Miami, USA

Offering world-class facilities, year-round sunshine, beautiful beaches, and the newly reimagined, state-of-the-art Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC) - Miami is quite rightly one of the world's leading meeting destinations.

With over 400+ flights daily, it's easily accessible from all over the world. There's a thriving culture and dining scene, a range of exceptional meeting spaces and an endless choice of activities on offer. It's no wonder the state of Florida was voted best for meetings in North America by American Express in 2019.
