Over the last year, Florida has been active and kept live events going throughout the pandemic. Unlike other
states’ guidelines for trade shows and gatherings, Florida has had the least restrictive regulations in place, allowing in-person events to continue. Orlando is the one of top destinations for trade shows and this year is no exception. Several annual live events are back this year, with some new ones making the move to this fair city.
