ORLANDO – July 19, 2018 – FlightSimExpo is pleased to announce that after a successful inaugural event in Las Vegas, the second annual community-driven flight simulation conference will land in Orlando on June 7-9, 2019.

Orlando, one of America’s most visitor-oriented and family-friendly cities, is a top event destination with a wide variety of nearby activities and attractions. The city boasts many domestic and international flight options and is also home to several civilian and military aviation simulation and training facilities.

“We are proud to have based our location on input from developers, exhibitors, attendees, and the flight simulation community,” says Phil Coyle. “In a recent Twitter poll, Orlando was voted the best location for 2019, consistent with feedback we’ve received from those who joined us in Las Vegas in 2018.”

The 2019 event venue is Renaissance Orlando, a Marriott hotel. Located next to one of Orlando’s historic theme parks, minutes from International Drive and Pointe Orlando, Renaissance Orlando offers an incredible atmosphere for the 2019 event. With great room rates, excellent on-site and nearby food options, and a focus on hospitality, organizers are excited to be working with Renaissance Orlando this year.

“When I was on site a few weeks ago, it was clear the venue is a great fit for FlightSimExpo,” says Evan Reiter, one of the conference’s co-founders. “Food is made from scratch in-house, the ballrooms are beautiful, there is a pool, arcade, and outdoor game spaces…really, it’s going to make for a fantastic event!”

In 2018 in Las Vegas, FlightSimExpo welcomed more than 1,100 attendees, along with 45 exhibitors and 21 speakers. Developers in attendance included Orbx, 1C Game Studios, FlyJSim, PILOT’S, REX Simulations, X-Plane, Aerosoft, Infinite Flight, NATCA, Navigraph, PilotEdge, ProSim, simFlight/simMarket, and many more. FlightSimExpo looks forward to hosting even more simmers and developers in 2019.

Conference registration for the June 2019 event will open in December, with Advance Registration starting at the same low price of just $50 for the whole weekend.

FlightSimExpo encourages our attendees to stay in touch! We’re publishing video of each of the event seminars, along with interviews and stories from the 2018 event. Visit us on Facebook, Twitter, or our newly-created YouTube channel to see why you should join us in Orlando in 2019!


Nice! I might be able to come


High Fares and Lots of Traffic… Fun

@schyllberg want to go to Disney?


I will be there with some of the IFAE/GAF Leadership!

Maybe we can find a helicopter to go fly in ;)


Great…another one I can’t go to. It’s always Florida, California, or Vegas. It’s never anywhere else, and it’s killing me because the airfares are always through the roof. Can’t anyone go anywhere else?


Sadly, I won’t be able to visit next year. My dad said we would go if they picked any of the other options but they didn’t. There is still a very small slim chance that I still might be able to come, but the chicness are really low.

@Balloonchaser pretty much why i’m not going to expensive and too much disney


I really want to attend and meet all the FDS! It will definitely be up on my list of things to do in 2019! Hope to come!!


This is an expo I might actually be able to attend along with my yearly vacation! I can’t wait to fly down to Orlando from Minneapolis.


Hopefully I can come. I don’t know for sure though.

I just hope to make it this time. Florida has been on my family’s thoughts for a vacation for a while.


Ooo I’m thinking XC in a Chrokee 6. See ya next year Orlando!

Coming for sure, it will happen I promise you. I will be in Central Florida at the time of the event. Can’t wait to show up and meet the Infinite Flight team and see other awesome community members.

Cheers everyone!


USD$192 per night all in for the cheapest room, okay then. I’ll still make an effort to make it.
