location is right by Biscayne Bay and across the way from American Airlines Arena. The People mover ends nearby at the former Omni.
It is about the most MIAMI location you could possibly have. It is also more convenient to South Beach via the MacArthur and Venitian causeways.
They are not just going to put the fair there in ther rubble of the Herald either. They layed a 250,000 square foot concrete floor over the area. There will be six "hospitality areas" at the fair including a waterfront cafe, an indoor cafe, outdoor dining area, a cocktail lound and an outside cocktail deck overlooking the bay (in addition to VIP lounges). The hospitality areas can accommodate 600 people at a time.
Art Miami and Context are always worth visiting for the art. This year they are worth visiting for the view as well.
