From the Chair & President

We are very excited to off er you the first issue of EVOLVE Business &   Professional Magazine!  EVOLVE is a business-to-business magazine that is focused on you—the businesses that drive the success of the Daytona Beach Region.  EVOLVE highlights area businesses, provides insights on successful business strategies, and showcases the benefits of doing business in our region.

The magazine reflects the quality of businesses and organizations that have chosen to call the Daytona Beach Region home. Our area is well-known for its beachside amenities and the “World’s Most Famous Beach”, the World Center of Racing at Daytona International Speedway®, the annual motorcycle events, and the convention business.  We are also home to many corporate headquarters, quality educational institutions, distribution centers, manufacturing, and retail destinations. Our community is evolving, and so is our economic footprint.  We embrace our history and recognize that our unique combination of a business-friendly atmosphere and a diverse mix of economic opportunities is what also attracts new investments and interests. Daytona Beach and Volusia County are on the map and open for business!

With each quarterly issue of EVOLVE, we will tell our story.  A story of why this area is great for business.  With feature articles from area experts filled with practical advice on how to succeed in business, information on current trends, and news about what’s happening in our region, this publication will be the business magazine that people will – want to – read from cover to cover.

As the lead business organization in the region, representing nearly 1,100 businesses, the Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce believes this magazine will be the start of an important rebirth of our brand as an organization focused on relevance and professionalism; but more importantly we believe it will help businesses like yours expand their reach while attracting new clients.

Enjoy your new magazine, EVOLVE.  We look forward to your continued support and readership.
