GMBHA Team at Art Basel

Last week has been an exciting one for Miami. The 13th annual Art Basel Miami Beach was held at the Miami Beach Convention Center, alongside satellite art fairs spread throughout Miami area. The city was jam packed with art aficionados and our hotels were booked solid. My team and I had a wonderful time visiting fairs, including Design Miami, Art Miami, SCOPE and Art Basel Miami Beach, as well as attending events at our member hotels.

We can’t wait for next year!
