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 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 career fair, and watch our statewide pitch competition featuring Florida’s top veteran entrepreneurs.


We are thrilled to have had so much interest in this year’s Veterans Florida Expo presented by Bank of America which kicks off this Friday in Tampa! Over 400 have registered to be sponsors, exhibitors, employer representatives, career and resource seekers, entrepreneurs, and speakers.

While online registration is now closed, on-site registration will be available at the event location for veterans and separating service members to join us at the Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore beginning at 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 9, and 8 a.m. Saturday, June 10.

Check out our schedule to see all of the opportunities to network with the state’s top employers, learn more about entrepreneurship training, and how SkillBridge can provide a great training experience for separating servicemembers to begin their civilian career.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
