Large Venues

Central Florida’s Polk County meeting and conference venues are large enough to provide plenty of space for social distancing, but small enough to offer exclusivity without the worry of having to share your venues with other unrelated meetings or events.

When you are looking for larger venues and exhibition space the sky is literally the limit in Polk County:

  • Lakeland’s 200+ acre Sun n Fun Expo Campus is home to Florida’s Largest Annual Convention, the Sun n Fun Fly in, which attracts more than 200,000 aviation enthusiasts, pilots and aircraft builders each spring.
  • The newly renovated RP Funding Center’s offers more than 100,000+ square feet of flexible meeting and exhibition space.
  • Streamsong Resort’s exclusivity provides groups exclusive use of the resort’s 228 hotel rooms and their 22,000+ square feet of indoor and 51,000 square feet of outdoor meeting space.
  • Completed in January 2020 the Winter Haven Fieldhouse and Conference Center’s 45,000+ square feet of space that is perfect for a wide variety of events from trade shows and exhibitions to smaller events.

When you are looking to maximize your space and give your attendees a little elbow room, Polk County has a select roster of larger venues that will fit the needs for conferences and meetings of all sizes.
