TRAILBLAZERS: A SHOUT-OUT TO INNOVATORS IN THE AMERICAS

At LE Miami we’re all about celebrating disruptive hotel brands who boast vision, style and flair.

This year, to give a shout out to some seriously rebellious innovators, we’re partnering with Sleeper Magazine and their industry-leading awards show AHEAD Americas, which recognises the work of pioneers blazing a trail for hospitality, experience and design.


Taking place during LE Miami on Tuesday 12 June, this celebration of creativity is being hosted by Miami Beach’s new cultural cornerstone, Faena Forum, and the event is open to the whole LE Miami collective.

If you want to by inspired by the work of some fellow luxury travel visionaries you can purchase a ticket at a rebels-only early-bird rate using code LEMIAMI18 to attend via www.aheadawards.com/americas/
