I can help in deciding the best virtual technology strategy for your event. If you are evaluating virtual event platform selection, I can help to make the right decision.
we recently wrote the second edition of the Good Event Registration guide. The report helps you compare hundreds of registration providers and it's free to download http://eventmb.com/ReGGuide2015
Choosing a registration platform is a vey delicate decision. There are a lot of considerations to be made that can make or break your event.
Many platforms also offer discounts and free options for not for profit events.
If you are looking for a WordPress solution, you can look into http://showthemes.com that offers integration with WooCommerce or Gravity Forms.
When it gets to event registration there is no one size fits all solution. It depends on your event type, numbers, ticket price.
Get in touch if you have any questions.
It really depends on the type of venue you are going for. There are a number of online Request for Proposal (RFP) platforms that allow you to send your event to a number of venues in a specific area and get quotes. I would ask them directly and compare quotes.
Some general considerations: Orlando is not Columbus. It is a very sought after destination and it has a much more structured hospitality industry. That can mean higher prices (or incredible bargains if you are smart with your calendar).
Also consider where attendees are travelling from and what is most convenient.
Get in touch if you have any question.
Starting out with a brand new event is never easy. Congrats on your new venture.
I don't have enough elements to comment on and general advice may be misleading.

Let me know if you have specific questions.
