"It might be possible to find a worse location for a major convention center than the one in Miami Beach; however, it would require considerable research. A location in the City of Miami near I-95, near the metro mover and near the metro rail would be much more successful."
"In particular if Miami-Dade County is going to participate in the financing, any site on the mainland is better than anywhere in Miami Beach. With regard to the architectural design there will always be differing opinions; however, finding a location depends more on specific criteria than does ones opinion on what is a good building design."—CEC [Miami Beach Convention Center Plans Revealed, Ugh...
