Our conference is during the same week as the Winter Music Conference (WMC) to be held March 21-30. WMC expects over 100,000 attendees, 2/3 of whom will be under 30. Their events will be at the Convention Center, about 2 miles south of where our conference is located. There will be competition for hotel rooms and discounted rates will be difficult to find.
There are about 200 hotels in Miami Beach. We considered trip advisor reviews, distance to the conference site, and prices before negotiating favorable rates at three hotels. We recommend making reservations now.
