Miami Beach – “America’s Riviera”
HostingCon 2014 will take place in Miami Beach, Florida, known as “America’s Riviera”, at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Miami Beach is an island city of just 7.1 square miles that separates Biscayne Bay from the radiant blue waters of the Atlantic, with over 7 miles of beaches, golf courses, parks, art, world class shopping and international restaurants.
Miami Beach is seen as a trend-setting arts and entertainment Mecca, and a shopping and cultural wonder by visitors, world travelers, celebrities and locals alike. It is no longer just a place to lie on the beach soaking up the sun, due to an economic boom that has sprung from the refurbishment of the Art Deco Historic District. Miami Beach offers visitors a dazzling array of amenities to enjoy including café’s, clubs, shopping along South Beach’s Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road and Washington Avenue, and many international restaurants whose chefs push the frontiers of culinary excellence.
