Jacobs: Orlando now in a whole new realm of modeling and simulation


Modeling and simulation is not just about training pilots anymore, and business leaders from various industries attending Florida’s first simulation summit on Sept. 16 are making that very clear.

“We’re into a whole new realm of what modeling and simulation training is doing, from the theme park rides you go on to new horizons in the medical fields,” said Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs.

Jacobs addressed hundreds of guests attending the event at the Orange County Convention Center, filling them in on why Orlando is known as the epicenter for modeling and simulation.
