Visiting convention attendees will feel excitement in the air at WEC – Ocala, whether their event is hosted in the Grand Arena or one of the other multi-purpose spaces among the property. Within the property are two exposition centers, each with 132,300 square feet of contiguous and column-free event space. Used separately or combined – for a serious sprawl of floorspace — they allow for nearly any event configuration.
World Equestrian Center – Ocala’s exposition centers provide state-of-the-art and flexible trade show possibilities for an almost limitless variety of industries: automotive, consumer, pop culture and more. Each exposition center can accommodate numerous exhibit configurations and offers extensive indoor space access via dedicated dock slips and multiple 16-and 20-foot freight doors. Additional conveniences include up to 50’-high ceilings, on-site parking, 32 restrooms per building, built-in concession stands, a full menu of audiovisual services, high-speed Wi-Fi, a full-time security staff, programmable LED lighting, and oversized LED walls with streaming capabilities.
The WEC Grand Arena sets the scale as the centerpiece of large-scale shows, and can be used for signature events and entertainment, accommodating everything from keynote speakers to al fresco luxury dinners under a sun that sets behind the property’s rolling green fields. The open-air WEC Stadium can serve as a venue for concerts and keynotes. Meeting and event professionals can also make use of various fields for outdoor events and receptions including an oak canopy garden.
