Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center
The Broward County Convention Center features new amenities and technology, excellent food and beverage offerings, and versatile conference space and exhibit halls for meetings and conventions of all sizes. The 600,000-square-foot LEED Gold-certified facility is adjacent to Fort Lauderdale's beautiful waterways.
Located in Port Everglades, minutes from the airport, hotels, restaurants, shopping, cultural activities, and natural wonders with warm weather year-round, it's the convention center meeting planners love.
The Broward County Convention Center was the first convention center in Florida to be LEED certified and third existing building in the U.S. to achieve LEED Gold. In 2002, a $34 million expansion added 230,000 square feet, bringing the center to a total of 600,000 square feet.
“The staff is very supportive in helping us grow the largest boat show in the world. They do everything possible to accommodate the size and scope of our show, even when we're bringing 40-foot boats into exhibit rooms and foyers.”– Dane Graziano, Chief Operating Officer, Show Management
