Traditional luxury belongs to the past. LE Miami is the catalyst for the next evolution of travel. We call it definition by style.
In the last 20 years, a new charge of creative, design-led and community-integrated ‘lifestyle’ hotels have transformed the travel industry. The emergence of the new ‘creative class’, representing 30% of the Western workforce and growing by 7% every year, has driven a demand for travel products that are unique, culturally connected and bespoke.
Consequently, the contemporary definition of luxury isn’t about money. It’s about creating an inimitable experience based on style, space, wellbeing, content, design, authenticity, storytelling, urbanity and innovation. The future belongs to the pioneers with the capacity and bravery to act on this cultural shift first.
LE Miami’s purpose is to identify and unite these travel rebels by connecting influential buyers representing this creative class clientele with the edgiest international travel brands.
Our Limited Edition collective meets in Miami annually for our fiercely business-driven yet passionately festival-like event. Across four days there are up to 45 pre-scheduled appointments with relevant individuals. However, we curate both our crowd and our scene to go beyond the average trade show, transforming our conference into a Ministry of Ideas; networking events into electric parties; and dull plasterboard booths into a revolutionary show space.
Idiosyncratic, eclectic and increasingly iconic, LE Miami’s namesake and host city is as Limited Edition as the event itself. Miami’s patchwork of clashing neighbourhoods meld into an emerging international hub for creativity – and make it the natural setting for the world’s only event to connect the high-end contemporary travel industry with the creative class.
LE Miami takes place in the Miami Beach Convention Centre – the host of other important events such as Art Basel, and a striking example of South Beach’s iconic Art Deco architecture.
Not being your standard trade show, we’ve conceived an environment that reflects the rebellious, inventive spirit of the creative class. Taking our cues from the world of art, fashion, music and design, LE Miami fuses exhibitor stands with spaces to network and be inspired, including a DJ booth, bar, art installations and big screens.
LE Miami sits as part of Beyond Luxury Media Ltd‘s portfolio of events dedicated to creating genre-defining marketplaces for the high-end travel market. The masterminds behind PURE Life Experiences and We Are Africa, our founders Serge & Sarah, believe in building passionate communities and dynamic forums where travel innovation and artistry are discussed and celebrated.
