2020 Florida Simulation Summit

Event Details


ABOUT THE SUMMIT - Wednesday, October 28, 2020 | 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Florida Simulation Summit is a collaborative partnership between Orange County Government, the National Center for Simulation and the Orlando Economic Partnership. The summit highlights the strong progress, synergy and development of Central Florida’s multibillion-dollar Modeling, Simulation and Training (MS&T) industry as a showcase to the state, nation and beyond. The industry has strong roots in the defense sector and over time has diversified into other clusters such as life sciences, healthcare, sports, gaming and engineering.


For the first time, Florida Simulation Summit will be a fully digital event, with keynote speakers and industry experts discussing how Central Florida can harness the region’s MS&T expertise to tackle present and future challenges.
