Hold Your Meetings at the Orange County Convention Center
Yes, the award-winning Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) is conveniently located in the middle of everything your attendees want to see and do in Orlando, but that’s just the start of what this state-of-the-art, constantly improving facility has to offer.
As meeting planners from around the world have come to know and appreciate, the OCCC is the industry leader in terms of flexibility, functionality and service. Thanks to more than 2.1 million square feet of exhibition space and 480,000 square feet of function space, meeting professionals appreciate the Center for its flexibility and functionality.
With so much configurable space, the green-friendly complex — comprised of two separate buildings connected by a 1,500-foot, open-air bridge with moving sidewalks across International Drive (aka I-Drive) — can make events of all sizes feel at home. The OCCC has also earned the Global Biorisk Advisory Council’s (GBAC) Star Accreditation, which provides third-party validation to ensure the implementation of rigorous sanitation protocols and is recognized as the gold standard of safe venues, which means you can meet there with confidence.
