FlightSimExpo 2019 also introduces Captains’ Corner, a new add-on seminar series to the packed lineup of exhibits, speakers, and activities.

FlightSim Expo 2019

One of the milestones of flight simulation and the biggest event in the world is getting ready for next year's iteration.

Here's the full press-release:

ORLANDO – November 19, 2018 – Following its sold-out first year event in Las Vegas, FlightSimExpo is coming to Orlando on June 7-9, 2019! North America’s community-driven flight simulation conference will take over Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld® for a weekend of flight simulation and aviation fun this summer.

The conference has just launched the 2019 version of www.flightsimexpo.com, which highlights some of the exciting changes planned for 2019 and presents the initial event schedule.

This year, attendees will be able to add Captains’ Corner onto their registration. This new series of education-oriented seminars will allow enthusiastic flight simmers the opportunity to interact with leading developers and learn more about the technology they know and love. Presenters from Orbx, Prepar3D, X-Plane, and more will take attendees through in-depth presentations and Q&A sessions about scenery design, simulation configuration, PC building, and hardware tweaking and tuning. The seminars take place from 12:30 – 5:15pm on Friday, June 7, and will be available as an optional add-on with attendee registration.

The main event takes place from 9:00am on Saturday, June 8 to 3:00pm on Sunday, June 9. In 2019, the show will feature a second speaker room to allow for even more interaction with flight simulation developers. Meanwhile, a larger event floor will welcome more exhibitors with interactive exhibits including virtual reality displays and landing competitions. Of course, the event will still feature a social event—with free appetizers and drinks—on Saturday beginning at 5:30pm.

In 2019, FlightSimExpo is proud to announce a new series of partnerships with leading flight simulation developers Aerosoft, Navigraph, Orbx, PMDG, Prepar3D, SimMarket, and X-Plane. As Diamond Sponsors, these developers play an important role in the sustainability of this conference. The event looks forward to introducing developers of all sizes to its 2019 Exhibitor & Sponsor Opportunities: visit www.flightsimexpo.com for more information on how to get involved as an exhibitor, sponsor, or speaker!

For conference attendees, registration begins in December, with a very limited number of $50 Advance Registration tickets available. Attendees can subscribe online now to receive an email notification when Advance Registration opens.

Attendees already making plans to attend can book hotel rooms now and find out more information about travel discounts from WestJet, Delta Airlines, and Lyft at www.flightsimexpo.com. The conference has also partnered with Visit Orlando to offer attendees discounts and deals at over 70 restaurants and attractions through the Show your Badge and Save program.
