Marking the completion of a $35 million renovation, Delta Hotels Orlando Celebration has unveiled a fully redesigned convention center, complete with attractive indoor and outdoor options. 
The convention center offers 10,000 sq. ft of indoor and outdoor space revamped with new carpeting, lighting, stylish furniture and other visual enhancements which showcase the hotel's fresh new modern feel. The centerpiece, the Preserve Ballroom, boasts almost 5,800 sq. ft of space with 6 breakout rooms. Groups seeking to enjoy the warm Florida weather can take advantage of two expansive outdoor areas, a nearly 2,400 sq. ft. social lawn and the recently redesigned casual dining Rum Shack, located poolside.  
Groups can easily transition into a lunch or dinner restaurant buyout in the signature restaurant, the Pointe, adjacent to the convention center, or wind down at the Waves Bar and Grille, perfectly positioned against the backdrop of 20 tranquil acres of lush, tropical gardens near the lobby.
Located just 1.5 miles from Walt Disney World Resort, and an official Walt Disney World Good Neighbor hotel, guests also have access to complimentary scheduled transportation to Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort.
 When the meetings business is done, attendees can enjoy two pools, a waterfall and slide, two tennis courts, a fitness area, bars and restaurants ranging from grab-and-go to full-service.  
 "The culmination of the convention center meeting space design provides us the ability to offer groups an entire fresh new hotel to enjoy," said General Manager Carl Rodgers. "We look forward to welcoming groups to our newly designed tropical oasis," he added. 
"Our convention center offers groups the convenience of contiguous accessibility to all indoor space and immediate access to our lush outdoor options," said Director of Sales and Marketing Biljana Djokovic. "We are excited to present these attractive options to groups looking for an intimate meeting experience in a stylish, new venue," she concluded.
