5th Annual Florida Simulation Summit Tops All Others

Posted on October 6, 2019 in General News

The 5th Annual Florida Simulation Summit was held on September 26 at the Orange County Convention Center.  As with the previous Summit's, the event was jointly presented by Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings and the Natiional Center for Simulation.  

This year's Summit was the largest ever as well over 400 attendees filled the Valencia Ballroom.  Many thanks to our planning committee, which was headed by Summit Chair Beverly Seay.  Ms. Seay, who is also the Chair of the University of Central Florida Board of Trustees, has been the event chair since it's inception in 2015.  NCS President & CEO George Cheros points out that "without our planning committee and generous sponsors, this Summit could not be a reality".  Planning committee members included representatives from several organizations including Orange County Government  (Eric Ushkowitz, Kasey Brinkley), NCS Board and members (Angela Alban, Mary Trier and Brian Levine), Orlando Economic Partnership (Sheena Fowler), UCF Incubator (Carol Ann Dykes Logue and Rob Panepinto) and Tech Match (Carlos Carbonell and Patrick Burke).
