The 2009 Miami Boat Show and the Coconut Grove Art Fair preliminary analysis!

The Miami boat show and Coconut Grove Art Fair Miami events are over and out and it is now time to analyze their success and see how they fared as compared to the way the Miami city guide normally describes them. It is too soon to draw an accurate analysis of the Miami events but a few trends emerged and are worth noting.

2009 Coconut Grove Art Fair

Judging by the amount of people walking the streets, this major Miami event was well attended. Attendance was high with more than 150,000 visitors. The results, as far as the amount of business conducted, is a totally different story. The crisis is definitely here and the drastic decrease in Miami events sales serves as proof.

2009 Miami Boat Show

Attendance was definitely down compared to last year’s show. Plenty of locals attended the Miami events show but international visitors were scarce. According to the Miami city guide, people normally come from far and wide to the Miami Boat Show. Miami Beach hotels did not get booked to full capacity as they normally do. The Miami city guide has noted that in past years, hotels in Miami were at full occupancy at full rate prices. We are in a crisis and it shows. People are just not in the mood. On average, the Miami Boat show Miami event attracts around 140,000 visitors per year. This year’s final count will surely show lower numbers. Travel agencies booking the Miami events boat show indicated that business went down 30% as compared to last year. However, sales will not be as weak as once thought before the Miami event took place. It seems that there was some action in the smaller segment of the market and the super luxury yacht segment. Aside from that, everything else buyers could not resist the Miami events incredible deals offered.

Due to the economic struggle that industries are currently facing, Miami restaurants are slashing prices in order to lure customers. Miami Spice, a month-long event where top Miami restaurants offer discounted meals, normally takes place in the summer because it is considered the slow season.

Now, the new Winter Miami Spice by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau has come into effect and will run from January 12th to February 12th. Over 30 Miami restaurants will participate in Winter Miami Spice and offer a fixed menu for lunch for $23 and dinner for $36. For more information on Winter Miami Spice, visit ilovemiamispice.com.

2010 Pro Bowl in Miami, Miami Events

The 2010 Pro Bowl will be played on January 31st while the 2010 Super Bowl will be held one week later on February 7th. In recent years, the NFL has discussed having the Pro Bowl game and the Super Bowl played in the same city.

Miami was named the place for the 2010 Super Bowl three years ago for the 10th time. Months ago, the discussion about whether or not to bring the Pro Bowl to Miami in 2010 began.

The Pro Bowl has been held in Honolulu since 1980. Before that, the game site rotated annually and came to Miami in 1975.

The NFL has not yet announced the move of the Pro Bowl from Honolulu to Miami for 2010, but Hawaii’s governor and Honolulu’s mayor both confirmed the rumors. It is quite possible that after 2010 the Pro Bowl site will rotate between different destinations.

Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle said, “While I am disappointed the Pro Bowl likely will not be played in Hawaii in 2010, I respect the NFL’s decision to play the post season all-star game in the same city as the Super Bowl, one week before the Super Bowl, on a one-year test basis.” She hopes to make a deal before the 2011 game for the game to return to Honolulu even if only every two or three years. The Pro Bowl is very important to Hawaii because it generates about $30.5 million in visitor spending and taxes.

Those who might want to attend the Pro Bowl in Miami, should keep in mind accommodations might get pack really quick. Therefore, it is highly advised to book Miami hotel’s  rooms, Miami holiday rentals, or Miami Beach vacation rentals as soon as the news is confirmed.

Florida’s Turnpike

The Florida Turnpike, originally known as the Sunshine State Parkway, is a toll road that runs approximately 312 miles (497 km) down the Florida peninsula through 11 counties, from US 1 in Florida City to Interstate 75 at Wildwood. It parallels I-95 through West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, often literally right next to it, separated by a wall. The Turnpikes mainline goes from Miami to I-75 north of Orlando.

The Turnpike is a primary evacuation route. Tolls on the turnpike cost an average of 7.5 cents per mile for two-axle vehicles but the state may suspend tolls on the Turnpike (as well as other roads in the system) during an emergency evacuation.

I-95 Express Florida

New I-95 Express lanes and Bus Rapid Transit service are being introduced in the hopes to reduce traffic on I-95 from I-395 in Downtown Miami to Broward Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes will be separated from regular traffic lanes and drivers can choose to use them when they feel their time is more valuable than a toll price. Toll prices will fluctuate so keep an eye on overhead signage.

The goal is to keep traffic moving at a speed of approximately 50 miles per hour, while offering transit riders a seamless connection between Miami-Dade and Broward Counties on 95 Express buses. Even drivers not using 95 Express are expected to see improved traffic conditions in the general purpose lanes. Vehicles can use 95 Express by paying a toll with SunPass. The amount will be clearly posted on overhead signs. Adjusting to these new express lanes can be confusing and stressful, so I have added some tips below in order to help you get familiarized.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOu0R-DP6qQ]

Special restrictions and exceptions:

Vehicles that can use the express lanes without paying a toll:

  • Emergency vehicles
  • Registered vanpools
  • Registered carpools of 3 or more passengers
  • Registered hybrid vehicles
  • Several different types of buses
  • Motorcycles

Restricted vehicles:

  • Trucks will not be allowed to use the express lanes

Express lane tips:

  • Once you enter the new Express Lanes
    • You cannot exit until the end
    • You cannot cut through the lane markers to break out before Golden Glades.
  • If you find yourself in the Express Lanes by accident, continue onto the Golden Glades Interchange.
  • Drivers weaving in and out of the Express Lanes could cause accidents and will be subject to fines and incur points on their licenses.
  • Be alert and pay attention to all advisories, signage, pavement markings and posted speed limits.
  • Tolling on the Express Lanes will begin soon.
  • If you are involved in an accident or experience a car breakdown in the Express Lanes, pull to the left shoulder if you are able and dial *FHP (*347) on your cellphone. Wait in your vehicle with the doors locked. Do not stand behind your car or next to the lane of moving traffic.

For more information about the purpose of the new 95 Express program and how it works call 1-877-95X-FDOT or 1-877-959 -3368.
