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.
Without a headquarter hotel, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau has estimated that Miami Beach has lost $130 million in revenue from conventions lost.
