SPEAKER ANNOUNCED: Space Florida’s Frank DiBello to Discuss U.S. Space Command

By: Florida Chamber Foundation

Space Florida President Frank DiBello
Florida: The State for Space

We are pleased to welcome Space Florida’s Frank DiBello as a Summit speaker to discuss space command, job creation, and opportunities for state and local economic diversity.

According to Florida 2030 Research, Military and Defense industries generate approximately $80 billion of Florida’s economic impact and support nearly 775,000 Florida jobs. Florida is currently the 17th largest economy on the planet. To achieve our goal of becoming the 10th by 2030, we must have conversations about how the military and defense industries will play a role in this achievement. How can Florida’s businesses and policymakers support these industries and ensure they are reaching their full potential? Attracting more space companies to Florida and growing the space industry will strengthen our manufacturing sector, grow our defense alliances, and help Florida continue to lead in innovation. Florida must strengthen and improve our already existing success, but we can’t do it alone.

During our 2019 Military, Defense & Veterans Opportunities Summit, we will bring Florida’s economic development experts, policymakers, and business community together to examine the challenges and opportunities facing these crucial industries and Florida’s growing veteran population.
