MIAMI (August 14, 2017) – Re-opening in 2018, the highly anticipated Miami Beach Convention Center will feature a state-of-the-art sustainable design and eco-conscious operational procedures. More than simply a $615-million construction project, the development of the Miami Beach Convention Center represents the destination’s engineering commitment to combatting, and understanding the impact of climate change and sea level rise. The Miami Beach Convention Center is on track to receive LEED Silver certification upon being fully open in 2018.
“The Miami Beach Convention Center project reflects our commitment to not only being a world-class destination for meetings/conventions and events, but a home for some of the most advanced environmental thought leadership and sustainable technology,” said Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau President & CEO William D. Talbert, III, CDME. “From landscaping and lighting to architecture and recycling, our LEED Silver-certified facility will truly set the bar amongst convention centers around the world.”
