New venues, hotels, industries and attractions give meeting planners more reasons to choose Orlando. Opening in 2014 in the heart of the Convention District, I-Drive Live, a $200 million project, will include more than 75 shops, restaurants and attractions, including Madam Tussauds wax museum and Sea Life Aquarium. Several world-famous theme parks also have significant expansion projects in the works, including the recently opened Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin at SeaWorld Orlando; the new Transformers: The Ride - 3D and the addition of Diagon Alley at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort; and Walt Disney World Resort's New Fantasyland and the transformation of Downtown Disney into Disney Springs. Orlando also boasts the all-new, 650-acre health and life sciences park known as Lake Nona Medical City - a premier location for medical care, research and education.
