HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – The Diplomat Beach Resort reopened its doors on June 1 after a 14-month closure. Local news outlets reported that the closure was largely due to the loss of conference business during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The onsite meeting spaces include a 50,000-square-foot great hall; four ballrooms, including a 20,000-square-foot grand ballroom overlooking the Atlantic Ocean; 39 breakout rooms; and outdoor special event areas, including the pool deck and 33rd-floor lounge space, which offers panoramic views.
