Conference & Convention Council

The Fort Myers Conference & Convention Council (CCC) is the official advisory board of Harborside Event Center.  The CCC is comprised of professional business leaders from across the City of Fort Myers and Lee County with specific interest in the marketing of Harborside Event Center as a convention destination.  The CCC Board Members all serve in a volunteer capacity for the benefit of the City of Fort Myers. The CCC is tasked by City Council to advise facility management and oversee the associated marketing expenses of the venue.  It is the mission of the CCC to assist City leaders with the expansion planning of the venue to create a convention destination that will provide positive economic impact to the surrounding area and Lee County.  The CCC works jointly with the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau in the distribution of marketing funds to the venue which are specifically earmarked for marketing Harborside Event Center to out of town meeting, exhibition and convention planners. 
 
The CCC has also developed the Community Art Showcase as a benefit to the local art community and enthusiasts.  The showcase is now spearheaded and curated by ArtFest Fort Myers.  For more information about the Community Art Showcase please Click Here!
