About The Awards

In recent years, Miami has experienced unprecedented growth in the hospitality sector. Supported by some of the world’s leading brands and through the work of their architecture and design partners, they have unleashed the most significant, visionary hospitality built environments in the country.

This inaugural Miami Hospitality Design Awards showcases this tremendous work and the partnership between the two leading organizations that support the hospitality and architecture + design industries; the Greater Miami & Beaches Hotel Association (GMBHA) and the American Institute of Architects Miami Chapter (AIA Miami).

This grand event, hosted at the world-renowned Faena Forum, will recognize the wonderful diversity and excellence of these industries and the ideals and prosperity our community is experiencing, like no other place in the world, through the support of the GMBHA and AIA Miami.
