Orlando is one of the most popular destination spots in America (duh!). Did you also know that it is one of the hottest spots for conventions and corporate events? Not only is Orlando home to the nations second largest convention center, that same convention center has an annual attendance of more than 1.3 MILLION people! And that’s just one of the many convention venues in town! Here are a few interesting facts about the International Drive District and it’s economic impact on the city:
- The International Drive District alone adds over 7 BILLION dollars in gross taxable value to the Orange County Tax roll!
- More than 5 MILLION visitors stay in I-Drive hotels every year
- International Drive employs more than 75 THOUSAND locals!
Needless to say that in our business we serve many professionals. This has led us to work in and around the convention hotels over the years. Big companies throw HUGE parties to motivate and reward their staff every year and we always enjoy getting to be a part of it. Corporations big and small have been using Hughes Fioretti Photography to document these events for years and as a result, we have gotten to see some pretty awesome things. From crazy parties with motorcycles and aerial performers to celebrity encounters, convention and event photography can be pretty exciting.
If you are planning a convention or another event for your company, send us an email or give us a call. We specialize in events and can provide multiple types of photographic services.
