Outdoor meeting and event space construction completes at The Renaissance

The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort and Convention Center in Jacksonville/St. Augustine has completed its renovation and expansion of its outdoor meeting, event and recreational space. The large project included new and expanded outdoor function space with brick pavers and new furniture in conversational groupings; a new fountain called La Piazza; a new gazebo; and a new and expanded pool deck with new seating areas.

The new outdoor function space, now named La Terrazza, is able to accommodate groups of up to 2,000 guests. La Terrazza features advanced technology and power capability, comparable to that provided in indoor ballrooms. This includes underground cables and wiring for communication and internet to the stage location, and to the gazebo, as well as underground connection points for two different size tent configurations (40’ x 50’ and 40’ x 60’), according to Jeffrey Oliasami, general manager of the 301-room Northeast Florida resort.

With this expansion the resort added 15,000 square feet of new function space, bringing the resort’s offerings to 101,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Together with the adjacent World Golf Hall of Fame, the AAA Four-Diamond resort is the largest combination hotel and convention center between Atlanta and Orlando.

“La Terrazza is absolutely beautiful, and is an outstanding new option for groups,” said Oliasami. “It is perfect for large or small gatherings of any kind. Whether the group wishes to conduct an elegant outdoor reception; host an al fresco breakfast, lunch or dinner; enjoy cocktails on the patio or poolside; host a VIP lunch at the new gazebo; or really host any kind of outdoor event, La Terrazza is an exceptional option for groups. Plus, it is also an ideal site for weddings.”

“We did this renovation and dramatic expansion of our outdoor meeting, event and recreational space to cater to the many needs of our groups and guests,” added Oliasami. “Guests also will appreciate that they can now enjoy restaurant service for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on La Terrazza, cocktail service poolside, and a greatly expanded pool deck for relaxing or sunbathing.”
