Ocean Center It’s on the doorstep of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s in the heart of the “new” Daytona Beach. It’s a multi-use facility that hosts conventions, tradeshows, concerts, banquets, family entertainment shows and sporting events. It’s the Ocean Center, open for business with 200,000 square feet of interior meeting space. The 164,000-square-foot expansion of the Ocean Center, which has doubled the facility’s size, is nearing completion. The $76 million construction project will elevate the facility to one of the largest in Florida, and in the second tier of convention facilities throughout the world.
