Walkability to Meet
& Stay By the Sea

Another perk about meeting at the Ocean Center is the variety of accommodations attendees will find within walking distance of the venue. Choose from luxe oceanside resorts, nationally-known, big-box brands and amenity-rich boutique-style hotels. Wherever you stay, the mix of options near the Ocean Center is unmatched.



Conveniently Close to
the Airport & Major Highways

The Ocean Center is located just 10 minutes from Daytona Beach International Airport. It provides travelers with multiple, daily non-stop flights to Atlanta, GA on Delta Air Lines and Charlotte, NC on American Airlines, with additional seasonal non-stop service to Philadelphia (PHL), Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) and Washington, D.C. (DCA) via American Airlines.

And for those who would rather hit the highway, Interstate 4 and Interstate 95 offer convenient travel to the beachside destination.

Seas the Meeting Experiences Near the Ocean Center

When the meeting day is done, attendees don’t have to venture far from the Ocean Center to soak up all Daytona Beach has to offer. Not only is the beach steps away … but thrilling attractions, shopping, waterfront dining and a plethora of entertainment options are all within walking distance of the venue.

After your meeting, there’s no better place to unplug, relax and rejuvenate than at the World’s Most Famous Beach — just steps from the Ocean Center's front doors.

The Daytona Beach Boardwalk & Pier is the place for attendees to have some off-agenda fun while still being close to the convention center and meeting hotels.

Endless entertainment and unique restaurants await at the Ocean Walk Shoppes in Daytona Beach, just steps from our world-famous coastline and across the street from the Ocean Center.

Walk over to a festival or concert at the Historic Daytona Beach Bandshell — an outdoor amphitheater directly on the beach.

Make your way over to the Ocean Center’s neighboring aquatic adventure center, Daytona Lagoon, and choose between a water park, mini golf and go-karts (or enjoy them all).

The Ocean Center is adjacent to the Peabody Auditorium, which features Broadway plays, shows and concerts throughout the year for attendees to enjoy.
