Florida Chamber Annual Meeting & Future of Florida Forum

October 27 @ 8:00 am - October 28 @ 2:00 pm EDT

Magic is happening in Florida!

Florida is open for business, and by uniting the business community for good, we can move Florida from – what is now – the 15th to the 10th largest economy in the world by 2030… now that’s magic!

We cordially invite you to join us for the premier Florida Chamber Foundation event of the year as Florida’s top business leaders, elected officials, community and education advocates connect on aligning education and training with workforce needs, the state of the current and future economy, the future of transportation and infrastructure, trade and logistics, innovation, tourism, legislation, the brand of Florida and much more. 

Want in on the magic? This event will feature engaging presentations, unique networking opportunities, and insight from leading voices in Florida and across the nation. These are conversations you won’t want to miss as you establish business plans for the years ahead!
