Pocket-friendly publication produced by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) and HCP Media is a great resource for convention attendees, delegates and visitors on the go in Greater Miami and the Beaches.

MIAMI, October 9, 2017 – As part of the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau’s mission to cater to visitors during their visit to Greater Miami and the Beaches, the 2017/2018 Greater Miami & the Beaches Pocket Guide was created to showcase Greater Miami’s diverse multicultural neighborhoods, unique attractions, restaurants, amenities and services in a format that appeals to convention attendees, delegates and busy visitors on the go.

Featuring the brand-new Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science on the cover, the 2017/2018Greater Miami & the Beaches Pocket Guide is a convenient, portable and informative guide that serves as an abridged version of the Vacation Planner/Travel Planner/Visitors Guide. Similar to its companion publication, the Pocket Guide now includes a special section dedicated to Greater Miami’s neighborhoods. It also includes a brand new advertiser-driven section highlighting Greater Miami’s flourishing and diverse craft beer scene.

The 2017/2018 Greater Miami & the Beaches Pocket Guide is one of our more sought-after publications,” says William D. Talbert, III, CDME, President & CEO of the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Our goal was to create the best resource for our guests, especially convention delegates and attendees. We considered the unique needs of visitors who have a short time in our community and may need a quick reference guide to go back to during their time here; whether that time is a week-long event, an overnight stay or just an hour-long lunch break between convention meetings.”
