Miami Beach Convention Center
Originally called the Miami Beach Exhibition Hall, the convention center was built in 1957 to seat 15,000 people at one time.
From 1960 until 1971, the center was the site of the Miss Universe pageant. It also hosted a 1961 Billy Graham Crusade and hosted the 1968 Republican National Convention, 1972 Republican National Convention, and the 1972 Democratic National Convention.
In 1989, the facility underwent a $92 million renovation and doubled in size. In the last six years, the facility has had over $35 million in continuing upgrades, including complete renovations of all restrooms, full carpet replacement, and installation of a state-of-the-art telecommunications and networking infrastructure.
Sporting events 
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) held their Annual WrestleMania Fan Axxess event at the complex from March 29, 2012 to April 1, 2012. The event featured many WWE talents and showcased many former WWE events and props used during their TV tapings.
Without an on-campus facility, the University of Miami men's basketball team played many of their games in Miami Beach at both the Convention Center and the Miami Beach Auditorium in the 1960s. Led by popular coach Bruce Hale and the high scoring future basketball Hall-of-Famer Rick Barry, the Hurricanes were able to draw capacity crowds.
