Community leaders, state influencers and legislators gathered in the state’s Capitol for Northwest Florida Days, an event showcasing the region’s economic impact.
Northwest Florida had a 69% growth rate for domestic visitors, the highest out of the eight tourism regions in Florida. This was more than double the growth rate of the Southwest region.
“Through a networking reception, legislative appreciation breakfast and recognition opportunities at the Capitol, Northwest Florida’s leaders representing economic development, small business and tourism are making a statement about the impact we bring to the rest of the state,” said Jennifer Conoley, CEO of Florida’s Great Northwest.
