About the Northwest Florida Leadership Forum

The Northwest Florida Leadership Forum is a public service organization bringing together regional business leaders, economic development agencies and organizations, military base officials, and local, state, and federal government leaders to provide solutions for the economic development of Northwest Florida. We work closely with regional business leaders, government officials, military base officials, chambers of commerce, economic development agencies, colleges and universities, nonprofit organizations; and professional associations.

Northwest Florida Leadership Roundtable

The Northwest Florida Leadership Roundtable is an invitation-only focus group discussion (no formal presentations, no audience) with Summit speakers and other special guests. Real issues and challenges will be discussed with military, government, Congressional, and industry leaders while generating possible solutions in real-time. Summit attendees can submit questions in advance. A brief summary of the discussion will be provided to all Summit attendees by the Summit Moderator at the beginning of the Day 1 afternoon General Session.

Matchmaking Session

The Matchmaking Session is an opportunity to participate in one-on-one meetings with representatives from various government agencies, contracting officials, financing sources, and prime contractors, with the purpose to facilitate targeted information exchange and match needs with resources and solutions. A list of matchmaking table hosts will be provided prior to each event via email to only registered attendees. Session sign-up is available ON-SITE ONLY at each Summit near the registration area. Matchmaking session sign-up is first come, first serve. Meetings are not scheduled in advance due to no-shows, last minute changes, etc. Inquire about hosting opportunities via email:
