2013 Winter Meetings - General Info


About Florida

On March 3, 1845, Florida became the 27th state of the United States. Nicknamed "The Sunshine State" due to its favorable climate, Florida is home to more than 19 million residents, making it the third largest state in population. The state's history is extensive, with its "founding" dating back to 1513 when Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León first spotted what today is Florida. Disney selected Orlando over several other sites for an updated version of its Disneyland Park in California. In 1971, the Magic Kingdom, the first component of the resort, opened and became Florida's best known attraction. The Orlando area became an international resort and convention destination with a wide variety of themed parks including Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, and Wet 'n Wild.
