We're committed to creating meaningful shared experiences in the core of our city.

One of our goals in our partnership with the City of Orlando and the Downtown Development board is to bring new programming and audiences to Downtown. We want to introduce these audiences to you! 

The information you provide below will help us connect patrons to what you do!

This information will be added to our website and app.

Live entertainment and/or interactive art experiences during the IMMERSE event are a great way to engage patrons with your brand.

For example, in 2018 : 

  • Ember is creating an interactive, large-scale mural. They will then invite guests to participate in painting the mural.

  • Wall St Plaza is serving as an outdoor performance venue with live entertainment.

  • The Church St District will be a home for live performance programming.

  • We’re collaborating with Deeply Coffee to co-host a live screen printing event leading up to IMMERSE.

These creative programming options provide guests who are looking for interesting, artful experiences a reason to engage these Downtown pillars.
