Baytowne Conference Center Renovation

The 30,000 sq. ft. Baytowne Conference center will undergo a major renovation mid-September 2019. When the conference center opens its doors, once again in January 2020, a brand new look and feel will debut! The construction of Hotel Effie Sandestin has given us the opportunity to touch every part of the space. The new flooring, paint, fixtures and more will mirror the style of the 20,000 sq. ft. of new construction meeting space of the Hotel Effie. The cool colors and updated fixtures and details are a perfect backdrop for inspired meetings while being neutral enough for events which desire their own style to shine brighter than the room.
