Attending a conference here was probably my worst conference experience ever (and that includes the time there was a trip to the hospital involved). The layout of the center is nonsensical and ill-conceived for those who are not in peak physical condition. I felt terrible for the people I've seen in walking boots, with canes, etc, because there is NOTHING in that monstrosity of a building to provide any sort of respite. The facility itself - like the meeting rooms and such are fine - but the fact that there are no work or collaboration spaces, or any place to sit and social or even take a break on the phenomenally long walks from one section to another really shows there was a major lack of planning and oversight for the people that the building would serve. You'll need to pack supplies to get through a couple days at this place.

Visited for a conference. Very clean and open. Also very spacious - could be a very long walk between sessions.

Have been visiting this Miami Beach Convention Center for decades, from many Auto Shows, Home Shows to Art Basel and Graduations. Although they always have food and drinks, it's not what you go to the center for, its for the Event. Happily the new renovations finally have happened and the exterior alone makes quite a statement that this is not the same 1960s Convention Center. From the exterior to the new lobby, very modern clean and sleek looking. Now let's see how the parking area out front ends up looking. Glad to see it all finally happen.

unfortunately the convention Center is still not ready. They have a big delay and I think this does influence the Traffic in Miami Beach. Hoping it will be done soon and we can enjoy great things coming.

The convention center is nice but like most of Miami and Miami Beach, parking is impossible and expensive when you find it, and if you screw up and don't understand the complicated parking restrictions they tow your car. Hotels and resturants are expensive in the area. I would rather go to Ft Lauderdale or Orlando convention centers where the patrons are remembered in the convention center use.

Worked many a show there. Place looks terrible. Parking is expensive. The choice of food available for product shows is terrible. They need to take it down and put up a state of the art center so Miami can attract the big shows, like the Consumer Electronics Show and the Houseware Show. Vegas and Chicago, mostly Vegas gets the big one. Miami is sophisticated enough now to attract world visitors and is the gateway to South Americal

Walking into this place you fell that Crockett & Tubbs will step out of the shadows at any moment. This convention center is functional, but incredibly dated. Very limited food, lots of poured concrete pillars make the meeting room area feel a bit old and confined.

TIP: Walk 3 blocks to Lincoln Ave for lunch.

Two weeks ago I spent 6 days in Miami Beach attending a seminar at the Convention Center. I am no stranger to the Miami Beach Convention center since I have worked conventions there on many occasions.

Now this past trip was different. First and foremost, the parking in Miami Beach is a trip in itself. I am familiar with the main parking lot outside of "C" Entrance and this is where I chose to park my car believing that nothing could happen.

The second day of the seminar, we ended late and I did not get to the car until 8pm. The lot was well lit and I proceeded to my car without a problem. I Started the car and began to drive looking for the exit. I was tired, so I thought that perhaps I was just not aware where the exit was. I drove around the lot 3 times saying to myself, this has to be the craziest of situations, there was no OPEN Exit to leave the lot.

A young gentleman was outside the lot and saw my dilemma and asked if he could assist. I told him what was happening, so he offered to drive around the lot and see if he could move one of the locked gates. Another failed attempt to leave The Miami Beach Convention Center.
Now it is almost 8:30pm and I am locked inside an open parking lot in Miami Beach. The parking lot security people were there to take my money when I arrived in the morning but they failed to be present to let people out. This was a first for me.

I called 911 and explained my dilemma. The dispatch operator assured me that an officer would be dispatched immediately. 20 minutes go by and no officer. I called back and this time a different operator asked me my name. I told her and she said, please hold on. A few minutes later she came back on line only to tell me that they had to contact the security company to open the gate. That was the straw that broke the camels back. Why did they not make the call when I contacted them initially??? I was close to one hour sitting in an open parking lot, alone at night in Miami Beach.

The security guard apologized and said that the incidence was out of their hands since the City of Miami Beach instructed them to lock up the lot to ensure that the City would not loose parking revenue. This to me was adding insult to injury, Miami Beach. Parking Revenue is of more importance to you than the safety of people visiting your city.

So as far as the title of this review goes, Miami Beach or Miami B...., well I will take Broward County.
