Tropical Storm Nicole, which could strengthen into a category 1 hurricane, appears to be approaching Orlando, Florida -- where ConnectWise is hosting the IT Nation Connect 2022 conference for MSPs on November 9-11.

Still, the storm threat has not kept MSPs away from the show. The massive keynote room was packed with MSPs on November 9, and roughly 4,700 registered to attend the show, ConnectWise said. ChannelE2E is on-site for the conference, held at the Rosen Shingle Creek resort.

Orlando Airport Updates

Still, some later-arriving attendees that are flying to Orlando on November 9 may have found some travel challenges. Chief among them: The local major airport -- Orlando International Airport -- closed on Wednesday, November 9, at 4:00 p.m. ET as a precaution ahead of the storm.

Still, Tropical Storm Nicole is forecast to become Hurricane Nicole before making landfall on Florida’s east coast early Thursday morning, November 10, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Stay tuned for continued on-site updates from ChannelE2E.
