Orange County Convention Center #1 in the USA

By: Dominic Jones

The Business Review USA digital magazine featured a ranking of the Top Ten Convention Centers in the USA and The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), the home of Star Wars Celebration V and the future home of Star Wars Celebration VI, was ranked number 1!! In addition to Celebrations the OCCC also hosts the annual MegaCon event. Business Review USA had this to say about the OCCC:

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.

We at the Star Wars Underworld would like to say many congratulations to the great folks at the OCCC!! Well done and we can't wait to see you in August!!
