Open for opportunity

Landing a career, launching a business, transitioning out of the military — none of these are easy, but Florida’s unparalleled career and entrepreneurship resources equip you to overcome those challenges and are on full-display at the state’s official economic opportunity event for the military and veteran community: The Veterans Florida Expo.

The two-day event, hosted at Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore (2225 N Lois Ave, Tampa, FL 33607), connects veterans, transitioning servicemembers, and their families to all of Florida’s solutions to transition and professional challenges. Get expert advice at career and entrepreneurship panels and workshops, ease your transition with the first-of-its-kind Florida SkillBridge Initiative, hear success stories, network with other veterans and veteran-friendly employers at the statewide career fair, and watch our pitch competition featuring Florida’s top veteran entrepreneurs.

Florida is open for opportunity, and the Veterans Florida Expo is your chance to explore the resources and quality of life that make Florida the top state for veterans.
