The Orange County Convention Center has been ranked the number one convention center in the country, according to a review by Business Review U.S.A.
Orlando's convention center beat out other well known centers including Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta; McCormick Place in Chicago and the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The online business magazine says the Orange County facility topped the list not only for its sheer size, which offers 2,100,000 square feet of exhibit space in a 7,000,000 square-foot complex, but also for the amenities available to guests.
The magazine says center offers perks which include three full-service restaurants, eight food courts, remote airline check-in and on-site massage services.
The convention center's significant economic impact on Central Florida was also listed as a factor, according to the magazine, saying the facility provides each Orange County household an annual tax savings of $87.50 per year based on the amount of activity the center brings in annually.
