October is going to be an exciting month with plenty of opportunities for our community to get out and connect with each other and the world. From book readings at the Tamarac Library such as the literary event hosted by Kingston Guy on Mario Cartaya’s book “Journey Back into the Vault” In Search of My Faded Cuban Childhood Footprints, to community events hosted throughout District 3. It will be great to enjoy these happenings with the community.
Broward County is hosting the 7th Annual Florida International Trade and Cultural Expo (FITCE) at the Broward County Convention Center on October 19-20. FITCE brings together national leaders, businesses, and entrepreneurs from around the world right to Broward County. This is a great opportunity for local businesses across the spectrum to connect and grow through showcasing goods and services that they can provide. I look forward to welcoming everyone to this year's FITCE Expo, and I look forward to showcasing Broward to the world.
The strategic partnership between Nova Southeastern University, and Broward County is paying dividends for the community. The Levan Center at NSU is hosting Innovation Day this month and I am honored to participate. This day focuses on entrepreneurship, cyber security, and smart cities. I look forward to speaking on how Broward County is focused on strategic planning in initiatives for the future, and how these strategies guide the county today. This is essential for a bright future for our economy and community.
On October 13th, Visit Lauderdale will announce its new brand campaign. The new branding images, and tag lines are important as we continue our outreach to visitors from near and far. Heard in commercials in the winter up north, an image in an online ad, or a hashtag on twitter, the new campaign will showcase our community to potential visitors, conventions, and major sporting events that have a huge economic impact in our community. I look forward to working with the Tourist Development Council, and Convention and Visitor's Bureau to showcase all that Broward County has to offer to the world.
