MIAMI, January 26, 2024 – duPont REGISTRY Group (DRG) is excited to announce it is joining the Miami Design District as part of the ownership of the Miami Concours, a three-day exhibition of the most significant luxury cars shown in one of the world’s most exclusive neighborhoods. Led by the Co-Founders of The Concours Group and Miami Design District, the Miami Concours has created a new breed of automotive show at the intersection of design, automotive excellence, and luxury lifestyle.
This alliance with duPont REGISTRY Group precedes the Miami Concours’ seventh show in the Design District, titled “Design Driven: The Intersection of Auto, Art and Fashion,” which runs from February 16-18, 2024.
The Miami Design District has grown into one of the most lauded neighborhoods in the United States, combining luxury retail, art galleries, museums, design stores, and restaurants, all within an architecturally rich context. It is home to more than 200 luxury brands’ flagship stores, including Bulgari, Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Balenciaga; more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other neighborhood in the city, and two internationally significant museums, the ICA Miami and the de la Cruz Collection. The Miami Design District was founded by Craig Robins and is owned by Robins’ company, Dacra in partnership with L Catterton and Brookfield Properties.
“We are excited to join forces with duPont REGISTRY, which has been an essential presence in the lives of luxury car lovers for almost four decades,” says Robins. “And the Miami Concours is an incredible platform for presenting some of the most coveted rarities in automobile history. Each year, this weekend unites the community and devout car enthusiasts worldwide to appreciate remarkable craftsmanship. I can’t imagine a more fitting destination than the Miami Design District to host this spectacular weekend.”
