Miami Truly Shines, And Here’s Why

A Sponsored Message from Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau.


Miami is different — it just is.

Few cities can deliver its global sophistication, tropical beauty and cultural diversity – the options are endless.

Visitors can stroll through Miami’s numerous neighborhoods to witness the cultural diversity in everything from food to art to music. Go on a discovery tour and see the Caribbean heritage in Little Haiti, the Bahamian roots in West Coconut Grove and the rich African American soul in Historic Overtown.

While Miami continues to shine a spotlight on its unique people and places alongside its incredible year-round tropical weather, its commitment to visitors’ safety remains Priority No. 1.

The community aligned back in March to launch a Miami Shines Destination Pledge to ensure compliance with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) highest safety standards for the airport, Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC), hotels, transportation, restaurants, retail and attractions.

From your clients first experience arriving at the Miami International Airport (MIA), the commitment to safety will be readily apparent. It’s the first airport in Florida and second in the U.S. to receive health accreditation from the Airports Council International (ACI) World for implementing the best safety and sanitation measures. Numerous apps allow contactless ticketing, pre-order food purchases, and even identifies the quickest Gates for entry.

In addition, the MBCC recently achieved the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ Facility Accreditation, the gold standard for facilities and venues worldwide. This ensures the most stringent protocols and training for cleaning, disinfection and prevention. Their 1.4 million square feet of flexible indoor event space and nine acres of gorgeous outdoor event space helps everyone achieve social distancing in the Miami sunshine for any event.

Our Hotels have also exceeded CDC safety standards so guests can check-in to paradise with peace of mind. Daily temperature checks for guests and staff, enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols for rooms and common areas, social distancing guidelines and the best customer service to guide you safely to all the shops, dining, attractions and outdoor experiences just steps away.

It’s considerations like these that allow visitors to enjoy all that Miami has to offer in peace. One can enjoy both Miami’s vibrant art scene and its 1.1 million acres of national parks with an optimum feeling of tranquility and safety.

Which brings us back to “Miami Shines.” It’s more than a tagline. It’s our team effort for recovery to drive business back to our world-class hotels, restaurants, museums, and attractions.
