Embassy Suites Downtown Orlando
191 E Pine Street, Orlando, FL 32801

Safe and vibrant places to socialize represent the key to unlock your city's nighttime economy assets.

But the nighttime economy is not just based on revenue from restaurants, cafes, tap rooms, taverns, brew pubs and music venues.

The nighttime economy is also comprised of diverse daytime businesses. Restaurants rely on distributors and suppliers of food and beverages. Trash pick-up is critical for maintaining pest control. Nighttime businesses also use insurance agents, accountants and banks. They promote themselves through writers, graphic designers and media. Nightlife patrons buy special outfits and spa services in preparation for going out. They may take a train, bus or taxi to get to their destination.

Sociability is an engine driving both day and night businesses

Regardless of city size, neighborhoods and downtowns are the epicenter of social activity, through fairs, festivals and dining and entertainment districts.

Build a team and come to downtown Orlando, an excellent case study of vibrant social spaces in a variety of distinct neighborhoods. The program features speakers representing hospitality and nightlife, public safety and police, local regulatory and advocacy. Faculty will guide you through a process to assess your town or city's sociability and provide the tools to make your nightlife vibrant and safe.
