, mirrors and door handles).
- Employing touch-free surfaces in our restrooms including automatically flushing toilets, hands-free faucets, paper towel dispensers and hand dryers.
- Employing face coverings and social distancing measures onsite, in support of public health recommendations.
- MBCC staff training on the proper techniques to prevent transmission of sickness.
- MBCC food and beverage service providers Centerplate is also coordinating globally to manage the impact of COVID-19 to protect employees, clients and consumers. Centerplate’s existing rules for food safety, personal hygiene and infection control are rigorously followed in order to minimize the risk of this, or any other virus spreading.
After action and restoration plans are developed based on the ultimate usage and impact to the venue, following the recommendations and guidance of federal, state, county and municipal public health officials. The venue will be restored with protecting our collective health as the primary concern for everyone involved.
State of FL Division of Emergency Management, Miami Dade County Office of Emergency Management and Department of Health, and the City of Miami Beach are all working in close collaboration with the MBCC to determine the appropriate responses to this public health issue.
