Each year, the Orlando EDC brings together local business and community leaders for a night of networking, BBQ and fun. This year the Orlando EDC’s BBQ on the Blvd on Nov. 4th will debut the Tech Tent, to celebrate the recent exponential growth of Orlando’s tech scene with a few local tech companies.
