Why Meet in Orlando? For A Host of Reasons, But Here are the Top Five

1. Award Winning Convention Center

With 7 million square feet of flexible meeting and exhibit space, The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) is widely regarded as one of the top venues in the country and has emerged as a recovery leader having hosted over 200 events since July 2020.

2. Year-Round Sunny Climate

Florida nicknamed “The Sunshine State” provides Orlando with 233 days of sunshine per year with a year-round subtropical temperate climate that maintains a comfortable average annual temperature of 72 degrees. Orlando promises and delivers a seemingly endless variety of ways to take advantage of Orlando’s sunny climes.

3. Food Glorious Food

With thousands of restaurants throughout the destination, including more than 75 acclaimed eateries within a 2-mile radius of the convention center on International Drive (I-Drive), Orlando dishes up a vibrant and diverse culinary scene. I-Drive’s ICON Park features an array of dining options including barbeque at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red, or Tapa Toro for paella. Nearby, at Pointe Orlando there’s Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar, or Brazilian steakhouse Rodizio Grill, both perfect for large groups. Just a short trip from International Drive, Orlando’s Restaurant Row district is a dining destination in its own right, featuring some of Orlando’s most acclaimed eateries, including Eddie V’s Prime Seafood, Seasons 52 and the always lively Rocco’s Tacos.

4. Easy access

As one of the top 10 busiest airports in the country (and 27th busiest in the world!), Orlando International Airport (MCO) continues to improve the passenger experience with constant upgrades to the airport and increased airlift, all while keeping safety front and center. And for those who want to do their own driving, Orlando remains a popular destination for drive-to events with attendees arriving from throughout the country and within the state.

5. Accommodations for Every Budget

With 150-plus meeting hotels, more than 127,000 guest rooms and a combined 5 million square feet of meeting space, there’s a hotel to fit every budget. Many are within walking distance of the OCCC, with four major convention hotels with direct connection via covered walkway bridges, providing access to 5,185 premium hotel rooms (Hyatt Regency Orlando, Rosen Centre, Rosen Plaza and Hilton Orlando). A wide range of other hotels are at or close to area theme parks with several business hotels in downtown Orlando and in the Lake Nona area.
