Florida’s economic development partnerships will have the opportunity to showcase their communities to potential investors worldwide and to directly connect with them in real-time via the Select Florida platform. There will also be testimonials from foreign companies who have invested in Florida, and special attention will be paid, not just on how to invest in the state, but also to the reasons why to invest in Florida..
“With the success of EFI’s Florida International Trade Expo, we realised the enormous impact and reach that is possible in the virtual space, and we look forward to continuing to build business connection through the Select Florida Expo,” said TJ Villamil, Senior Vice President of International Trade & Development of Enterprise Florida, Inc. “This expo, led by EFI’s talented international trade and development team, will provide a worldwide platform to highlight Florida’s diverse communities and business advantages.”

Partners include EFI’s primary memorandum of understanding economic development partners at the local/regional level, as well as universities and research institutes, technology and business associations, and statewide partners like Space Florida.
