Amazon Executives Visiting Miami Soon On HQ2 Fact Finding Mission

Executives from Amazon will be in Miami very soon to study the possibility of locating their second headquarters here.

According to the SFBJ, Miami leaders will host Amazon executives on an HQ2 fact-finding mission “within weeks.”

Amazon has already requested additional information from Miami officials. The company is also asking for confidentiality, Miami mayor Francis Suarez said in a CNBC interview.

Miami has a strong chance of landing HQ2. Regardless of Amazon’s decision though, the company is likely planning to do something in Miami, according to an expert.

Urban studies professor Richard Florida speculated in the New York Times that Amazon is likely studying each of the remaining cities for other expansion possibilities as well. “What is a better Latin America headquarters than Miami?,” he said.
