Did you know that Orlando is the convention capital of the country? Boasting nearly 5 million square feet in meeting space including the nation’s second largest convention center. It should come as little surprise that our city hosts millions of conventioneers a year. The Orange County Convention Center is host to a majority of the convention traffic. With massive events such as IAAPA, MegaCon and IITSEC just to name a few.
Of course, when the day’s work is done, Orlando has a lot of places to play. But after a long of day of dashing between panels, treading endless exhibition halls, and glad-handing gaggles of colleagues, fighting the theme park crowds isn’t exactly the ideal way to unwind. Fortunately, ICON Park packs in all the E-ticket thrills of the big parks into a relaxed, homey environment. Whether you’ve got an evening to kill or just a few hours to sight-see, Orlando’s hometown playground is just the place for you.
Located just a few blocks north of the Orange County Convention Center on International Drive, ICON Park is ideally located near both major convention and lodging spaces. If your feet are too tired for the short walk, no worries! Just nab a cab or take the Lynx Bus and get off at the big, glowing wheel. You can’t miss it!
Whether you’re entertaining a prospective client or socializing with colleagues, ICON Park promises a memorable networking experience. ICON’s more than two dozen bars, restaurants and cafes offer distinctive menus and atmosphere. From familiar names like Buffalo Wild Wings and Yard House to exotic eateries like Tapa Toro and Mikado Japanese Restaurant, there’s a wide variety of hangouts for you and your associates to talk shop or shoot the breeze!
Let’s face the facts, most corporate team building exercises are pretty lame. After all, you can only build so many toothpick pyramids. For a memorable unique bonding experience, spare your splintered fingers and bring your co-workers over to ICON Park.
At SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology, you and your colleagues can put your crime-solving skills to the test in a private forensics workshop. Or, if you and your team are looking to take in some of the local sights, there’s no better place than from a vantage of 400 feet aboard The Wheel. Reserve a private cabin for your group and take flight on a full-circle sightseeing tour of Orlando. Add a little extra buzz of excitement by booking our Sky Bar cabin, which comes stocked with a selection of wine and beer.
If you’re looking for a place to loosen your collar after a buttoned-up day of business, look no further than ICON Park’s lively night scene. At the Tin Roof, you can grab a brew and cut loose to the beats of Orlando’s top local bands or DJs. For more laidback fun, head over to iLounge Istanbul to luxuriate in hookah and a curated wine. If you’d prefer to unwind with something on the sugary side, take your sweet tooth over to the Sugar Factory for an artisan sundae, candy goblet drink, or towering milkshake.
No matter what manner of work of play brings you to Orlando, ICON Park is the perfect escape from your convention experience!
