The Powering Florida Illumination event, developed in partnership with Enterprise Florida and Florida Power & Light, is designed to connect Florida’s economic development professionals with the country’s top corporate real estate executives and site selection consultants. Participants in Illumination experienced an unparalleled opportunity to connect and interact with site selection consultants and corporate real estate executives in a small group setting. Chris Wimsatt and Matt Chesnut attended on behalf of Team Volusia EDC and were joined by Rob Ehrhardt, Director of the Volusia County Division of Economic Development. The compressed schedule minimized time and ensured adequate opportunity to form strong business relationships, freely exchange information and accelerate knowledge of the topics presented. Seven Illumination panelists agreed to fully participate in the entire event, including networking and serving on educational panels.
