It’s been a couple of years since we’ve been able to gather together as a community – and there is no better place to revive our planning juices than ever dynamic, ever vibrant Miami!
This cultural melting pot offers a veritable laboratory to explore the future of Florida and our country. There are, of course, the high-profile planning issues such as sea level rise, traffic congestion, and increasingly unattainable housing. But there are also important efforts to address longstanding racial, ethnic, and economic disparities that are a microcosm of much of the nation. The complex, multifaceted nature of our region urges us daily to approach planning from different viewpoints before coming back together in a comprehensive pathway forward.
So sure, Miami has beaches, tourists, sun, and fun and we hope you enjoy all of it – but we are much more than that. We are keen to show off our region. And our planners are excited to share their diverse stories, so timely in these uncertain times. Inspiring keynote speakers, a robust program of breakout sessions, wide-ranging mobile workshops, and exciting evening activities will captivate you and give you a taste of what South Florida has to offer.
Join us as we Savor Diversity in the Gateway to the Americas! ¡Bienvenidos a Miami!
