We attended a fund raiser there and were impressed with the presentation. They have a lot to offer there for special occasions and snow birds!

Performed there for HispanicFest2015 back in Sept. Employees were nice, the locale clean and more than big enough. Hope we get to use the same facilities next year.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write these kind words. We truly put service before all else at the ECCC and that service includes a perfect room setup in a spotlessly clean space. We are all looking forward to the Hispanic Fest 2016! It's already on the books. Hope to meet you there! Sunny regards, Tisha Maraj,... More

In town for dance competition and all staff were very kind and helpful. Entire property very clean, except they were dealing with some minor sprinkler system leak and had a few garbage cans around in strategic locations. Otherwise, very nice facility. Loved parking underneath to keep the car from sweltering.

They always offer many different things here and it is ALWAYS clean. To include the bathrooms and everything else in the place. The management does a good job of keeping this place clean.

Great location, easy to find. Not far from beach and stores to keep you busy between competitions and awards. Food was a little pricey but that is to be expected. Friendly staff and very roomy.

We saw a Sinfonia concert here. The facility was nice and large enough. However, the sightlines for an orchestra performance were quite poor. I'm six feet tall and still struggled to see well. At an orchestra performance, I generally like to take in the sights and sounds of the entire orchestra, but I could only see the conductor, strings section,... More

Came here with my daughter for a cheerleading competition. Kind of old and rundown. Not a big convention center like you see in New Orleans, Nashville or Atlanta. Parking is kind of a pain because of all the people and the small size of the venue

Hi Minh, I hope you enjoyed the cheer competition here at the ECCC. The Emerald Coast has so many wonderful things to do. I hope you took advantage of the beach, attractions, and amazing restaurants.

A local festival there will be a treat .To name a few, Hispanic festival and Greek festival. These are very good, food, cultural knowledge, and being with people having fun is good for the soul. Wish it could be less expensive so many other local groups could be there.

Dear Virginia, Thank you for recognizing how enjoyable our local events can be when held here. We truly enjoy having them here and adore working with these groups.
