Super Bowl LIV touches down in Miami in February 2020. Before the festivities kick off, guests at the September Trustee Luncheon got a sneak peek of what Super Bowl week in Miami will bring. This will be the 11th Super Bowl, record-breaking – a testament, said Miami Dolphins’ Nat Moore, to the investments made to improve the stadium and the community which has embraced the NFL time after time.

With 10,000 more hotel rooms since the last Miami Super Bowl 10 years ago, along with new airport and seaport, “Miami's a brand-new destination” says William Talbert. The Super Bowl will bring in $500M for business in the area and give South Florida $150M in free advertising, according to Miami Super Bowl Host Committee Rodney Barreto. Super Bowl Live will be hosted in Bayfront Park and serve as a hub of free activities from concerts to NFL exhibits, bringing visitors a unique South Florida experience.

State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle joined the panel discussion to shed light on human trafficking; Florida ranks third in the nation for human trafficking. With the Super Bowl bringing in over 100,000 people, “it’s an opportunity to showcase how Miami has handled combating human trafficking,” Said Rundle. The Miami Super Bowl Host Committee has partnered with The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade – along with Rundle - for the official Stop Sex Trafficking Campaign. The campaign will work with local partners to develop enhanced capabilities to combat trafficking and create paths to recovery and opportunity for all victims.
Other Super Bowl Committee initiatives include Ocean to Everglades, which will focus on solutions to the critical issues facing the health of the ocean and the Everglades, and the Business Connect Program which aims to provide diverse, qualified and certified South Florida area businesses opportunities to compete for special event related contracts connected to the Super Bowl in Miami.
