The key to the Orange County Convention Center’s (OCCC) success is its adaptability, resiliency and flexibility. The OCCC is leading the way to provide safe events in our new normal. Through a strategic data-driven approach and deliberate planning prioritizing health and safety, the OCCC is providing controlled gatherings and unique experiences, so we can meet safely today for a stronger tomorrow.

The Florida Swimming Pool Association (FSPA) has a government affairs team who has been working with local and state governments to obtain insight on moving the Florida and FSPA  forward amid COVID-19.  On September 26 Florida Governor moved all of Florida to phase 3, lifting restrictions which were in place during the height of COVID.  The FSPA is comitted to an in-person event which allows the industry to celebrate the current boom while following safety guidelines to keep the industry safe and healthy.  Click here for information about safety protocols for the show.
