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 one mile 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 home owners from Palm Beach, Martin and northern Broward counties.

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