“Nice Wedding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

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.

“A fun time to attend the EXPO exhibition in February”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

The EXPO exhibition is a fun-filled morning experience, especially if you are a visiting snowbird, which is the focus of EXPO.

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 mind standing in line for a long time - and you can even have your blood pressure and glucose levels checked by nurses if you wish.

Many of the vendor offer you free tickets for prize drawings which are announced frequently over a public-address system in the 30,000 sq. ft. exhibition floor.

There are chairs available to rest your weary bones on after you need a break from all the aisle walking.

Our only complaint was that the underground handicapped parking spaces did not seem to offer a nearby elevator to access the exhibition floor above (unless we missed it) and it was quite a walk for my cane and me to trod up the winding ramp to reach the entry point.

Still worth the morning visit, however, and we will likely attend again next February when we return to fun Destin.

“Winter guest festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This a very accessible and spacious venue for small conventions. The event we attended was not worth the trip.

“Beautiful Facility”

We had our annual Feast of Tabernacles at the Emerald Coast Conference Center and it was gorgeous. The facilities were clean, neatly decorated and provided everything we needed.
