Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa


Information:
The first anime convention in northwest Florida will be held on November 18-20, 2005 at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa. The convention is at the beautiful beach resort city of Destin, Florida. It is part of the Emerald Coast, named for its crystal clear aquamarine colored ocean. The Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa is arguably the most luxurious hotel on the most beautiful beach in the United States (as ranked by The USA Today for the past 5 years). This 2,400 acre resort boasts 73 holes of championship golf, 13 tennis courts, the country's largest charter fishing boat fleet, 3 indoor and outdoor pools, a private beach, a full service spa, 2 whirlpools, scuba diving, and unparalleled shopping centers. With over 32,000 square feet of meeting space, the Hilton Sandestin Beach is more than qualified to hold a convention of this size. There is enough space for 3 video rooms, multiple panel/gaming rooms, an Artists' Alley, a large Dealers room, and a huge Main Events room. This is one convention that should not be missed.
