The Greater Fort Lauderdale | Broward County Convention Center is undergoing a $1 billion expansion project. The transformed venue will feature 350,000 contiguous square feet of exhibit space and a new 65,000 square foot waterfront ballroom, plus original dining concepts, enhanced water-taxi access and a new, iconic waterfront plaza available to the public. The project is expected to be completed by May 2023. 
“We are excited about the addition of our waterfront plaza which will offer unique food and beverage venues, an outdoor amphitheater, and private areas for groups,” says Ed Simon, Executive Vice President of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Best of all, this entire complex is just minutes from our airport, our central entertainment district, our beaches, and so much more. Our city’s compact footprint makes it quick, easy, and cost-effective to fit any of our numerous recreational, educational, and entertainment offerings into a group’s meeting agenda.”
