We may not have beaches in Orlando—but the Surf Expo is already causing waves in Central Florida
The world of surfing, watersports and beach lifestyle is about to converge at the Orange County Convention Center, September 6-8, 2013, bringing people from all over the globe to the vacation heartland of International Drive in Orlando.
The surf expo is held twice a year—usually in January and September—and it attracts thousands of surf products and brands, as well as over 20,000 beach lifestyle enthusiasts who trade a day in the sand and waves to see the latest trends in the watersport world. Since the mid 70’s, the beach lifestyle has become a reason to live and work for millions of people from all walks of life. In fact, the beach lifestyle and watersports trend is expected to continue growing as new generations of surfers, body-boarders and water-skiers seek new thrills under the sun.
As a niche market event, the Surf Expo is endorsed by several surf industry associations and covers a wide number of board sport categories, including surfing, skating, wakeboard, waterski, paddle board, and lifestyle products ranging from energy bars to sports drinks. Add to that the countless brands of apparels, accessories and other related goods that make the beach lifestyle one of the hottest trends in the sports world—and with a coastline of more than 1,000 miles, Florida is one of the top beach lifestyle territories in the planet.
The Orange County Convention Center where the Surf Expo will be held is just around the corner from Vista Cay Resort by Millenium, adding to the convenience of staying close to not just the event, but a wide variety of entertainment and nightlife. With quick access to Point Orlando, the I-Drive tourist corridor and a myriad of restaurants, bars and lounges, Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is the place where you can ‘Hang Ten’ during your Orlando visit for the Surf Expo.
There is no better place to stay than Vista Cay Resort by Millenium and we invite you to book your next trip to Orlando, whether on business or leisure, at our little gem in the heart of Orlando’s International Drive tourist district.
