Los Angeles-based hospitality company, sbe, has opened their second property in Miami, SLS Brickell. The property is the first project that Related Group and sbe have partnered for.

“sbe is proud to unveil our first SLS Hotel & Residences with Related and look forward to the addition of sister property, SLS LUX Brickell and expanding our South Florida portfolio further together with Hyde Midtown and Hyde Beach House,” says sbe founder and CEO, Sam Nazarian. “SLS has created a new paradigm in the luxury hotel experience that resonates with a global audience. SLS Brickell epitomizes what we stand for; an uncompromising, yet modern approach to luxury, infused with playfulness, spirit, creativity and world-class cuisine and design.”

The 55-story tower features 124 hotel rooms and 450 condos alongside South Miami Avenue. Located within walking distance of downtown Miami, SLS Brickell is steps away from fine dining, shopping and entertainment. The property offers culinary options from two James Beard Award-winning chefs, 24-hour lifestyle amenities that include concierge services, valet parking, in-room dining, babysitting services, and a BMW-7 series house car that can transport guests within a three-mile radius. Additionally, they offer a fitness center, Ciel spa, a private screening and party room and The Sky Roof which features a pool with city views. Guests and residents can also access the 10,000 square feet of ballroom and business spaces.

SLS Brickell residents are entered into the SLS Resident Membership program, which earns them access to SLS South Beach, Hyde Beach, Hyde American Airlines Arena and preferred searing at all sbe Miami restaurants. Members also receive a ten percent savings on food, beverages and Ciel spa packages.

As with most facets of the meetings and events industry, the art of managing an event budget is a true balancing act. And while it’s easy to get wrapped up in the nitty-gritty, Eventbrite revealed a pleasant surprise in its 2018 Pulse Report (which surveyed 1,200 planners), finding that event budgets overall appear to be on the rise. But where exactly are those budget dollars going these days and how can planners best spend to craft memorable moments?
