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.

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. During the height of the cheer competition, when all of the teams and their families are inside the convention center, it may seem very crowded... More

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. With regard to our pricing, we have not seen a price increase to our room rental since 2004. Our venue offers professional event services, in house Audio Visual equipment, well maintained staging,...

We attended a conference here, it is adequate and nice, not overly impressive, but enough for our area.

Over the years I've attended many work functions. There is no other venue in the area like this. I was thrilled to attend the Greek Festival over Labor Day weekend without braving the 90+ degree heat and humidity as most festivals in this area require. I enjoy the outdoor area even though I'm not a smoker. An annual work conference... More

Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for enjoying the ECCC. We truly love making everyone feel welcome here while attending events. The outside area is very welcoming and comfortable now with the new picnic tables. Hope to see you at the Greek Festival again in 2015!

I've attended a number of events at the EC Conference Center over the past decade, and my overall impression is that the venue is excellent for the size of the community, and the center is well-run. This past week my family and I attended The All Sports Association banquet. Our overall impression was very positive, and we look forward to... More
