Greater Fort Lauderdale, considered to be the Venice of America, is a sophisticated playground with a delectable combination of sun, sand, and chic. The newly expanded Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center is less than one mile from Florida's Blue Wave beaches and two miles from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. Water taxis link the Convention Center to numerous hotels, dining spots, and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
