It’s hard to believe, but Visit Orlando is celebrating our 35th anniversary this year! And while much has changed since our founding, one constant has been the collaborative partnership between our entire industry and Orange County partners.

I am looking forward this year to working with our new mayor, Jerry Demings, and his team, along with the support of our county commissioners, to ensure another successful year in 2019.

Through our county’s leadership and our Visit Orlando members, our team at Visit Orlando is able to aggressively promote our destination on a global scale. In turn, that fuels the economic engine driving our region’s growth, making Orlando a world-class place to live, work and play.
