About Us

Founded in 2013 with the generous support of Orange County and J.P. Morgan Chase, the Central Florida International Trade Office (CFITO) provides a single location to connect with a variety of resources to accelerate international trade in Central Florida! Our region is home to over 2 million residents, and represents a vibrant business community and a climate that is bathed in sunshine. We receive over 50 million visitors per year, and are conveniently located in the “I-4 Corridor” between the Port of Tampa and Port Canaveral. Orlando is really in the center of it all!

The CFITO resides in the National Entrepreneur Center which houses a variety of business support organizations to serve our business community.

Our office is designed to accelerate the access and activity for international traders in Central Florida including Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, and Volusia counties. Metro Orlando is dedicated to strengthening Central Florida’s position as a world-class center of international trade, in a region that already hosts the largest number of visitors in the United States. By accelerating access to our existing resources, providing relevant connections, highlighting our region’s superior infrastructure, and emphasizing our collaborative approach to business development, the Central Florida International Trade Office is well positioned to engage international trade opportunities for both the importers and exporters who wish to do business in Central Florida.
