The success of Orlando’s theme park industry and cross-disciplinary technology innovation have led to the region becoming a leading destination for high-tech companies….
My $.02s – Tourism put Orlando on the map. It made Orlando a house hold name and helped us develop an infrastructure to handle the substantial amount of tourists that visit every year (which is still improving with our massive improvement projects), but we have so much more to offer than tourism. We are becoming a leader in Simulation / Defense, Gaming, Space Tech and much more. The future is bright!
It’s great to see this article discussing the collaboration between tech and tourism.
Let’s not fight so hard to separate from tourism, but lean in together in a spirit and umbrella of innovation.
More on this topic can be found in my article encouraging Orlando to lean into our culture of innovation and move beyond the “you don’t know the half of it campaign”.
