In the Top Ten countries that send the most tourists to Miami, Argentina received a visit from the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, or GMCVB, during the last week of August. Carolyn Corrigan, Director of Travel Industry Sales, together with representatives of some of her partners, met with more than 100 travel agents to review the attractions of the destination and the latest news.

“This has been our first trip after the pandemic, and the reality is that the experience has been extremely rewarding. Not only for the fact that we have been able to visit a country as beautiful as Argentina and meet with its people, who work side by side with us in the promotion of Miami; but because Miami is a city that has grown enormously. Their proposal is so great and rich, that sometimes it is difficult to convey it if it is not with meetings like the ones we have had,” explains Carolyn.

The agenda of activities that began in the City of Buenos Aires, then continued in the cities of Mendoza and Córdoba. In addition to the variety of cultural, gastronomic and entertainment attractions that the city offers, highlights include museums, festivals and fairs, top-class hotels, top-class international restaurants, attractive nightlife and endless options for shopping trips.

Lots of news

Miami's visit to Argentina could not begin any other way than with the mention of Messi. And the player's entry into Inter Miami meant, just to mention one example, that the club's Instagram account went from 1 million to 14.9 million followers in a matter of a few months.

Miami is preparing to host the next 2026 FIFA World Cup. Regarding the latter, a total of 104 matches between 48 teams from around the world will be played in 16 cities in Canada, Mexico and the United States.  

In this sense, Vivo! is the new space within the Dolphin Mall with dining options at all hours and proposals to enjoy nightlife, attend concerts, go out at night or relax with friends and family. Its Sports&Social space has become a paradise for sports fans thanks to the transmission of sporting events on its LED screen of more than 15 meters.  

Adriana Valero, Marketing & Tourism Manager of the site, said that the location of the shopping center is strategic and that there they offer locker service to leave suitcases, WiFi, money exchange places, free parking, more than 240 stores, 13 restaurants and 20 fast food options.

Currently, Greather Miami and Miami Beach has a total of 66,831 rooms available for tourism. In 2022 alone, without an event of such magnitude and attendance as the World Cup, the destination welcomed more than 26.5 million visitors. That is why, in the next 3 to 5 years, the opening of at least 12 hotels is expected, including some luxury brands such as Treehouse, Aman, Baccarat, Waldorf Astoria and Bvlgari, the first hotel of this brand. in United States.

Presenting the hotel offer were María Daniel, Sales Director of Trump International Beach Resort; Ibis Romero, Executive Director of City of Sunny Isles; Hers Olsen Beltran, Sales Director of Marseilles Hotel, Dorchester Hotel and Dorchester Suites; Jessica Santiago, Corporate Group Sales & Events Manager at South Beach Hotel Group; Crystal Lezama, Director of Sales & Marketing at Moxy South Beach; and Josue Kant, Leisure & Transient Sales Director of Nautilus Soneta Miami Beach. The facilities and characteristics of each site, differential services and new investments, were some of the topics addressed by all of them.

Chosen Gastronomic City of the Year by Bon Appétit magazine, and with 12 restaurants awarded by the Michelin Guide, Miami awaits the opening of more than 20 new top-level restaurants.

The city also prepares its infrastructure around transportation and mobility. The inauguration of new “Brightline” high-speed train stations, scheduled for September 15, will finally link Miami with Orlando in just a few hours. “The stations will be located within the Orlando Airport, so not only will it be very convenient for tourists, but it is a total game-changer for family vacations,” explains Carolyn.

On the other hand, the new PortMiami cruise terminal is already under construction. This new building, which will be able to receive two mega cruise ships simultaneously, will mean a movement of up to 28,000 passengers per day.

“Whether the reason for going to Miami is its beaches, its museums, its exquisite gastronomy or vibrant culture; Messi, the World Cup, the Miami Open or Formula 1 in terms of sports; Art Basel, Jazz in the Garden or the Ultra Music Festival, in terms of art and music; Miami is a destination with great proposals throughout the year, for everyone, and accessible to all budgets,” concludes the Director of Travel Industry Sales of the GMCVB.

In line with the latter, Miami Temptations is the series of themed months designed so that visitors can enjoy the wide range of proposals that the city offers through special programming that includes discounts and offers for visitors and locals. The programs distributed throughout the year are: Miami Hotel Months; Miami Spice Restaurant Months; Miami Entertainment Months; Miami Arts, Culture & Heritage Months; Miami Health & Wellness Months; Miami Attraction & Museum Months; and Miami Spa Months.
