Dear FIABCI members and distinguished guests,
It is an honor to invite you to the 73rd FIABCI World Real Estate Congress, happening from June 5 to 9, 2023, in Miami. Together with the MIAMI REALTORS®, our special host, we bring you an exciting program, including two days of high-level conferences, business networking opportunities, and study tours of some of the city’s most iconic buildings. But that is not all. As one of the International Real Estate Federation’s most important annual events, the World Congress is also marked by the Prix d’Excellence Awards, dubbed the “Oscars of Real Estate” by The Wall Street Journal.
It is only fitting that this momentous event will take place in Miami, one of the most desirable destinations in the world right now. Beyond strong tourism and warm climate, the second-largest city in Florida brings a lot to the table, thanks to the unstoppable Miami movement promoted by Mayor Francis X. Suarez. The aim of the movement, in the mayor’s own words, is to create a truly sustainable technological sector, and invest in the infrastructure that surrounds it. As such, the city is experiencing a real estate boom that hasn’t gone unnoticed to international investors looking for great business opportunities now that travel restrictions have eased.
For all these reasons, I invite you to join us from June 5 to 9, 2023, for the 73rd FIABCI World Real Estate Congress. Register today to secure your place and take advantage of the early bird rates.
I look forward to seeing you all in Miami.
FIABCI World President
Greater Miami is synonymous with beautiful beaches and towering palm trees – but in its urban center, it’s the cityscape of glittering skyscrapers over Biscayne Bay that gets all the attention. Diverse, dynamic and densely populated, Downtown Miami and the adjoining Brickell area is a hub of international finance, dining, arts and entertainment that no visitor should miss.
Despite its modern façade, this neighborhood has its roots firmly planted in the past, springing up along the banks of what is now known as the Miami River. Miami’s first development boom started here in the 1900s, and icons such as the DuPont Building (Miami’s only Art Deco skyscraper) and the Freedom Tower (where Cuban refugees were processed for entry into the U.S.) were raised in the following years. Today, the Freedom Tower is home to the Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) at Miami Dade College. Downtown Miami’s newest architectural icons – which do double duty as popular entertainment venues – include the contemporary art-focused Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM); the FTX Arena (home to the NBA’s Miami HEAT); and the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, which houses an aquarium and a 250-seat planetarium.
Visitors can easily get around Downtown Miami’s compact core using CitiBikes, scooters and the Metromover (a free, air-conditioned elevated train). It winds through Brickell – where the shops at Brickell City Centre and Mary Brickell Village entice – and heads north to attractions such as the waterfront green spaces at Maurice A. Ferré Park and Bayfront Park, and to the shops at Bayside Marketplace, where the nearly 200-foot-high Skyviews Miami Observation Wheel offers panoramic views of Biscayne Bay. Bayside is also a hub for sightseeing bus tours and boat tours, which take passengers through the bay islands, fringed with palatial waterfront homes, many of them celebrity-owned.
Of course, a day of exploration requires fuel, and this neighborhood brims with appetizing options for lunch, happy hour and dinner. Dine at Area 31 on the 16th floor of the Kimpton EPIC Hotel or at La Mar by Gastón Acurio on the terrace of the Mandarin Oriental, Miami on Brickell Key, with spectacular views of Biscayne Bay and the skyline.
