Invest: Orlando offers economic insight in a time of uncertainty

AUGUST 4, 2020


ORLANDO, FLA – Capital Analytics’ in-depth research into the Orlando market has never been more important. As the region navigates through the largest economic shock it has experienced in decades, Invest: Orlando 2020, the latest in Capital Analytics’ annual series of business reports, offers comprehensive business intelligence during this time of economic uncertainty. With 120 pages of thoroughly researched analysis, the inaugural edition of Invest: Orlando 2020 highlights the opportunities in the Orlando Metro Area economy through C-level insider insights and key business intelligence. Orlando is known for its aerospace, technology, life sciences and healthcare, real estate, and its reputation as a major tourism hub. The City Beautiful is poised to continue its growth and economic diversification even through current coronavirus-related challenges. In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity. The challenges and impact of the pandemic are just some of the focal points in this edition of Invest: Orlando. The 2020 edition highlights Orange County and beyond, including parts of Osceola County, such as Kissimmee and St. Cloud.“Many of the interviews in Invest: Orlando 2020 were conducted prior to the pandemic’s outbreak, but we have endeavored to reflect recent events throughout our editorial. Those interviewees who were able to comment on the potential long-term impact agree that the U.S. economy remains resilient, and most are optimistic that any downturn will be relatively short-lived. The economy’s underlying strength, many business leaders believe, will give greater growth over the long term,” said Abby Melone, president of Capital Analytics.

Now more than ever, information is not only necessary, it is vital. Invest: Orlando 2020 dives deep into the top economic sectors in the Orlando Metro Area. The business report features exclusive insights from industry leaders, sector insiders, elected officials and heads of important institutions, brought together for a comprehensive release. It analyzes the leading challenges facing the market and uncovers emerging opportunities for investors, entrepreneurs and innovators.

Over seven months, the Capital Analytics team conducted extensive research and interviewed over 200 high-profile industry leaders, including Buddy Dyer, mayor for the City of Orlando; Besty Eckbert, president and CEO of Winter Park Chamber of Commerce; and Craig Ustler, president of Ustler Development. Through their research, the Capital Analytics team identified significant business insights that will serve as important knowledge benchmarks for investors, entrepreneurs and innovators. The publication’s comprehensive report on Orlando’s business climate remains steadfast in its purpose to deliver in-depth insights. 

“Over the course of our extensive research period, we were given the ability to truly peel back the curtain and discover what has gone into making Orlando the hotbed for investment, tourism and development that it has become. What we found was that this economy has not only flourished thanks to cross-sector collaboration but also because of thoughtfully calculated community efforts to raise Orlando’s status as a preeminent destination for both economic and social prosperity,” said Max Crampton-Thomas, regional editor of Capital Analytics.
