Our wide-open space on over 200 acres of natural Florida setting has access to the Lakeland Linder International Airport (KLAL) and hosts the annual SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo in March or April. Located along the 1-4 High-Tech Corridor, only 5 miles off 1-4 (Exit 25), the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus is easily accessible to the Tampa and Orlando metro areas. In addition to our acreage, the Expo Campus has a myriad of special event spaces – from boardrooms to clubhouses, to aircraft hangars, to wide-open grassy areas - there is space to accommodate most needs. Onsite Camping (full/partial hookups and primitive) is available for your group. Major festivals, RV rallies, galas, trade shows, sporting events, including 5k races have all found their perfect home at the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus with the support of our friendly and professional Events Team. From initial planning, event execution, to a seamless move-out, we are here to turn your vision into reality, and to deliver outstanding results for our clients. https://flysnf.org/venues/

The Lunz Architecture Group describes the Pavilion in 2002 (one year after completion):

"Sloping steel columns tether the large “wing” of the pavilion roof to the ground. The tapered edge both visually lightens the roof structure while reinforcing its metaphor as a wing. The angled forms reference modern aviation design while the crossing pattern of the steel columns recalls the struts of an earlier generation of flight. The wing as a concept is simple yet appropriate in its emotional impact acting as a precursor to the prestigious Howard Hughes exhibit housed within the museum itself."
