The Rosen Plaza Hotel
in Orlando has opened a new skybridge connecting it to the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), Rosen Hotels & Resorts announced last week. The $2.5 million skybridge, the Gary Sain Memorial Skybridge, is dedicated to the late Gary Sain, former president and CEO of Visit Orlando, who died last year.
"It is with great honor and respect that we dedicate this skybridge to my friend and colleague Gary Sain," Rosen Hotels & Resorts President and COO Harris Rosen said in a statement. "Gary worked tirelessly to build and strengthen this destination during his time with us. Rest assured, Gary's legacy continues here today."
The new skybridge, which extends 745 feet, was built in just over three months and will provide meetings attendees with a safe, weather-proof and traffic-free "commute" from their guest room to the convention center. It is the fourth and final skybridge connecting International Drive hotels to the OCCC.
"We're excited to now offer this pedestrian skybridge from our hotel to the convention center for our meetings guests," said Victoria Hall, director of sales and marketing at the Rosen Plaza. "This is an incredible new benefit to meeting planners and an important milestone in the Orlando meetings community now that all four major convention hotels are connected to the convention campus."
