Join Orange County Government, National Center for Simulation, and our Host Sponsor, Duke Energy, for the 2023 Florida Simulation Summit at the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport on Wednesday, May 10, 2023.

Now in its eighth year, the Florida Simulation Summit highlights the strong progress, synergy, and development of the Orlando region’s multi-billion-dollar modeling, simulation, and training (MS&T) industry. Our region likes to showcase the ease of collaboration between businesses, researchers, and the military, which is one of the major reasons it is recognized as an epicenter for the MS&T industry.

The National Center for Simulation — with government, academic, and 345 plus industry members — is committed to promoting modeling and simulation technology expansion, supporting education and workforce development, and providing business development support to our members.

As such, we are looking forward to promoting what we feel is the next big expansion of our ecosystem with the continual push toward the digital transformation of our economy. No matter what sector you work in — cyber, defense, energy, finance, gaming, healthcare, homeland security, manufacturing, optics, photonics, space, or transportation — the addition of sensors, artificial intelligence, and machine learning is transforming the way we do business. When done correctly, the collection, storage, distribution, consumption, and protection of data are making the return on investment of the digital transformation too big for companies to ignore.

Following this year’s summit program, attendees have the option to tour the new Brightline Fast Train!

Register today for the 2023 Florida Simulation Summit!
