The South Beach Series: Why Miami makes for the perfect conference destination

Why Miami makes for the perfect conference destination

Miami’s white-sand beaches, thriving nightlife, and Latin American culture has long been known to attract vacationers. However, its value extends far beyond tourism. The Magic City is also a popular destination for conferences, internal leadership events, and other in-person events. In fact, Kayo chose Miami as the host city for the 2023 Private Equity, Real Estate and Sustainable Investing Summits.

Here are three reasons why firms are choosing Miami for professional events and why you should join us in South Beach this year.

  1. Fewer business distractions

If you’re a busy investor, you know the typical conference experience. It’s often a dozen or so hours of professional development and networking fit in around meetings with clients in the busy host city — whether New York City, Boston, Chicago or D.C. The conference can be enriching, and you may make numerous beneficial connections. However, the trip is so jam-packed that you return unable to remember much from the event.

Everyone understands the convenience of scheduling client meetings when traveling for a conference. But often, these meetings steal your focus and energy from the event you made the trip for.

Miami is not a headquarters for as many firms as other cities, like Boston or New York City. This means conference attendees can take ownership over their professional development and fully dedicate their time and attention to the session content, connecting with other attendees, and enjoying themselves.

  1. Prime location

Traveling to Miami is convenient. The Miami International Airport (MIA) has more than 80 airlines to deliver passengers to approximately 150 destinations around the world.

Just over 20 minutes away by car is Miami’s South Beach. Along the South Beach are numerous hotels and great meeting spaces, including the renowned Loews Miami Beach Hotel, the venue for Kayo’s Private Equity, Real Estate and Sustainable Investing Summits. Walk a few steps from the luxurious oceanfront resort, and you’ll be immersed in the shopping and dining of famous Lincoln Road, as well as the nightlife and entertainment of Ocean Drive.

  1. An oceanfront getaway

With Miami’s year-round warm weather and more than 20 miles of Atlantic coastline, many firms recognize the city as a place for celebration. However, Miami has more than just pristine beaches to offer.

Miami is known for its art scene, collection of art deco buildings, and Cuban influence. The city is home to many diverse neighborhoods and cultures that bring community and soul to Miami as a whole. It also has numerous outdoor activities, parks, and museums, and nearly 10,000 restaurants. Professionals can connect over curated experiences, with visits to the Everglades National Park, Miami Art Museum, Bal Harbour, and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens — to name a few — in any down time during their trip.
