Orlando Becomes Top Meeting Destination in America for 2015
Cvent has named Orlando number one among all other meeting industry destination cities
The honor bestowed on Orlando is based on a thorough evaluation by Cvent—a leader in event management solutions—and was based on a broad range of qualifying factors, measured from July 2014 to 2015. The criteria focuses on everything from total number of proposals received and room nights booked, to the percentage of qualified venues for holding meetings. It is no secret that Orlando has been leading the race for domination in the business meetings and conventions arena, but traditionally this top spot was given to cities like Chicago or Las Vegas.
Every week Orlando hosts over a dozen medium to large-size conventions and trade shows. However, smaller meetings bring in thousands of people for a wide range of events to include seminars, specialized training and private corporate events. And not for nothing, Orlando is well-prepared to receive business travelers with an established infrastructure that was built for our 60-plus million annual tourist influx—all giving business visitors a place that is perfect for them to come enjoy not just business, but leisure and excitement like no other place.
A notable number from Cvent’s research was the number of hotels that can host meetings, which is over 450 as of July 2015. Vista Cay Resort by Millenium offers exceptional facilities for small meetings and can accommodate convention attendees with ease of access to the Orange County Convention Center, which is located next to the resort.
