2023 Florida Transportation, Growth & Infrastructure Solution Summit

April 19 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

Florida is growing quickly and is expected to grow by approximately 2.8 million net new residents by the year 2030. This brings both challenges and opportunities to connect Florida’s communities to one another, and to global markets, as we work to preserve the environmental and community assets that support Florida’s continued economic growth.

Does Your Company Have A Vested Interest in Securing Florida’s Infrastructure?

Join the Florida Chamber Foundation and your industry peers for the 2023 Florida Transportation, Growth & Infrastructure Solution Summit, April 19, 2023, at Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort from 9:00AM to 4:00PM. Florida’s trade, logistics, and manufacturing leaders, economic developers, land and water experts, lawmakers, and other key industry players will discuss the latest developments and solutions for achieving the Florida 2030 Blueprint’s infrastructure goals – all designed to prepare Florida’s infrastructure for smart growth and development.
