5,000 Hotel Rooms and $5 Million Economic Impact Expected from American Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Championship

Local Organizing Committee for the American Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Championship.

Community leaders gathered at the historic Cheyenne Saloon in downtown Orlando on July 16 to launch the Local Organizing Committee for the American Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Championship.

The Conference will be held at the Amway Center March 10-13, 2016. The Committee, which Mayor Jacobs co-chairs with City of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, will assist in raising awareness and garnering enthusiasm to help fill the arena by promoting the upcoming championship.

This event is expected to generate approximately 5,000 room nights and more than $5 million of economic impact in Orange County.

In April, the region became the No. 1 global destination with Visit Orlando’s momentous announcement of 62 million guests visiting in 2014.

Citizens interested in attending the championship event may sign up to receive pre-sale information about tickets and travel packages before ticket sales open to the general public.
