Orlando is so much more than just a home to a dozen theme parks. There’s no denying it: the weather is glorious and there is so much to do here, one can never be bored, but why should you come to this central Florida city to conduct business and exhibit?
Because downtown Orlando is the heart of Central Florida's diverse emerging economy. It is considered the hub for finance, government and commerce.
Why exhibit there?
Orlando is the ideal exhibition destination thanks to the size of the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) and the warm welcome you receive from the exhibition staff, but more importantly, Florida is known as the Sunshine State. The glass walls and windows of the OCCC allow for you to take full advantage of the glorious weather - everyone is happier in the sunshine.
The OCCC is only minutes from Orlando International Airport and within easy walking and driving distance of world-class dining, shopping and entertainment options.

Key tourist hotspots
Which park shall we start at?
- Kadence - here you’ll find some of the best sushi in the city, they serve Japanese breakfast on the weekends and chirashi bowls filled with sashimi, vegetables, and sushi rice to go.
- Mathers Social Gathering - these guys make some of the best cocktails in the city, but they also have a small food menu, which includes everything from chilli rice cakes to charcuterie boards.

- Local currency - US dollar.
- Language - English.
- Visa requirements. You will require a visa to enter the USA. What kind that is depends on where you have come from and what you are planning on doing there. The first step you have to take in order to start your US visa application, is to figure out under what kind of visa you are permitted to enter the United States. After you have selected the visa type you need to apply for, you should check the requirements and start gathering the documents that are required for that visa.
- Plug sockets in the USA are the standard two pin plugs.
- Cultural sensitivities. The USA is a real patchwork of cultures, identities and customs, however there aren’t any real cultural sensitivities to be aware of, but points worth noting:
- Most Americans move to a first name basis pretty quickly.
- Americans have no etiquette when it comes to giving and receiving business cards.
- Arrive on time for meetings as time and punctuality are very important to Americans.
- Use statistics to back up your claims - most Americans are impressed by hard data and evidence.
