HI-TEC - Hotel and Travel Information

HOTEL / SHUTTLE / PARKING

We hope you will make plans to attend the July 23-27 annual HI-TEC conference at the InterContinental Miami (Florida). At InterContinental Miami, the city's vibrant art, innovative businesses, and tropical life converge into the premier luxury experience. Built around Henry Moore's famous sculpture, "The Spindle," this Miami hotel lies on the downtown waterfront and is just 15 minutes from the Miami International Airport. The city's business centers and famous beachfronts are both within easy reach. This hotel holds commanding views of the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay, and the Port of Miami. 

Miami is one of the state's – and the world’s – most popular vacation spots. Though destinations often are said to offer something for everyone, the Miami area offers multiple activities for everyone: The trendy nightlife of South Beach, bejeweled by the eye candy of the Art Deco district. The bustle of Calle Ocho and the highly caffeinated energy of Little Havana. The plush hotels of Miami Beach and the historic hideaways of Coral Gables. Seemingly endless shopping opportunities in modern, sprawling malls and the quiet, personal attention offered by the family-owned shops of Coconut Grove and many other corners of the region. The lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis. Miami's major league football, basketball, hockey and baseball. Boat shows and auto racing. Art festivals and outdoor food extravaganzas. An international airport and the world’s busiest cruise port. The Miami area offers all of this – and so much more.
