The Miami Performing Arts Center Foundation Engages The Americas Group

We are proud to announce that we have been engaged by The Miami Performing Arts Center Foundation (MPAC) (www.miamipac.com) to provide assistance in designing membership and development opportunities in South America, Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean.  The Miami Performing Arts Center is the most important public/private sector initiative in the history of Miami-Dade County. The $400 million dollar facility designed by world-renowned architect Cesar Pelli will be one of the largest and most sophisticated in the United States created for the finest presentation of ballet, opera, theater and symphonic music.

The new arts complex is emblematic of Miami-Dade’s commitment to developing a world-class cultural facility equal to the finest found anywhere in the world. Located in mid-Miami it will be a major attraction and destination point for residents and visitors. The complex will include a 2,400-seat Ballet Opera House, the 2,200-seat Symphony Hall and a 200-seat black-box Studio Theater. It will be the performance home of four internationally acclaimed Resident Companies. It will also be a principal community venue for a wide variety of classical and popular entertainment, educational programming, international events and special events. 

 

We are pleased to assist MPAC with their development and marketing activities in the Americas. This is the latest step in the evolution of Miami becoming one of the most important international lifestyle centers for business, trade, finance, tourism sports and entertainment.   Whether you live in Miami full-time or part time or just visiting for business or pleasure we hope you will decide to become involved in MPAC. It will be a rewarding way to have a special sense of community and to network with Miami’s establishment. It will also give you benefits when you want to attend an event. By acting now you will be able to get “one-time in the life of a project” recognition on the wall of the new facility. The opening is planned for October 2006.

 

The Americas Group looks forward to introducing you to this very exciting project and opportunity. Please give us a call or e-mail us if you want to find out more about The Miami Performing Arts Center.
