Orlando Economic Forum

The Orlando Economic Forum is an initiative of the Orlando Economic Partnership. Comprised of local industry leaders, the Forum meets quarterly to discuss both current economic conditions and issues of regional significance in the four-county Orlando Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). The Forum's signature publication, Orlando Insight, reflects those discussions and draws from the most recent data available at time of preparation.
