The Leadership

Beginning his 25th year with Miami Open presented by Itaú and his 15th at the helm of Miami Open as Executive VP, Adam Barrett’s leadership has helped transform the organization and redefine its corporate identity into a customer service and sales driven company that holds an elite spot in the entertainment world.
Under Barrett’s direction, Miami Open has been recognized as a leader in fan entertainment, customer service, sales and marketing globally. Exceeding guest expectations and creating an exciting experience is the cornerstone of the company values which have been instilled through Barrett’s tenure.
Barrett’s primary responsibility consists of directing and overseeing all aspects of the organization from Finance, Merchandising, Human Resources, Community Affairs, Travel, Marketing, Sales and Player Services. His efforts have created an atmosphere for both the employees and customers that is loyal, professional and personal
Barrett also shows his commitment to South Florida as he continually works successfully with Miami-Dade County public officials to keep Miami Open in Miami and a leader in the sport of tennis. The result of his diligence is an innovative public-private partnership at the International Tennis Center of Crandon Park which fans enjoy year round and the home of Miami Open.
Most recently, Barrett established a social media platform to capitalize on the popularity of this medium that motivates and activates fans directly. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the first Mobile Application for the tournament have increased the fan base tenfold and customer loyalty has been catapulted to its highest level since the inception of the event in 1985.
Barrett steadily climbed the ranks after first joining Miami Open in 1991 as Finance Director and duly named Tournament director and Executive Vice President in 2002. He is actively involved in the both men’s and women’s tour boards and a member of many organizations that promote the sport of tennis globally.
Barrett is a graduate of University of Florida. He lives in Weston with his wife, Rachel and their children Matthew, Zoe and Chase. They generously spend their time and resources to assist the community, donating time to several charitable organizations.

“Adam Barrett continually works with Miami-Dade County officials to keep the Miami Open in Miami and a leader in the sport of tennis.”

History
With over $12 million in prize money, the Miami Open presented by Itaú is one of the largest tournaments in the world. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Miami Open. The Miami Open, considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis, has been awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP in nine of the last 13 years. In 2004, the event was also named “Tournament of the Year” by the WTA. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG. The 2015 tournament surpassed 300,000 in total attendance for the sixth consecutive year, all the while displaying to the world why the event is regarded as the most glamorous on the WTA and ATP World Tours.

The FAQs

I want to purchase tickets to watch my favorite player play…when is he or she scheduled? The Miami Open is a single-elimination tennis tournament. Due to this fact, the draw for each day will not be announced until the night before around 7 pm EST and will be posted online at www.MiamiOpen.com. Other options would include checking local news outlets such as The Miami Herald newspaper. Depending on when you place your order, Stadium Court tickets may or may not be available. If the Stadium Court is sold out, grounds passes will be made available. Please note that a grounds pass does not provide access to watch matches taking place inside Stadium Court.
Do you offer seats in the shade or out of the sun? Because we are an outdoor event and have no roof on our Stadium Court, the sun will be a factor. The best option we can offer if sun is a factor is to provide you seats with the sun behind your back. These seats are located on the South Baseline (Gates F-G), Southwest Angle (Gates G-H), West Sideline (Gates H-A) and Northwest Angle (Gates A-B).

I would like to order tickets for today’s matches…how can I do that? We do not accept phone orders for same day sales…Tickets may be purchased online until 8:00am for Day Sessions and until 4:00pm for Evening Sessions. Otherwise tickets can be purchased in person at the Front Gate Box Office the day of play.

I have tickets waiting for me at Will Call…where should I park to pick up the tickets? You should park in your assigned parking area first and then proceed to Will Call (located at the Main Gate entrance). If your order includes a parking pass, you may park your car in the 15-minute parking area at Lot 6 (North Gate entrance) and proceed to Will Call to pick up your tickets/parking pass. You will then need to park your vehicle in the assigned parking lot (typically Crandon Park Lot 2 or 3). Vehicles left in the 15-minute parking area longer than the allotted time will be towed at the owner’s expense. The General Parking area is located directly across the street from the Miami Seaquarium and is $15 per vehicle. Once parked, you will then board a shuttle and be taken to the site.

I would like to come to the site and purchase advance tickets during the tournament…where can I do this? All you have to do is proceed across the Rickenbacker Causeway and follow signs to Lot 6 (North Gate entrance), which is located before the Front Gate entrance. Once you find it, turn right into the complex and you will be directed by an attendant to the 15-minute on-site parking zone. Once you are parked, you will then proceed to the Front Gate Box Office where you can make your purchase.
