I know we say this every year, but LE Miami 2019 really was the most inspiring, surprising and down-right outrageous celebration of everything contemporary travel. For those of you who were there, relive the rebellious vibes with our Top 10 highlights, and for those of you who weren’t… where were you?? Here’s what you missed…

  1. Sparking some rebellious ideas at this year’s Ministry of Ideas in the inspiring surroundings of 1 Hotel South Beach, where the likes of Equinox’s sleep master Matt Delaney, performer and educator Aja Monet and cannabis pioneer Scott Campbell helped inspire the future of contemporary travel.

Getting cultural on South Beach with an even more diverse and dynamic line-up at our REBELRY evening events, as Kimpton, Four Seasons and The Betsy brought music, cocktails and chic sophistication to our Tuesday and Wednesday nights – as well as an all-new type of happy hour inspired by wellbeing and reconnecting with the very best version of yourself.
