Smart Spaces Bring Evolutionary Expansion to Orange County Convention Center

Just because Orlando has been ranked Cvent’s No. 1 meeting destination in the U.S for six straight years, it doesn’t mean we’re ready to rest on our laurels. Want proof? Look no further than the state-of-the-art Orange County Convention Center (OCCC).

As part of an ongoing, $605-million campus-improvement plan to bring significant expansion to the North and South concourses, the OCCC is introducing new meeting and exhibition space designed to give you more flexibility, more choices and added conveniences. Two of those additions — the Destination Lounge and Wellness Rooms — are already open, and we have details on how they can enhance your next convention or event in Orlando!


Destination Lounge at Orange County Convention Center

Located in the Orange County Convention Center’s South Concourse, room S222, the Destination Lounge is a next-gen networking venue with HD video walls, LED display systems and best-in-class lighting that can support your corporate branding and displays. Boasting 7,000 square feet of multi-functional space, it’s a contemporary, sophisticated headquarters for smaller groups’ meetings, private functions and receptions.

The Destination Lounge also understands your need to stay connected. Accordingly, it offers technologically enhanced spaces with open views where your attendees can sit comfortably, making it perfect for your next reception or presentation. Put it to the test the next time you meet in Orlando!

Wellness Rooms at Orange County Convention Center

As part of its ongoing improvements program, the Orange County Convention Center is converting the campus’ underutilized spaces into all-new Wellness Rooms. These dedicated locations can be used for nursing and pumping, but they’re also ideal for meditation, prayer and personal medical needs.

“Over the last several years, we have seen an increase in requests for a private space attendees can use for various wellness reasons, including prayer and nursing,” says Yulita Osuba, OCCC deputy director. “Recognizing the needs of our guests, we’re pleased to … offer a permanent, well-appointed area for them to call their own. Guest comfort is a high priority here at the Center of Hospitality, and these new rooms help us extend that mission.”

All Wellness Rooms include a chair and table to ensure comfort when guests are taking advantage of the space. Each room also features a lock that notifies others when it’s occupied, ensuring guest privacy.

To date, three Wellness Rooms have been completed, including one each in the West, South and North concourses. Once complete, the OCCC will have six total rooms, with three more coming to the West concourse in the near future.

The Destination Lounge and Wellness Rooms are just part of the way the Orange County Convention Center is constantly evolving to better meet and exceed meeting professionals’ needs. To learn more, submit your RFP, and subscribe to our newsletter for more meeting-focused updates from Visit Orlando.
