Businesses Get Ready for the Art Basel Rush!

Local South Florida businesses have been in full force preparation mode for the annual invasion of Art Week, including hotels, eateries, and retail outlets, as Art Basel Miami Beach is becoming an essential business tool for developers and businesses in South Florida.

Art week serves as a useful and smart deadline for local businesses since it brings swarms of visitors, who will be paying top rates for lodging, will be packing restaurants, and may be shopping for more than art.

The businesses that are especially preparing for Art Basel are the ones located in South Beach, around the main Art Basel Miami Beach fair at the Miami Beach Convention Center, though satellite fairs have also spread to Wynwood, Midtown, Downtown, mid-beach and North Beach. In addition to the main art fair activity,  museums, galleries, private collections and public spaces as far from Miami as Palm Beach County are all participating in Art Week as well.

During this week, more than 1,000 galleries and other exhibitors from all around world come to South Florida. In 2013, about 75,000 people attended the main fair and 1,800 journalists that were local and international, were credentialed.

The expansion of Art Week is hinting at the spending power of the world’s largest art event, which has increased dramatically in volume and importance since its debut in 2002. The week of events has definitely given life to a period of low tourist activity, driving hotel rates up and giving business to everything from local party planners to caters and valet parking companies.

As local businesses prepare for all of the extra activity that Art Basel will bring, it is clear that South Florida’s traffic will be experiencing some major changes this week.
