The Miami Beach City Commission has approved Global Spectrum as the new operator of the Miami Beach Convention Center. Global Spectrum, a public assembly facility management firm, is a subsidiary of entertainment and sports firm Comcast-Spectator, which is based in Philadelphia. The firm plans to bring international shows to the million-square-foot convention center through an alliance with the European-based Messe Schweiz company. Global Spectrum already operates two other facilities in South Florida, including the Palm Beach Convention Center in West Palm Beach and the BankUnited Center on the campus of University of Miami in Coral Gables.
