Beginning this week, the Edgewater Beach and Golf Resort conference center is undergoing a $250,000 plus facelift. This is the first of several phases of renovations to the resort property which will take place between now and the beginning of 2009.
As one of the largest conference center properties in Bay County, the Edgewater conference center has more than 32,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space. The conference center was constructed in 2000 to accommodate the growing demand for meeting facilities in Panama City Beach and currently hosts more than 2,000 meetings, conferences, weddings and sporting events each year.
“Since 2000, our conference center has been utilized by locals and national clients,” said Tom Sparks, general manager of The Resort Collection of Panama City Beach. “We are excited about the completion by the end of November.”
Other renovations on the horizon for Edgewater Beach and Golf Resort include a kid’s pool and water feature, sports complex to include a basketball, batting cages, kids playground, resurfacing of the current tennis courts, exterior improvements to the resort towers and new landscaping.
“The additional features we are adding to the resort property will add more value to our guests,” said Paul Wohlford, vice president of sales and marketing. “The renovations will allow us to maintain a competitive edge in the vacation and meetings market.”
