VP of the Greater Miami Conventions & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) Rolando Aedo and Chairman of the Board of the Greater Miami and the Beaches Hotel Association (GMBHA) Raj Singh comment on the upcoming Resort Tax vote. The proposed tax, part of the upcoming August 14th Special Election, looks to increase the Miami Beach visitor (resort) tax by 1% to fund expansion of the Miami Beach Convention Center. 

Paid for only by visitors, this tax does not affect residents.  Currently at 3%, the resort tax would increase to roughly 4% and increase Miami Beach’s total hotel tax to 14%, still keeping below other major cities such as Boston and New York. 

Rolando and Raj explain what Convention Center renovations will mean for Miami Beach's tourism future, and why it is vital for residents to get out and VOTE on or before August 14th!
