Following a $640 million renovation, the award-winning Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC) in Florida has expanded. Additions include a 60,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom, four junior ballrooms, and 500,000 square feet of exhibition space. Also added was an expanded Grand Lobby, pre-function areas, 84 breakout rooms, $10.2 million-worth of artwork, and 9 acres of public green space. The campus also features two new event spaces: Venu, an elegant space for upscale meetings and events, and the Rum Room,
a 1920s-inspired restaurant with a menu of tapas and Florida rums.
The MBCC is a recipient of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council STAR Facility Accreditation and LEED Silver certification, denoting a commitment to future outbreak and pandemic preparedness, as well as a commitment to promoting sustainability, respectively. A hotel connected with the MBCC, a Grand Hyatt, is currently under development and is expected to open in spring 2026.
