We attended a home show at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach this past Sunday. I can't say much for the show or the location where it was held. It was built in the mid-1980s, so it's showing its age. It's a typical huge venue with no windows. It has few amenities. The only good thing I can say about... More

There was plenty of parking in the parking garage. Reasonably priced at $5 for day in Ocean Center. Upon arriving you purchase tickets outside the Ocean Center. There is absolutely no outside food or drinks allowed inside. They have a security guard at the door and then security inside to check bags and take tickets.

We went to the Ocean Center today to see the traveling exhibition of Jurassic Quest. This was our first visit to the convention center and have to say that the Ocean Center staff were very friendly and directed us were to go for the event. The center itself is huge and feels very bright and welcoming. The bathrooms and all... More

I have been coming to this event since the early 90's and it seriously never lets me down..Parking everywhere tons of vehicles inside to be seen and still tons of vehicles outside.. I absolutely love this event and I hope it never changes.

Convenient location. Close to a new and revised city area. Parking was not a problem. Can be fun leaving if you go with the masses.

Centrally located to our hotel and easy to get in and out of. Parkin was nearby but there were also many hotels (ours included) so we just walked to the convention center.

Ocean centre can hold multiple conferences together. Loads of open space and light is just enough to make exchange of ideas easier.

Having a Conference Center close to a beach is fantastic. Getting up early and walking the beach, and Daytona Beach is beautiful to walk on, is a great way to start the day before heading to the conference center. Ocean Center was clean, the people working there were kind and helpful, they have an adequate amount of bathrooms and the... More
