    Orlando, Florida-just mention the name and a hundred “magical” images come

    to mind: bright, sunny weather, world-class attractions like Walt Disney

    World and Universal Studios, an incredible variety of shopping and dining

    options, sports and recreational opportunities ranging from golf to

    professional basketball, and evening entertainment possibilities to suit

    all ages and tastes. Orlando truly has it all!

    SITE 2001 will be held at the Holiday Inn International Drive Resort,

    conveniently located just minutes from all of Orlando’s attractions. With

    shuttle, attraction tickets and on-site car rental available through the

    hotel’s concierge services, a 13-acre resort with courtyard, sun deck and a

    fitness center, a beautiful heated pool, and a wide selection of cafes and

    restaurants in the hotel, SITE 2001 participants will have no trouble

    finding wonderful ways to spend their free time!

    Disney’s many parks include The Magic Kingdom, EPCOT Center, MGM Studios,

    and water parks like Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. Also nearby are

    Universal Studios of Florida, Sea World of Florida, and the Wet ‘n Wild

    Water Park.

    Orlando is a shopper’s paradise. From high-end malls like the Altamonte, to

    outlet malls like Belz Factory Outlet World, to boutiques like The Mercado.

    And Orlando is home to nearly 100 golf courses. Tennis and racquet sports,

    fishing, boating and water skiing abound.

    Orlando boasts some of the best nighttime entertainment in the country. At

    Disney’s Pleasure Island you can find almost every type of music and

    entertainment imaginable…from a comedy club to nightclubs to suit any

    taste including country-western, Top 40’s, beach music, a 70’s disco, and a

    jazz club. In downtown Orlando, Church Street Station offers blocks of fun

    in an old-time style. Rosie O’Grady’s features a Dixieland Revue. Commander

    Ragtime’s is an old-fashioned circus midway. The Exchange Shopping Emporium

    is a Victorian shopping pavilion featuring more than 40 unique stores. The

    dining, dancing and fun-for singles, couples or families-are beyond compare.

    Within a few hours drive of Orlando you can find the Kennedy Space Center,

    the famous Cypress Gardens, spring-training baseball, and beaches, beaches,

    beaches. It’s not just a conference……..it’s a vacation! So plan to join

    us in Orlando for SITE 2001-a great conference in one of the world’s

    greatest tourist destinations.
