Super Bowl LIV will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on February 2, 2020, making it the eleventh Super Bowl hosted in the region. Felipe Angulo, Super Bowl Host Committee Director of Business Connect & Community Outreach comes by the podcast to help us understand the economic and environmental impact that this monumental sporting event has on South Florida and its community.
We talked about the planning involved in accommodating the massive influx of visitors into the region, and how the Super Bowl Host Committee leverages the big game to support environmental sustainability in South Florida, to raise awareness for humanitarian issues, and to support local business owners long after the game has left town.
In this episode, Felipe also sheds light on some of the various community engagement programing that will take place prior to the game. Among these include “Superbowl LIVE” celebration, which is the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee’s free-to-the-public fan fest that offers a highly interactive experience for fans to thoroughly enjoy. Taking place on Biscayne Boulevard in the heart of Downtown Miami, this week-long event will feature a tailgate town, fan activities, musical acts, culinary demos, sponsor activations, dance performances, water shows and special surprises. Superbowl LIVE will take place from Saturday, January 25 – Tuesday, January 28, and again from Thursday, January 30 – Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Bayfront Park in downtown Miami.
