Welcome to Orlando

Digital Guide to Orlando

In the past few years, Orlando has been ranked as the number one destination for family vacationers by USA Today’s Tripology, and tops the list of affordable destinations by Priceline. The New York Times named Orlando one of its most popular places to go in 2015.

As the travel and tourism capital of the United States, the Orlando tourism industry continues to evolve the destination and excite visitors. And, with seven of the top 10 theme parks in the world, attendees can be assured to have some fun before or after the meeting.

With temperate year-round weather, affordable domestic and international flights and a host of accommodations that fit every budget, Orlando simply is one of the best places for a meeting. And, with one out of three jobs in the tourist industry here, hospitality is in our DNA- that’s why our service has become world renowned. We know how to make attendees feel welcome and offer an experience remembered long after the meeting ends.

If you’ve never been here, you’re in for a treat. Been here before? You just might not recognize it. From Orlando International Airport’s improvement plan that will nearly double its capacity, to new hotels, hotel renovations and new dining and entertainment districts, there is more to see and do than ever before. Our meeting attendees appreciate all the activity in such close proximity to major hotels. And while we’re known for our theme parks and other major attractions, there is so much more here in Orlando. Once the meeting has adjourned, whether you’re looking for a quick getaway between business sessions or an all-day excursion, Orlando offers something for every schedule and every interest. Golf, shopping, superb restaurants, destination spas and museums await. And, with a bit of planning, maybe a show at the brand new Phillips Center for the Performing Arts or an Orlando Magic basketball game at the Amway Center?

For groups, there are plenty of activities right on International Drive (I-Drive); take a spin on the Orlando Eye observation wheel, test your driving skills on a high performance go-kart or relax and bowl a few games. There are also countless fine-dining options on I-Drive as well as a short distance away in one of our other dining districts. Orlando is fast becoming a haven for foodies, home to numerous celebrity chefs at area hotels and entertainment complexes, with so many diverse menus that you’ll want to try them all.

For golfers, there is an abundance of golf courses designed by the greats like Palmer and Nicklaus and the Tom Fazio-designed Tranquilo Golf Course at the new Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort. We also have 19 destination spas – a perfect place to get pampered after the meeting.
