The travel and hospitality industry of Greater Miami is strong and vibrant, employing a record-breaking number of employees and welcoming more visitors than ever before. Our community’s rich history includes incredible contributions by early Bahamian settlers and many of our hotels and tourism partners welcome Bahamians each day. After the devastating effects of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) is proud to announce a series of initiatives to benefit Hurricane Dorian relief efforts.

Proceeds from this year’s GMCVB Annual Meeting on October 17th will benefit Hurricane Dorian relief efforts for the Bahamas. In addition, the GMCVB will donate a portion of proceeds from every Miami Spice reservation booked on OpenTable during the month of September. We are also partnering with the Greater Miami and the Beaches Hotel Association (GMBHA) in asking our local hotels to donate rooms for potential evacuees and distributing cards at check-in asking for donations.

All these initiatives will benefit the United Way of Miami-Dade County’s Operation Helping Hands program providing relief to the Bahamas. To learn more or to make a donation, please visit: www.MiamiTourism4Bahamas.com.

Together, the visitor community and the travel industry for Greater Miami can make a difference. Thank you for your support and consideration.
