Lunch & Learn: The Economic Impact of the Port of Palm Beach May 31, 2018 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM (EST)


The Port of Palm Beach is the fourth busiest container port of Florida’s 14 deepwater ports and is the 18th busiest container port in the United States. The Port of Palm Beach and its tenants combine to be one of the larger employers in Palm Beach County and is an economic engine for the county. Approximately 2,400 people are employed directly and indirectly because of the port, which contributes $260 million in business revenue and $12 million in state and federal taxes. Over $7 billion worth of commodities moves through the port each year. Please join us Thursday, May 31 and learn from a panel of experts on the economic impact the Port of Palm Beach has on our area, and have a chance to tour the amazing Grand Classica Cruise Ship from Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line.
