Mayes will be speaking at Biz Fest, providing an overall economic update, “Here, Now and Then.” Georgia Turner, Executive Director of the West Volusia Tourism Authority will give an update on tourism and trails and Dawn Roscoe from Career Source Florida will speak on “Training the Workers.”

The Deltona Business Alliance is a collaboration of Deltona business people who’s mission is to collectively improve economic development and relations between government and businesses. “The DBA appreciates the City partnering with us to help provide information and resources to our business community and this also gives us an opportunity to educate our business partners about the DBA and how to join,” said Eric Alexander, President of the Deltona Business Alliance.
