Canada looks to retain its number one status with Miami

Friday, March 1, 2019

TORONTO — The final numbers won’t be in until May but Suzie Sponder, Senior Director of Communications, U.S. & Canada for the Greater Miami CVB, says she’s confident that the 2018 Canadian visitor stats to the city will be strong.

“Canada has consistently been our number one international market and I don’t anticipate that changing,” said Sponder last night at Miami’s annual Toronto media reception, taking place high above the sparkling city lights on the 36th floor of the TD Tower, at Stratus.

PortMiami is the cruise capital of the world and the city also boasts more airlines flying into its airport than any other city in the U.S. Miami is also a main stop for the Brightline train, connecting Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach since May 2018. In November 2018 the Virgin Group took over the rail line as part of Virgin Trains USA and announced plans to rebrand Brightline sometime this year.

Most Canadians have one thing on their minds when they plan a Miami vacation: sun. But at some point, jokes Sponder, “you’re going to get sunburned and you’ll want to come indoors.”

Miami is famous for its Art Basel art show, at Miami Beach, as well as for its golf, its Art Deco architecture and its thriving neighbourhoods, from Little Havana and Little Haiti to the Design District. Art fans will also want to check out Miami’s Wynwood district, with the best and largest collection of mural art in the world.
