Star Wars Celebration VI: OCCC Voted #1 Convention Center in the U.S.
Reported by Justin on 24 Apr 2012 18:18

Business Review USA recently ranked their top 10 convention centers located across the United States. And their top overall choice was (drumroll please)...

The Orange County Convention Center

Why is this story important to us here at Jedi News? Well, we feel fairly confident that you already know the obvious answer to that question...

Star Wars Celebration VI baby!

From the article:

Central Florida’s OCCC is a massive center, offering 2,100,000 square feet of exhibit space in its 7,000,000 square-foot complex. But it’s not just size that brought OCCC to the top of our list. The OCCC provides Central Florida with a remarkable amount of economic benefits at no cost to the county’s citizens and it is estimated that activity in the center yields an annual tax savings of $87.50 per Orange County household. This self-proclaimed “Center of Hospitality” offers amenities to please (including massage services, three full-service restaurants, eight food courts and remote airline check-in) and was the staging area for relief operations for Hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jeanne.
