Three years ago we held our annual convention and expo at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach. It was such a resounding success that we are returning! The commitment and professionalism of the the Ocean Center staff and the hospitality community made the decision to return an easy one! The world may have changed in the last few years, but the best parts of Daytona Beach have not. The Ocean Center is a facility with a team of experienced professionals who are dedicated to making the events they host successful!

It’s just a great partnership. USAG events are about the competition, but they’re also more than that—they’re an opportunity for families to spend time together and make memories. The facility and the community just lends itself to making this more than a competition, it makes it a destination event.

Alex Jebailey, founder and director of CEO Gaming, Inc.

The Ocean Center, with their staff and logistics, is one of the easiest convention centers we’ve ever encountered to work with in the gaming industry. It’s so easy, always helpful with everything.


Thanks to an incredibly attentive staff, each event feels like a big deal, no matter its size. Unlike competing convention centers, the Ocean Center makes even the smallest meetings or events feel like the center of attention. We pride ourselves on providing a high level of personalized service other convention centers can’t offer.


With outdoor adventures, exciting attractions, waterfront dining and accommodations, and miles of wide, open beach, there’s plenty to see and do when the day’s events wrap up. Whether you’re a thrill-seeker logging high-speed laps on the same track as the NASCAR greats at the Daytona International Speedway, an outdoor enthusiast enjoying the natural beauty of the beaches and springs, or a foodie ready to discover your next great bite, there’s something for everyone.
