RE:MiamiBeach focuses on all things real estate on the Beach. If it impacts the value of your property or quality of life as a resident or business owner, then we cover it. Our commitment: Nothing but the Beach.
There are many outlets that report on Miami and Miami-Dade (and do it well), but the Beach has its own unique characteristics that often get lost. At the same time, there are many changes on the horizon here that have remained unexplored due to the time and space limitations of other media.
We delve deeper into the issues, some of which may not be the most exciting (water and sewer rates, anyone?) but that have a direct impact on you. We highlight ideas, proposals, and policy changes before they reach a final vote so you can participate in the discussion. And, we follow up to keep you posted on implementation as projects move forward.
Ultimately, our mission is to encourage a collaborative dialogue among the City and its residents, businesses, and investors for a better Miami Beach.
We hope you will become a regular visitor to our website and subscribe to our weekly newsletter.
We’re all in this together.

Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau
For our Travel Industry Professionals
As we navigate the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) and Greater Miami and The Beaches Hotel Association (GMBHA) are proud to support the hundreds of thousands of airline, cruise line and travel & tourism employees that are the lifeblood of Miami’s hospitality industry and our economy. Already, Florida hotels and support businesses have cut 400,000 jobs, and we’re seeing partners and co-workers throughout our community struggle to meet such basic needs as rent/mortgage assistance, food, medication and utilities. In partnership with United Way of Miami-Dade, The Miami Foundation, Miami Herald/el Nuevo Herald, Health Foundation of South Florida, The Fredrick A. DeLuca Foundation and others, the GMCVB and GMBHA have helped launch the Miami Pandemic Response Fund. Through the United Way’s Operation Helping Hands, we have joined to address the short-term impact on vulnerable families and small businesses throughout our community. For details on how you can donate and/or apply for assistance, please visit United Way Covid 19 Resource Center or the GMCVB’s Help for Tourism page. We also urge you to share this information with industry stakeholders and other community resources to amplify this message. From hurricanes to viruses, our industry has weathered many challenges and we know strong partnerships and close collaboration will be key in our recovery as our community and frontline employees face unprecedented economic challenges. Together we’ll build a #StrongerMiami.
