Over the last 10 days, the IDTANA-Southern Region host committee has received multiple questions on security planning for our event. The #NAIDC2016 host hotel has released this statement, in response to questions regarding security and bearing firearms on property:
Marriott International has a strict No Weapons Policy. The North American Irish Dance Championships Committee has hired an off-duty Orange County Deputy to be present throughout the events on July 1-5. In addition, the hotel has notified local law enforcement about your group and has asked that extra patrols of our property be conducted. The Orlando World Center maintains a close relationship with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and has dedicated security on duty 24 hours per day.
