Omni Orlando Expands Conference Center

The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate will open a new 55,000-square-foot conference center in January 2013, it announced last week. The new facility will add more than 46,000 square feet of indoor event space to the resort, which will now have more than 128,000 square feet in total.

According to the resort, the centerpiece of the new conference center will be a 28,800-square-foot ballroom — divisible into eight flexible meeting rooms — capable of holding up to 150 10-foot-by-10-foot exhibits.

"The conference center will improve the already-top notch luxury meeting experience offered at the Omni Orlando Resort," said Managing Director Mike Magnelli. "We look forward to serving more needs with the expansion to the resort."
