Ocean Center awarded Readers’ Choice award from ConventionSouth magazine

The Ocean Center in Daytona Beach has again received the Readers’ Choice award from ConventionSouth, a national, multimedia resource for planning events in the South. This is the ninth year that the county-run convention center has received the award.

Meeting professionals were asked to name the meeting sites they believe display exemplary service for group events. Nominations were received throughout the year, and the top picks were selected via online voting from more than 7,000 voters. Over 2,500 convention and visitor bureaus, hotels and event facilities were nominated and 337 winners were chosen. Of the winners, only 46 winners were based from the state of Florida.

“ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Ocean Center Convention Entertainment Complex has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Senior Editor Marcia Bradford. “The value in receiving this prestigious recognition is that it comes from the United States’ top meeting professionals who hold events in the South. These planners demand the highest level of customer service and quality facilities, and they have contributed in determining that Ocean Center Convention Entertainment Complex indeed displays the commitment to professionalism, creativity and service that they require.”
