About Orlando

Resort Accommodations

Orlando is a vacation wonderland for families and an important hub for conferences worldwide. That makes it one of the easiest destination cities to reach, and the returning location for our Florida Global Gathering.

While the rest of the country is experiencing the onset of winter, summer temperatures continue in Orlando. In December you can expect average daytime temperatures around 73 degrees (23º C) and average low temperatures around 51 degrees (11º C). It is simply delightful.


Because this year’s event is so close to the holiday season, we anticipate that hotel accommodations will be largely pre-booked, so we encourage you to make your reservations as early as possible!

Airport Information

Please book your flight into Orlando International Airport (MCO)
