"Daytona Beach is the perfect place to host our event. There is so much for our players and families to do. Plus the beach is awesome! The hotels are very accommodating with a wide range of room types and pricing. The city and the CVB are extremely helpful and professional in organizing and promoting our event."
David Banner, Athletx event director
