The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) has announced its newest Gold Key partnership with Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The three-year agreement between the two entities will offer exposure to members, exhibitors, and attendees visiting the OCCC through a range of sales and marketing channels, allowing them to build relationships and host events off-site.

“The [OCCC]’s Gold Key partnership with Walt Disney World will greatly enhance our mission and support our clients’ events in our destination,” says OCCC Executive Director Mark Tester in a prepared statement. “Walt Disney World’s premier resources and offerings will be extremely valuable for our customers, exhibitors, and sponsors.”

Disney Meetings & Events offers meeting planners and attendees access to world-renowned venues, immersive experiences, and creative resources that bring clients’ events to the next level. From customized private events at Disney to full-scale productions at the OCCC, “the possibilities are endless when working with Disney’s legendary creativity, storytelling, and attention to detail.”

Walt Disney World Gatherings Vice President Ramiro Vasquez said the organization is thrilled to work alongside the OCCC, infusing the magic of Disney into the conferences and conventions coming to Florida. “Event planners and exhibitors will have full access to exclusive benefits and world-class Disney entertainment, production, and creative resources onsite at the Orange County Convention Center or at our Walt Disney World theme park,” Vasquez says.
