By autumn 2015, Loews Royal Pacific Resort—already the largest meeting hotel at Universal Orlando—will greatly expand its meeting and event space from 85,000 square feet to more than 140,000 square feet. Inspired by the beauty of the South Pacific, the expanded areas will seamlessly connect to the existing meeting space. Planners will benefit from flawless execution with a local flavour that is the calling card of all meetings at Loews Hotels.
The new space will feature a nearly 36,000-square-foot ballroom, divisible by 12, along with four additional breakout rooms and pre-function space. Once completed, the expansion will offer meeting planners a total of 141,330 square feet of meeting space on one level. Group reservations are currently being accepted.
“Our expansion responds to the tremendous demand we have received from larger groups,” said Larry Beiderman, managing director of Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando. “Meeting planners have a lot to look forward to as we expand, and they will continue to benefit from our award-winning culinary team, along with the exciting outdoor event space we offer.”
Upon completion of this significant expansion, Universal Orlando will feature more than 306,000 square feet of customisable meetings and event space destination-wide. The expansion comes on the heels of a year of growth for Universal Orlando, with the opening of the destination’s largest hotel, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, a historic expansion of Universal CityWalk and the highly anticipated The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley.
“This is such an exciting time to plan an event at Universal Orlando, as we grow the universe of options throughout our resort,” said Kathy Cattoor, vice president of resort sales for Universal Orlando Resort. “Each experience our team creates is unique to each group, whether hosted at one of our award-winning hotels, world-class theme parks or Universal CityWalk. Our team of meeting specialists excels at creating one-of-a-kind and productive events.”
