Orlando in the Spring
It's cheap to fly and stay in Orlando, and if you want to combine this with a family vacation, there are a large variety of things to see and do. It's a good time to visit Disney, Sea World, and many other attractions in the area. It will be sunny, warm, and provide a hint of the summer that will be coming to the rest of the country.
Come enjoy a great conference in a sunny, relaxing location and meet the SQLServerCentral team.
