Meetings and conventions, including city-wide and in-house events, booked by the Visit Orlando convention sales team in 2023 and beyond, will bring an approximately $4 billion impact on the local economy. This fiscal year, from October 2023 to September 2024, the Orange County Convention Center will welcome 1.7 million attendees across 184 events, generating $2.96 billion in economic impact.  


Beyond supporting local businesses and employing thousands, meetings bring considerable recognition and benefit to supporting the Orange County community.


For example, events at the OCCC alone over the past year contributed:  


  • $1 million in donated home improvement products.  

  • 40,000 pounds of repurposed materials to build homes. 

  • 32,000 pounds of food donated to those in need.
