As Mayor the the beautiful City of Orlando, I would like to extend a personal welcome to the members of the Production and Operations Management Society (POMS). Orlando is proud to have been selected as host city for your meeting place.

For those who are first time visitors, you are soon to discover that Orlando's community is rich with opportunities for recreation, cultural entertainment, educational resources, and business enterprises. You will also discover what many others have already noted -- that is when it comes to service and hospitality, Orlando is second to none.

Again, thank you for visiting our community. Orlando is dynamic, full of energy, and the heartbeat of Central Florida. I hope you enjoy learning about our city, meeting our people . . . and plan on visiting us again soon!
