Hotel, Travel & Parking

Miami Beach, Florida – home to the JIS October Show - is one of the most popular destinations in the world, and for good reason. Consistently ranked as one of the most visited cities across the globe, Miami Beach is home to the beautiful Art Deco District, famous Lincoln Road shopping, beach front hotels, incredible restaurants, trendy night life, and international airports that make it a destination hub for leisure, tourism, and international business. The South Florida location makes it an especially easy-to-access destination for travelers from Latin America and the Caribbean. Miami Beach’s tropical climate produces one of the warmest winters in the United States, and offers visitors pristine beaches with water temperatures ranging from 75 F in winter to 86 F in the summer/fall months. The endless places to stay, things to do, events to attend, and things to see in Miami Beach are all only minutes away from the Miami Beach Convention Center – making your upcoming trip to Miami Beach a true "business meets pleasure" event.

Our goal is to make your planning and travel experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. If you're planning to stay near the show, the Miami Beach Convention Center is located at 1900 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33139.
