VOTE YES ON NOVEMBER 6th
A vote YES on Miami Beach Referendum #3 will complete the Miami Beach Convention Center by granting permission for a 100% privately-funded, new connected headquarter hotel.
What’s in it for Miami Beach and our residents?
Completing the convention center with a privately-funded headquarter hotel will help keep existing events such as Art Basel and E-Merge Americas and attract new, world-class events - giving our convention center the opportunity to live up to its full potential.
Additionally, the new privately-funded hotel will generate $16 Million in new guaranteed revenue for Miami Beach. The total projected new revenue is $225 million, which will fund local schools and education programs, stormwater and resiliency projects to combat flooding, and traffic reduction measures. Other benefits include hundreds of new quality jobs for Miami Beach residents and a boost to our local economy.
Miami Beach Referendum #3 will successfully finish the job of the newly renovated Convention Center by adding a privately-funded, new connected headquarter hotel. Miami Beach has been anticipating a completed Convention Center, and a vote YES will deliver this long-held vision without seeking funds from Miami Beach taxpayers. The hotel will generate $225 million in additional revenue for the city which will fund local schools, resiliency projects and traffic reduction measures.
By approving a connected hotel for the convention center, residents can ensure that Miami Beach has the edge when applying for major events and conferences—whether Art Basel, eMerge Americas, medical conventions, or world-class events.
