MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 29, 2014) - Creating spaces to meet the needs of next generation business travelers, Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay's recently completed multi-million dollar meeting space renovation is setting the pace for successful events with innovative spaces, state-of-the-art technology and eco-friendly designs.

Maintaining a bold waterfront presence near Miami's Artsand Design Districts, the new look and intuitive service of the downtown Miami hotel's impressive spaces represent the future of travel and set the stage for inspirational gatherings.

According to General Manager David Cesario, Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay's 20,000 square feet of flexible event space, which includes 23 meeting rooms, a 9,860 square foot Grand Ballroom and the 2,500 square foot Bayview Ballroom with incredible bay views, were all involved in the three-month renovation project.

Beyond new floor and wall coverings, lighting and furniture, the newly renovated Miami meeting space also features a state-of-the-art audio/visual system and high-speed wireless Internet. Reflecting the hotel's eco-friendly status as a Palm-1 certified property, old escalators were replaced with new units featuring "Smart Sensor" technology that slows them down to conserve energy when not in use. LED lighting was installed throughout the renovated spaces and elevators were refurbished.

"The new generations of travelers and meeting participants work differently than previous generations, and, as such, we need to introduce spaces that promote collaborative work environments," said Cesario. "Even our foyers have been re-purposed to offer seating for impromptu breakouts as it is not uncommon for meeting attendees to carry over brainstorming and discussions in our Lobby Reinvented, long after the sessions have broken for the day."

In following that theme, the hotel offers event planners room set-up options that include couches, pods, and even beanbag chairs to create a more casual and relaxed vibe for their Miami business meetings.

Renovation at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay ties in with Marriott Hotels' goal to re-imagine traditional meeting spaces to meet a growing demand for more inspiring and creative work environments. Marriott Hotels is re-thinking everything from boardrooms and breakouts to pre-function spaces, taking a holistic approach to meetings and seamlessly integrating service, technology, and contemporary design.
