Portman-CMC Chosen for Convention Center Overhaul

Recently, a vote was held to see who would be chosen for the Miami Beach Convention Center overhaul project. Portman-CMC won over ACE in a 4-3 vote. It appears that the main reason for this was that Portman-CMC’s plan included a separate ballroom. On the other hand, ACE’s solution was to join the ballroom and convention center.


The main reason they favor the detached ballroom is so that visitors could have a more people oriented environment. After all, the main idea behind this project is to be able to focus on improving the convention center.
