Orlando Competes for the Star Wars Convention

Mon, Jul 28, 2008 at 3:57PM

Star Wars fans may be gathering in Orlando for Celebration V which will be a four-day event at the Orange County Convention Center.  Orlando is competing with Minneapolis, Chicago, Indianapolis an Baltimore.  A decision as to where the convention will take place could be made within 6 months. The event was held in Los Angeles last year and attracted about 30,000 of the Star Wars buffs.  A convention of that size would have an economic impact of approximately $36 million and would be one of the largest conventions in the Orlando area.
