Miami and its Beaches Extend Discounts and Packages Through End of October

by Richard D'Ambrosio

In an effort to stimulate travel following the glancing blow of Hurricane Irma, Miami and its Beaches have launched a new promotion titled #MiamiNow, that provides packaged discounts for lodging, dining, entertainment and shopping.

Coordinated and launched by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB), the #MiamiNow promotion runs through Oct. 31, consolidating six of the region's twelve "Temptations Programs," which have all been promoted in the past.

For example, Miami Spice Restaurant Month includes 200 restaurants offering reduced prices ($23 per person for lunch and brunch and $39 per person for dinner).

Hotels throughout the destination from Miami Beach, Downtown Miami, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Sunny Isles Beach and more are offering promotional rates and special amenity packages, including:  Loews Miami Beach Hotel, Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Ritz-Carlton South Beach, Coconut Grove and Bal Harbour properties, Sonesta Coconut Grove Miami, Marenas Beach Resort Sunny Isles Beach, The Biltmore Hotel Coral Gables, EPIC Hotel, Four Season Hotel Miami and Mandarin Oriental Miami.

Tip of the Day

As an industry, we are selling experiences and travel. What better connection can we make than suitcases for children? I want to put a call out to fellow advisors to find out who runs the foster care in their community and ask them to collect luggage, book bags, toiletries and such from their clients.
