    ORLANDO – July 19, 2018 – FlightSimExpo is pleased to announce that after a successful inaugural event in Las Vegas, the second annual community-driven flight simulation conference will land in Orlando on June 7-9, 2019.

    Orlando, one of America’s most visitor-oriented and family-friendly cities, is a top event destination with a wide variety of nearby activities and attractions. The city boasts many domestic and international flight options and is also home to several civilian and military aviation simulation and training facilities.

    “We are proud to have based our location on input from developers, exhibitors, attendees, and the flight simulation community,” says Phil Coyle. “In a recent Twitter poll, Orlando was voted the best location for 2019, consistent with feedback we’ve received from those who joined us in Las Vegas in 2018.”

    The 2019 event venue is Renaissance Orlando, a Marriott hotel. Located next to one of Orlando’s historic theme parks, minutes from International Drive and Pointe Orlando, Renaissance Orlando offers an incredible atmosphere for the 2019 event. With great room rates, excellent on-site and nearby food options, and a focus on hospitality, organizers are excited to be working with Renaissance Orlando this year.

    “When I was on site a few weeks ago, it was clear the venue is a great fit for FlightSimExpo,” says Evan Reiter, one of the conference’s co-founders. “Food is made from scratch in-house, the ballrooms are beautiful, there is a pool, arcade, and outdoor game spaces…really, it’s going to make for a fantastic event!”

    In 2018 in Las Vegas, FlightSimExpo welcomed more than 1,100 attendees, along with 45 exhibitors and 21 speakers. Developers in attendance included Orbx, 1C Game Studios, FlyJSim, PILOT’S, REX Simulations, X-Plane, Aerosoft, Infinite Flight, NATCA, Navigraph, PilotEdge, ProSim, simFlight/simMarket, and many more. FlightSimExpo looks forward to hosting even more simmers and developers in 2019.

    Conference registration for the June 2019 event will open in December, with Advance Registration starting at the same low price as in 2018.

    FlightSimExpo encourages our attendees to stay in touch! We’re publishing video of each of the event seminars, along with interviews and stories from the 2018 event. Visit us on Facebook, Twitter, or our newly-created YouTube channel to see why you should join us in Orlando in 2019!

    Just made my hotel reservations--can't wait!

    Great! Glad to see you'll be joining us.

    Did you make a reservation with our host hotel, or are you staying somewhere else? Only reason I'm asking is because if you are staying with us, our special group rate link isn't available yet, and you would most likely be paying more (for less) if you are staying at Renaissance Orlando without using our group discount.

    Thanks for the advice!  I'm a Marriott Rewards Member, so I can use some points.  When your link comes out, I"ll see if that's a better rate at the Rennaisance.

    I was really hoping that Vegas would be a fixed location for the event. Orlando has some nice attractions, but Vegas has "so" much more to do given that I have to travel a good distance to make these events. I hope to see the Expo revisit "Vegas" again in the future.
