The Shriners Conventions in Daytona Beach are Going to Make History!

Shriners

Daytona Beach, the smallest city to host a Shriners convention, won the bid and will host the Shriner Conventions for both 2017 and 2018.   These conventions will take place July 9-13, 2017, and July 15-19, 2018.  It is anticipated each convention will draw 15,000 – 20,000 visitors. Both events will be held at the Ocean Center. 

Three hotels have already been chosen as host hotels for the 2017 convention and they are: The Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort, the Wyndham Ocean Walk Resort and the Plaza Resort & Spa. 

Under the guidance of the Shriners and the HAAA about 30 sub-committees have been organized to handle all events and accommodations.   Special websites have even been created for this event as well and they are: www.imperial2017.com and www.imperial2018.com.  The idea for the logo for the 2017 convention centers around Daytona International Speedway whereas the logo for the 2018 convention centers more on the beach. 

For anyone who doesn’t know, Shriners International is a fraternity, a brotherhood.  They base their principles on the Masonic ideals of brotherly love and truth.  They are committed to family and providing care for those in need.  Shriners International also supports Shriners Hospitals for Children®. 

The Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort is already looking forward to welcoming the Shriners and their families to our beautiful city.  Information on our resort can be found on our website or by calling 386-254-8200.
