Invest: Tampa Bay to highlight economic opportunities in the region

September 4, 2018

TAMPA, FL — Following the success of its South Florida annual business guides, Invest: Miami and Invest: Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County, Capital Analytics is setting its sights on Florida’s west coast to launch Invest: Tampa Bay in 2019. Innovation is a focal point for Tampa Bay’s inaugural report, the first of an annual series that will underline and assess key issues and opportunities in the Tampa Bay market.

Invest: Tampa Bay will feature insights gleaned from one-on-one, in-person discussions with over 200 C-level executives, tackling the high-impact stories unfolding in the Tampa Bay business community, including the area’s emergence as a tech hub, its strong housing market and its innovative waterfront redevelopment. The report will cover all of the main sectors of Tampa Bay’s economy, such as healthcare, life sciences, education, real estate, technology, banking and finance, tourism, manufacturing, trade and logistics, aviation, transportation and sports.

“Tampa is a natural extension for our Florida division,” said Abby Melone, president of Capital Analytics.  “The metro area is the second-largest economy in the state, making it an ideal location for us to point international investment. The continued growth of opportunities in the Tampa Bay market make it an ideal place for the company’s newest operation.”

The production of Invest: Tampa Bay is underway as the Capital Analytics team has already connected with many high-profile industry leaders in the area. It will be the region’s first and most comprehensive report on the city’s dynamic business climate. Currently in its fifth year of publishing the well-read and highly praised Invest: Miami, Capital Analytics has begun to expand into markets both in and outside of its home state of Florida.

“Tampa Bay is an exciting place to be right now. Investment is at an all-time high, the real estate market is booming and there’s so much commercial redevelopment going on, it’s hard to keep up. Invest: Tampa Bay will keep that momentum going by giving the city’s top executives in all of the major sectors a forum to let the world know why Tampa is such a great place to do business,” said Jaime Muehl, managing editor of Capital Analytics.

With the report expected to launch in the spring of 2019, a number of key players in Tampa Bay’s business community have already expressed their praise and excitement to be included.

The team will be led by Executive Director Alex Wilkinson and Editorial Manager Jordan Blumetti. Wilkinson brings with her an extensive background in business development, while Blumetti, a skilled writer and journalist, will oversee the composition of the guide on the ground. This powerhouse duo is excited to create a high-quality report that showcases the “Tampa Bay Way.”
