The event meets in Miami every year for a business-driven and passionate event that bridges traditional conferences and modern festivals. The event lasts from June 8 to June 11 and will include 42 pre-scheduled appointments with relevant individuals. In addition to that, the event curates both the crowd and the scene to go beyond the average trade show, transforming the conference into a "Ministry of Ideas"; networking events into electric parties; and dull plasterboard booths into a revolutionary show space.
Market Maker: The US is the biggest luxury hospitality market in the world, with 25-50% of global revenue originating stateside. Miami is at the center, with the world's greatest collection of high-end hotels back-to-back along Collins Avenue and quick links to the Latin American market.
Boutique Breaker: Miami was at the crest of the boutique hotel wave back in the 90s, with early developers like Chris Blackwell and Ian Schrager reinvigorating the city into today's thriving scene with properties like The Tides and Delano South Beach.
Genre Shaker: The city's unlikely evolution into an art epicenter has seen Wynwood become a global destination for street art, international art fairs like Art Basel and Design Miami set up camp and a revitalized Design District emerge, packed with high-end shops, bars and restaurants.
Value: The leaders of the contemporary travel evolution in one place means the opportunity to negotiate rates, compare and contrast products and build relationships with trusted partners for a great ROI.
Quality: We've already cut through the clutter to find the visionary brands that understand the demands of the rising creative class, guaranteeing you direct contact with high-level representatives from the industry's current and future mavericks.
Structure: Bespoke appointments, chosen by you, with relevant individuals that can make a difference to your business, are combined with streamlined and productive networking breaks and lunches to maximize your valuable time out of the office.
Style: Our dynamic conference, bar-raising Awards do, incredible evening parties and forward-thinking design set the tone for Miami-style networking.
LE Miami 2015 will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, which also plays host to other important events like Art Basel and the building itself is a striking example of South Beach's iconic Art Deco architecture.
LE Miami is not your standard trade show. The event has conceived an environment that reflects the anarchic , inventive spirit of the creative class. The event takes cues from the world of art, fashion, music and design and fuses exhibitor stands with spaces to network and be inspired. This includes a DJ booth, bar and big screens. Rebels with cause indeed.
