Citywide International Convention
“If you are looking for an excellent location to hold a great convention, I highly recommend DaytonaShriners Imperial Session Daytona Beach Florida Beach. They have become a location to be reckoned with; as they have positioned themselves to be on the short list of cities to be considered for many enjoyable conventions in the near future.”
~ Gary Bergenske, board of directors for Shriners International and Shriners Hospitals for Children. The Imperial Session was held in Daytona Beach in 2017 and 2018.

"Daytona Beach is a great home for The American Ceramic Societies International Conference and Expo on Advanced Ceramics and Composites. The staff at the Hilton Daytona Beach Resort and the Ocean Center exceed expectations in regards to service, quality and value year after year.  The local restaurants work hard to recognize the special needs of our guests, such as custom menus in multiple languages that the good folks at Sloppy Joe's create for our international guests.  Finally, the CVB supports our meeting with a wide range of services and personal attention. We look forward to returning again and again."
~ Greg Phelps, CMP | Meeting Planner, The American Ceramic Society

“VISIT FLORIDA held its signature event, Florida Encounter, in Daytona Beach in November 2011. Daytona Beach was a great destination for our program and the attendees, including many meeting professionals, who loved the location. The CVB was great to work with and I recommend Daytona Beach and the Ocean Center as a meeting, convention or incentive travel destination.” 
~ Steven Bonda, CMP, manager, Meetings & Conventions, VISIT FLORIDA

We look forward to working with the CVB, Hilton and Ocean Center teams to put on the best conference.”
