It's a nice conference center, kinda worn down. It's size appropriate for the EOD Global Conference. This year I chose not to eat the catered food/slop.

If you are in the NW Florida area be sure to check out the activities at the Emerald Coast Convention Center. They have a variety of activities for different tastes and enjoyment and it is a very well maintained facility.

Attended Air Force Anniversary Ball and facility and service were great. 600 meals served while hot and way above the rubber chicken normally associated with formal event so large. Chicken was cooked perfectly and staff was very efficient in feeding so many.

Very nice facility, with nice views. My cousins wedding was here. My only complaint is that finding the elevator was impossible and after we did then there was a very long walk for my mother who can not walk long distances.

Numerous vendors are present to offer their wares or services to you, such as vacation rentals, medical services, other help services, and many other categories. Sample food dips are available, and snacks (for purchase) too - if you don't... More
