ORLANDO, Fla.—Universal Orlando Resort will soon embark on the largest meeting space expansion in its history. By fall 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. 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.
“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 customizable 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.
