Google to sponsor Sayfie Review’s Florida Leaders Summit

in Statewide/Top Headlines by

Justin Sayfie, publisher of the Sayfie Review, announced Monday Internet search giant Google will help underwrite its upcoming Florida Leaders Summit confab in Orlando.

Announcing the recently reorganized Internet behemoth as a “Gulf Sponsor,” Sayfie wrote on his news aggregation site that “Google’s generous sponsorship will help provide all Summit attendees with an exceptional Summit experience.”

Sayfie billed the event, now in its third consecutive year, as an “invitation-only, nonpartisan event for Florida’s top leaders, modeled after the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.”

Sayfie recently announced a list of 11 “thought leadership partners” whose proposals and ideas will inform the conference, such as the AIF Foundation, Leroy Collins Institute, and The James Madison Institute.

Attendees of the first two Sayfie Review powwows have included former Florida Gov. and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, publisher Arianna Huffington, CNN host Fareed Zakaria, futurist Ray Kurzweil and legislative presiding officers Speaker Steve Crisafulli and President Andy Gardiner.

Sayfie’s lobbying shop represents Google in Tallahassee as a client before state officials.

The event is set for November 16-17 in Orlando. The publication says that further details regarding the setting and program of the summit will be forwarded to invitees this fall.
