Let attendees live in the moment
Everyone knows Daytona Beach as one of Florida's most popular beach destinations. But Daytona Beach also embodies a spirit that allows visitors to get the most from their experience, to seize the day, and better yet — seize the Daytona. For planners and their attendees, this means offering a meeting destination that helps them work smarter, think further outside the box, make better connections, build stronger teams, and close more deals.
Beyond providing an inspirational setting, Daytona Beach offers great value, with more than 12,000 hotel rooms from brands like Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, and Wyndham, as well as the newly expanded, 190,000-squarefoot Ocean Center. Travel costs are also minimized with easy air access at Daytona Beach International Airport, and planners can take advantage of special promotions and incentives from the destination for even more value.
When it's time to play, diversions are plentiful. Attendees can enjoy beachside recreational activities, championship golf, tennis, and boutique shopping. And an eclectic array of dining choices — many overlooking the waterfront — along with Daytona's lively nightlife scene provide plenty of options for attendees to network and unwind after a day of meetings.
