Orlando gives you the opportunity to host once-in-a-lifetime meetings and group outings at some of our most popular attractions, restaurants, nightlife hotspots and more — including our world-famous theme parks.

Venues That Wow

The Orange County Convention Center and our one-of-a-kind experiences aren’t the only reasons why Orlando is the country’s No. 1 meeting destination per Cvent. It also comes down to unique offsite venues that are eager to host private events your attendees will never forget. The following are prime examples, but keep in mind that they represent just a small sampling of our options

Disney Springs®

Not only is this dining, entertainment and shopping district at Walt Disney World® Resort home to Orlando’s largest concentration of celebrity chefs, but many Disney Springs restaurants double as unforgettable venues for offsite events. Standouts include Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s Morimoto Asia, José Andrés’ JALEO, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, Rick Bayless’ Frontera Cocina, and others. Don’t skip the unique themed options either, such as The Edison, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and more.

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

The crown jewel of Orlando’s performing arts scene, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts invites you to reserve sections, reconfigure spaces for your purposes, or even rent the entire facility, with four theaters and an outdoor plaza to choose from — including the acoustically remarkable Steinmetz Hall and intimate Judson’s Live. Past examples of possibilities have included cocktail bars, sampling stations and even a speakeasy. And naturally, there’s no more majestic space to deliver a keynote than from one of the Dr. Phillips Center’s stages.

Guidewell Innovation Center

Located in Orlando’s Lake Nona neighborhood, close to Orlando International Airport, this 92,000-square-foot facility was designed to support the community’s medical partners — but its state-of-the-art office and laboratory space also serves as an innovative function venue for groups of any kind, particularly those engaged in medical and scientific pursuits.

Immersive Experiences

Bringing your meeting or event to the next level is always the goal. Engaging your attendees with a one-of-a-kind event impacts what they take away from their convention experience. Our theme parks — and the creative geniuses behind them — roll out the red carpet for groups with experiences that can be customized to meet your needs.
