The Pageant

National Pageant

2018 Host City: Orlando, Florida

Orlando has evolved from the hub of Florida’s citrus industry in the 19th century to a mecca for tourism in the 20th century. Orlando’s regional leaders have worked diligently in recent years to diversify Orlando’s economy to create a new breed of high-tech, high-wage careers for residents in cutting edge industries such as digitalmedia and technology, life sciences and modeling, simulation and training. Today, Orlando is a global leader in the 21st century innovation economy. Home to warm weather, theme parks and much more Orlando will provide an amazing host for the 2018 American Pageants National Event.
