Summit History

Early 2019 we hosted several hundred attendees at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at the inaugural summit. The pandemic hit in 2020 and in March 2021 - the 2nd Summit was held virtually.  We are delighted to bring the Summit back “in person” March 2022 in Tampa! View 2019 Program

 

Summit Planning

A state-wide steering committee engages key stakeholders and decision makers.  This working group determines key messages and topics for the 2022 summit.  The aim is to develop an attractive platform that enables collaboration among representatives from Florida’s key industries, professional organizations, economic development agencies, government officials, and higher education institutions.
