My husband and I went to a home and garden show held here. The facility itself was very nice. I am not for sure the month but it was in the year 2016. I especially liked the homemade jellies and garden art for public purchase, and I enjoyed the humane society booth. We signed our name for a prize give... More

I was here for the Trailer Show and was impressed by the inside of the building which is huge with room for dozens and dozens of motor homes, small trailers, large trailers and more. There are frequent shows of all kinds here and a bonus is that the parking lot is huge as well and after the show you can... More

A nice deviation from the traditional location for a conference and exhibition. The prepared food for the events are consistently delicious. The serving staff is polite and friendly!

I attended a small conference here. It is well maintained with comfortable meeting rooms and very helpful staff. There are large areas for vendors and displays. It is across the street from the beach and Oceanwalk. There are a couple food vendors, but there are many restaurants closeby. Parking was reasonable.

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
