While speaking to attendees, Mayor Jacobs highlighted the Orange County Convention Center, and how the County is investing in the center and International Drive as key economic development tool.
“Our business community has worked to create a thriving business climate that welcomes capital investment and entrepreneurship,” Mayor Jacobs said. “I look forward to our work together as we continue to build a strong and prosperous community for our guests and citizens to enjoy.”
