Who We Are
Few other regions in the U.S. can say that they’re home to the No. 1 Chamber of Commerce in the Nation. Orlando can. This year the Orlando Economic Partnership (OEP) was named the top chamber in the country by the Association for Chamber of Commerce Executives. This national distinction recognizes the OEP’s critical role as a convener and catalyst to advance the benefits of our region’s growth to everyone who lives, works, learns, and plays in Central Florida.
Seize the moment to advance
We define Broad-based Prosperity as a region whose residents live a meaningful life in a place where equal access to resources and pathways to success allow opportunities for all. Our goal is to create a region bound only by our imaginations.
Conquering Shared Challenges
Fueling Orlando’s Economy
The Orlando Economic Partnership was created with a mission in mind; to advance Broad-based Prosperity® in the Orlando region. More than any time since the advent of the tourism industry and the space race, has our region seen momentum growing from an economic perspective.
Our region has led the nation in job creation for four years in a row prior to the pandemic. We’ve seen the expansion of our strongest industries along with the emergence of a business services and technology sector.
Global brands are choosing Orlando for expansions and relocations and our story about Orlando being Unbelievably Real™ is just now being put on the global stage.
The momentum is palpable. Our future success depends empowering our region’s leaders to think long-term, have the political will to make tough decisions and invest so our region can keep up with its growth.
At the Orlando Economic Partnership, we sit at the intersection of business, government, and the independent sector.
We have an important role to play in the region and every member of our small team is counted on, from new ideas to moving tables in preparation for a regional convening.
President and CEO, Orlando Economic Partnership
