Expansion project approved by County Commissioners.

“In order to remain competitive, we have to meet the needs of trade shows and conventions of today and so, it is an important part of our economic engine here within this community and it is part of a multi-billion dollar economic engine that we have,” said Mayor Jerry Demings, Orange County.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
