As Cvent’s No. 1 meetings destination in the country, Orlando continues to unveil meeting-focused initiatives and programs, transportation advancements, and award-winning dining experiences to entice planners to bring their groups to the destination.
Visit Orlando and Orlando Health, a not-for-profit healthcare organization that serves the southeastern United States, have joined forces to create a unique partnership. The new alliance designates Orlando Health as the Official Health and Wellness Partner of Visit Orlando and offers health-related benefits for the millions of visitors – including meeting and convention attendees -- who help make Orlando the most visited destination in the United States and Theme Park Capital of the World.
While offering benefits for leisure travelers, the partnership provides specifically for event planners customizable health solutions for their conference and attendees through an Orlando Health Virtual Care Center, which will open later this year at the Orange County Convention Center. Located in the west concourse on the first floor near the Visit Orlando Welcome Center, medical providers will be available via virtual visit 24 hours a day. During major conventions, the clinic will be staffed by Orlando Health clinicians.
Additionally, a newly established concierge telephone number is accessible for visitor-specific wellness tips and individualized health resources. That number is 321-265-4200. The line was created to help connect visitors who may need access to local medical resources such as emergency care, urgent care or even access to a virtual visit while visiting Orlando.

It’s now even easier to travel to and from Orlando with the recent opening of Orlando International Airport’s South Terminal Complex. The new facility adds 15 gates and includes a seamless, low-touch environment with a state-of-the-art radio frequency baggage system, numerous shops, restaurants and lounge facilities.
Brightline Orlando Station, conveniently located at Orlando International Airport’s (MCO) Terminal C, will connect domestic and international visitors traveling between Orlando and Miami with stops in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Riders will enjoy touchless ticketing, premium in-station lounges, complimentary WiFi, and topnotch bars and restaurants at every Brightline station.
Dining options play a key role in a group’s destination decision. Orlando already offers planners an exceptional culinary community to consider and now it has evolved even farther after being recognized with one of the world’s highest culinary honors.
This recent inaugural edition of the MICHELIN Guide Miami, Orlando and Tampa was revealed, with inspectors identifying four MICHELIN Starred restaurants in Orlando alone, along with notable mentions for Bib Gourmand (7) and Recommended (22) restaurants further distinguishing the destination’s culinary reputation.
