    January 21, 2020

Dale V.C. Holness, Mayor of Broward County, will give the keynote address at the launch of Capital Analytics’ third publication focusing on Greater Fort Lauderdale. 

Broward County, FL – Broward County’s booming real estate market, powerhouse tourism sector and burgeoning startup ecosystem are just some of the focal points of the third edition of Invest: Greater Fort Lauderdale from Capital Analytics. The 2020 edition highlights the region of Greater Fort Lauderdale, including Fort Lauderdale, Plantation, Dania Beach and Hollywood, with a special focus chapter on the City of Tamarac. 

Invest: Greater Fort Lauderdale is an in-depth economic analysis that highlights business opportunities for investors, entrepreneurs and innovators in the Broward County area. These include Broward County’s commercial real estate market that remains one of the hottest in Florida, as well as the region’s residential real estate market that is attracting a variety of demographics, from millennials to retirees. Marine & Logistics are also covered in detail as the county remains the dominant force in this sector with the trade powerhouse that is Port Everglades and the city of Fort Lauderdale retaining its title as the yachting capital of the world. The publication also dives into the construction and infrastructure sectors as the economic growth for both remains strong while mitigating the effects of rising sea levels is now a top priority. 

The official launch of the publication will take place on Thursday, Jan. 30, at the Riverside Hotel. Following a short networking breakfast, Dale V.C. Holness, Mayor of Broward County, will give a keynote address that underscores some of the major achievements of Broward County’s economy over the past 12 months. This will be followed by two robust panel discussions.

The panels will address major themes currently dominating Broward County’s economy: construction and real estate development, and corporate and personal financial sustainability. Alan Hooper of Urban Street Development, James Fox of Maddox Group, Brad Meltzer of Plaza Construction and Gerald Stryker of John Knox Village will participate in the panel, “Sustainable Growth in Broward’s Construction & Real Estate Development.” Philip Rosen of Becker will moderate. The second panel, “Corporate and Personal Financial Sustainability for 2020,” will feature Tony Coley of Truist, Jeffery Klink of Valley National Bank and Michael Balter of Marcum LLP. The moderator will be Jack Miller of Capital Analytics. 

The event will be attended by hundreds of high-level guests and officials from Broward County’s key industries and economic institutions. 

“The Broward County market has not only shown unprecedented growth over the last decade but it also presents an opportunity for national and international investors alike,” said Abby Melone, president of Capital Analytics. “Broward County has been one of the strongest and most interesting market choices for our company due to this economic growth.
