WHY EXHIBIT WITH US?

The Palm Beach County Convention Center is an $83-million dollar, 350,000 square foot, superior state-of-the-art facility in one single building.  With 30-foot ceilings and large overhead load-in-doors, it is the ideal setting for consumer shows in Palm Beach County.  In addition, with its location just east of Interstate 95 on Okeechobee Blvd., the Palm Beach County Convention Center is the easiest facility of its kind to access in all of South Florida and will draw thousands of qualified homeowners from Palm Beach, Martin, Broward and Dade counties.

The Palm Beach County Convention Center provides a superior location for exhibitors.  Unlike the fairgrounds, the Convention Center offers:

Ø       Superior floor plan, all under one roof with no back rooms where you could be missed.

Ø       Professional loading dock with 9 bays and a 35’ wide drive-on ramp, which allows direct access from the loading dock via three separate doors.  This makes the Move-In & Move-Out process hassle free.

Ø       30-foot ceiling height and High Intensity Discharge (HID) light fixtures provide excellent lighting assuring no darkened exhibit areas.

Ø       No load capacity limit on ground floor.

Ø       Highest recorded attendance of any home show held in Palm Beach County (records on file with the Convention Center).

Ø       Upscale displays with no excess overlap of similar exhibitors.

Ø       Convenient location just ¾ mile east of I-95 on Okeechobee Blvd.

Ø       Steady traffic flow ensuring you can be seen by all who attend.

Ø       Three thousand guest rooms are available within three miles.

The choice is clear when it comes to an upscale home show in Palm Beach County.  The Palm Beach Convention Center is the place to be!
