Community and business leaders gather to cut the ribbon at the Hispanic Business Conference.

Hispanic Business Conference Welcomes Hundreds of Business Leaders to Orange County


The Hispanic Business Conference is hosted by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando (HCCMO) and focuses on enhancing economic development and expanding business opportunities for local entrepreneurs. It also is charged with educating, motivating, and creating more opportunities for entrepreneurs, leaders and business professionals.

Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings joined HCCMO leaders to kick off the Hispanic Business Conference with a celebratory ribbon cutting ceremony on May 22, 2019 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel on International Drive.

Conference attendees participated in two days of sessions featuring national distinguished business speakers, economic development, and digital marketing experts.The group also heard legislative updates and attended a luncheon with up to 400 business leaders from across Central Florida.

“Orange County Government is committed to attract and support small- and medium-sized businesses to the region,” said Mayor Demings. “The diversity of our Central Florida population is one of our key strengths. Since 2017, more than 30 percent of our population consists of Hispanic residents. The Hispanic and Latino community are essential to Orange County’s success.”

“The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is grateful for the support Mayor Demings and Orange County Commissioners give to the Hispanic and other minority-owned businesses. Having government and the private sector working together, provides more economic development for our region,” said HCCMO President Gaby Ortigoni.
