Hotel &Travel


MDCE 2017 is being held at the Orange County Convention Center in West Halls A1 and A2, which is right across the walkway from the Rosen Centre Hotel.

The Rosen Centre Hotel is currently SOLD OUT. If you wish to stay at the Rosen Centre and have not made a reservation, make sure to place your name on the wait list and book a room from one of the additional hotels listed below.


We also have more than 600 additional rooms reserved at the Rosen Plaza. The room rate is the same at both hotels. When calling to reserve a hotel room, request the room block for the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo.

Rosen Plaza Hotel

Please note there are several Rosen Hotels, two of which are located on International Drive – each adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center. MDCE is being held at the Rosen Centre Hotel on International Drive.

The host hotel for the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo is the Rosen Plaza Hotel. No one from the Rosen Plaza or MDCE will call you to solicit your hotel reservation for MDCE. Any travel agencies or housing bureaus that indicate they are representing MDCE or affiliated or unaffiliated hotels are perpetrating a fraud and are looking to secure your credit card information.
Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to be for lower rates, however they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties or be completely nonrefundable. If you receive a phone call or email, MDCE strongly recommends that you DO NOT make your hotel reservations with them.
Please be aware of and report any unauthorized solicitations to Susan Clement with MDCE at 763-383-4454 or
