Are you responsible for organizing or at least doing some of the planning for a corporate gathering? Whether you’re looking to put together something for company managers, a shareholder’s meeting, or even an expo for anyone in your industry, you need a place for a group of like-minded professionals from around the nation, and possibly even the world, to get together and focus for a while. This could be for a few days, a full week, or even multiple weeks.
As you consider various locations that might host your event, the sunny city of Miami is likely to make your early list of potential contenders. At that point, is it worth contacting the Miami Conventions and Visitors Bureau?
It’s at least worth an initial consultation to see what they can maybe do for you. They are there to promote getting conventions and their visitors to town, which any local government would love to do. It doesn’t cost them that much to help out anyone bringing lots of people to town, but the economic activity generated is a bonanza for local businesses and the tax base.
Miami can prove a great destination for conventions given the great climate of the city and how much there is to do there. This is even more true in what might be winter months for other places, as convention attendees might escape snow and ice for a place where they can enjoy evenings on the beach. There’s also plenty to do around the region too, be it SeaWorld, the Everglades, or Disney to the north, or just a quick cruise into the Keys or Caribbean to extend a vacation.
One potential downside might actually be flight times though. Anyone living in the North or West is going to be on their planes a lot longer than others.
