With it s beautiful beaches, vibrant culture and acclaimed nightlife, it is no wonder Miami has become the preferred travel destination of more than 12 million people on an annual basis.

The Miami Takeover aimed to provide its participants the opportunity to see South Beach through the clear vision of a South Beach native/promoter instead of through the blurred sight of a first-time visitor. Now in its seventh year, The Miami Takeover has increased its registration and event sponsorship by 300%, since it s inception, while establishing itself as the preferred vehicle of the DC Metro area for a South Beach Getaway. This premiere event has created such a buzz that it has now attracted participants in the Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Delaware, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and New York areas.
