Miami: A Booming City 

Miami: A Booming City 

Miami has long been known as an international travel destination. The cosmopolitan melting pot is overflowing with culture, art, food, and an impressive nightlife. 

On top of that, the weather is good year-round, with mild winters and hot summers, making it the perfect retreat for those looking to escape from the brutal East Coast climates. 

Miami's heavy Latino influence draws people from all parts of the globe (you can’t go far without passing a bar or restaurant playing Latin music). But what makes the city really special is its one-of-a-kind offering of world-class hospitality, dining, and endless MIami VIP events. 

Why Miami is an Up & Coming City
The second-largest metropolis on the East Coast, Miami is a highly desirable place to live, work, retire, or just spend a few days vacation. Home to the Miami Heat and Miami Dolphins, as well as David Beckham’s Club Internacional de Futbol Miami and the 2022 Formula One Grand Prix, you’ll find no shortage of global sporting events. 

If you like to party, you'll never tire of Miami’s world-class restaurants, hotels, shops, cruises, and beaches. The city also has an impressive visual and performing arts scene. Wynwood and the Design District are two neighborhoods that have been completely transformed to showcase some of the best art and design talent Miami has to offer. 

Top Events Happening in Miami 

There are dozens of international Miami VIP events happening all year round. The following events are some of the biggest on the global stage and bring with them some incredibly exclusive experiences that are not to be missed. 

Ultra Music Festival
If you’re looking for an unforgettable weekend in Miami, look no further than one of the best music festivals in the world: Ultra Music Festival. 

After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the festival is back and ready to make up for lost time. The three-day festival, which will take place from the 25th to the 27th of March, will host over 150,000 people at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. 

There are very few festivals in the world that manage to get such a quality lineup, with Afrojack, Alison Wonderland, David Guetta, DJ Snake, Nicky Romero, Tiesto, and Zed’s Dead, plus 20 more headliners and almost 150 supporting acts. If that seems too much, Ultra also has its own app to help you remember the acts you want to see and to notify you of any announcements or schedule changes. 

VIP admission allows for expedited entry, dedicated restrooms and bars, a VIP Village, and an exclusive deck with the best seats in the house for the Ultra Main Stage.

The Miami Open
From the 21st of March to the 3rd of April, 2022, the renowned Hard Rock Stadium will host one of the world’s greatest two-week tennis tournaments. With a return to full capacity, the skill and talent that draws in crowds from all over the world will be on full display, with names including Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Nick Kyrgios, and Naomi Osaka.

Outside of the matches themselves, there'll be an array of entertainment options, with the Open bringing in an exclusively curated mix of music, food, and fashion. Local artists will also be painting murals throughout the space. 

Miami VIP Event and Luxury Suite packages are available, offering VIP parking, express lanes, an exclusive entrance, and all-inclusive upscale food and beverage options.

LIV Miami
Since opening in 2008, LIV has been one of the hottest and most star-studded clubs in the whole of Miami. LIV once held Skrillex and Justin Bieber in the same weekend and there’s a rumor that Mark Cuban once spent 100K there on a bottle of champagne.

Last summer, the club closed for a $10 million renovation and has managed to come back with more impressive events than ever. In March, you can look forward to LIV hosting David Guetta, Tiesto, and Pusha T, among others. Owner David Grutman has called Sunday nights at LIV “the biggest hip-hop party in the world.” That might seem like a big claim, but with chart-topping artists and 400 LED panels that orchestrate choreographed light shows and take up the ceiling of the entire club, we can see where he’s coming from. 

Miami VIP event bottle service packages at LIV Miami range from $1,500 to $6,000.


2022 Miami Grand Prix 
On the 8th of May Miami will, for the first time, be home to the Formula 1 Grand Prix at the Miami International Autodrome. 

This action-packed race circles the Hard Rock Stadium, home to Miami Dolphins, and will see drivers reach average speeds of 222km/h. While the first Grand Prix in Miami took place in 1926, Formula 1 has never visited the city. With a significant investment in the infrastructure of the city and the race, the Miami Grand Prix has begun its ten-year F1 contract and expects to become a regular home of the world-renowned event. 

VIP experiences are available which include F1 Insider Access, an exclusive pit lane walk, guided paddock access, and trackside hospitality.

Palm Court, Miami Design District

Palm Court is one of the United States’ most luxurious shopping malls. The space is well equipped to host private dinners, art shows, music performances, and fashion events. 
Architecturally stunning, Palm Court is home to an iconic geodesic dome designed by the legendary architect Buckminster Fuller and boasts over 50 palm trees of various species. Visitors also find an extensive collection of high-end timepieces and jewelry brands, which means Palm Courts also often attracts celebrities and famous names from all over the country. You’ll also find public art installations, designer boutiques, and an array of high-end dining options. 

Just three miles from Downtown Miami, Palm Court at Miami Design District is a must-see while visiting the Magic City.
