Steve Morey, Vice President of Business Development, will begin with a brief overview of the Tampa area’s business climate, demographics, workforce, quality of life, and other competitive intelligence. You’ll learn about the target industries that are shaping the future of the region, and the opportunities within key sectors such as financial and professional services; manufacturing; logistics and distribution; information technology; life sciences; and defense and security.
