"O-Town." "The City Beautiful." Call it whatever you will, but know this… Orlando has become one of the nation’s top corporate event spots in recent years. It’s a city that has it all. World famous theme parks, breathtaking natural surroundings, premium golf courses, hip nightlife, and to seal the deal, a subtropical climate all year round. Having your next corporate event in Orlando is a guaranteed win. Here are 6 do’s and don’ts to help you plan.
DON’T miss the theme parks
Just take your pick of the incredible theme park experiences awaiting you and your group in Orlando. Become kids again at Disney World, geek out at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, have a splash at SeaWorld or choose from so much more. Wherever you end up, you’re sure to have an immersive experience that builds bonds and makes memories. Be sure to contact a park’s event planner in advance for special corporate group rates and activities.
DO catch the Magic show
Don’t skip Orlando’s other Magic Kingdom… the 20,000 seat Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic. From October to June, the Magic take the floor for some of the NBA’s hottest action. Situated in downtown Orlando, the arena is just a quick walk from the city’s thriving restaurant and bar scene. Book a corporate suite and give your group a first-hand demonstration of high-level teamwork when these elite athletes take the floor.
DON’T skip the links
Golf and business go hand in hand, so don’t miss this opportunity to play some of the country’s finest courses with your co-workers and clients. Picturesque views, challenging play and holes that incorporate Orlando’s unique natural habitats make for some can’t-miss golf. With 170 courses to choose from (many designed by the game’s top names), all skill levels and price ranges are in-play. Schedule an outing for large groups or book a couple foursomes for small gatherings - just be sure to call well in advance.
DO take a Kayak Eco-Tour
Take your group into nature with a kayak eco-tour through mossy, cypress-lined Shingle Creek. You’re likely to spot bald eagles, alligators and plenty of other Florida wildlife. Unplug, decompress and enjoy the stunning sights and sounds of the Everglades. Book your tour through any number of local guides and for the best views, paddle during sunrise or sunset.
DON’T forget to chill
Pamper your group at one of Orlando’s many luxury and boutique spas. Three to try: the Ritz-Carlton Spa, a 40,000 square foot palace recently rated number 2 on TripAdvisor's "Top 10 Hotel Spas in the U.S."; Mandara Spa at Universal's Portofino Bay Hotel, where you’ll enjoy world-class pampering that blends exotic Balinese and Indonesian healing traditions with North American influences; and The Spa at Shingle Creek, which draws on its natural surroundings (the headwaters of the Florida Everglades) for a healing, restorative experience that incorporates local organics.
DO rock the House
From a sit-down lunch to a full venue buy-out, Orlando’s House of Blues is a favorite for corporate events. Build a custom menu packed with fresh local flavors. Get the party started with our outstanding custom menus and mixology. Rock out to world-class live music and DJ’s. Enjoy a 57,000 square foot indoor and outdoor space with a stylishly southern-delta vibe. If you want your next corporate event to floor your clients, inspire your team, captivate your prospects and show the world that your company just flat-out rocks, you have to bring it to The House of Blues.
