Spend Quality Time with your Family in 2017


The 2017 Imperial Session in Daytona Beach will take place from July 9th through 13th. This will give all Shriners and their ladies a chance to stay home for the Fourth of July. We have had many positive comments back due to this change. Most Shriners will enjoy having the chance to spend the 4th with their families for a change and may even be able to participate in a local parade with other Shrine Units at home. Another plus to this is, if you still wish to be on the road for the Fourth of July in 2017, come to Daytona Beach a few days early and attend the NASCAR 400 race at the Daytona International Speedway.

The excitement is certainly building for the upcoming Shriners Imperial Session to be held in Daytona Beach in July of 2017. With the official opening of the Housing Office for this event opening its doors earlier this month the response has been overwhelmingly successful. Having the Annual Session of Shriners in a destination city that offers family fun and "The World's Most Famous Beach" is proving to be popular. 


Demand for rooms in the overflow hotels have begun to book up quickly. We are two years out from the Shriners arriving and over 4,400 room nights are already committed for in the overflow hotels. Six hotels are already sold out. Couple this with the Shriners room commitments at their headquarters hotels in Daytona Beach and the total room nights are pushing 10,000.


To the Shrine Centers who have stepped up and reserved their rooms early, we congratulate you and thank you for the vision you share with us in planning a great event in Daytona Beach. We know you and your fellow Shriners and their families are going to enjoy this great destination.


To our hotel partners, we thank you as well. We thank you  for all of the work and pre-planning you have worked on together with our Shriners Team to ensure this event is one of the best Shriners have ever seen. We thank you as well for "Believing" that Shriners and Daytona Beach are a great match. Your commitment to our success is essential. 


On behalf of our entire 2017 Team, we are looking forward to our Shriners Imperial Session in Daytona Beach with enthusiasm. Thank you for being a part of the excitement!


We'll see you at the beach...
