One of the keys to Orlando's eye-popping tourist visitor count of more than 51 million yearly visitors is its phenomenal airport, Orlando International Airport (OIA), which is the 24th largest in the world in passenger traffic. Situated six miles southeast of downtown, Orlando International Airport event venues include a variety of chain hotels with meeting space, restaurants and nearby activities like championship golf.
Citywide and larger conventions in Orlando are staged at the 2.1 million-square-foot Orange County Convention Center, which is located eight miles west of OIA. But for the ultimate in reduced logistics issues, OIA's tri-level main terminal is home to the 443-room Hyatt Regency with 40,000 square feet of meeting space and amenities, such as two restaurants, a fitness gym and valet parking. Other hotel venues in Orlando International Airport's general area (less than 1.5 miles away) include the 485-room Orlando Airport Marriott with 30,000 square feet of meeting space, 353-room DoubleTree by Hilton OIA with 11,000 square feet of meeting space and 297-room Renaissance Hotel Airport with 20,000 square feet of meeting space.
Nearby Orlando International Airport event venues include some of Orlando's most popular options: Universal CityWalk Orlando, a 30-acre entertainment complex with live music, casual and fine dining, movies and shopping; and downtown Orlando, home to the Amway Center (where the NBA's Orlando Magic play) and the Church Street Station area, which is packed with nightclubs and restaurants.
For golf enthusiasts who want to play a round between meetings, there are three superb, public access golf courses within a 10-minute drive of OIA—Eagle Creek Golf Club, North Shore Golf Club and Ventura Country Club.
Situated 8 miles west of OIA, an approximate 10-minute drive via 528 West, is Florida Mall, a sprawling complex with more than 250 stores highlighted by Nordstrom, Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue and Dillard's and restaurants such as Buca di Beppo, California Pizza Kitchen, Ruby Tuesday and Salsa Taqueria & Tequila Bar.
Dining options within two miles of OIA, include Hemisphere Steak & Seafood Restaurant at the Hyatt Regency, Kafe Kalik Royal and Outback Steakhouse.
