Top Reasons to Meet in Daytona Beach

New properties. New experiences. New expectations.

Daytona Beach offers a five-star meeting experience. Attendees can sink their toes in the sand along 23 miles of white-sand beaches, experience high-speed thrills at Daytona International Speedway, explore a rich tapestry of iconic cultural and historical treasures and, of course, delight their palates with an eclectic local dining scene. With over 12,000 guest rooms at a variety of quality hotels and resorts, the Daytona Beach area offers planners a wide range of places to stay — from large convention hotels to luxury resorts, and full-service national brands to upscale independent properties.

Daytona Beach Meeting Space

Cutting-edge meeting rooms

With over 200,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, the world-class Ocean Center convention complex is located just 400 feet from the white-sand beach and Atlantic Ocean. With up to 60,000 square feet of meeting space in hotels, on and off the beach, and flexible and creative meeting space at unique venues, including 120,000 square feet at Daytona International Speedway, there’s a space and a place for your group — large and small — in Daytona Beach. Enjoy a performance at Peabody Auditorium. Kick back at an outdoor concert at the historic oceanfront Bandshell amphitheater or hold an exclusive outdoor event on the field at historic Jackie Robinson Ballpark. Tap into ONE DAYTONA, directly across from the Speedway, with on-site and nearby hotels and a walkable dining and entertainment district with exclusive retail and an appetizing collection of dining options.

Daytona Beach International Speedway

Grow your attendance by embracing new experiences

Picture your group going at top speeds around Daytona International Speedway behind the wheel of a race car with NASCAR Racing Experience. Climb the 203 steps to the top of Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, Florida’s tallest, for spectacular 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean. Go off-shore for exciting deep-sea fishing or relax on a sunset cruise along the inland waterway. See manatee and dolphin during an eco-boat tour or a guided kayak or standup paddling experience.

Daytona Beach Easy Access
