Which industries are demonstrating the most interest in your area today?
Long Beach has a rich interest in aerospace and aviation, which continues to this day. In the past few years, it has earned the nickname “Space Beach” for an increasingly strong presence of satellite launch companies, including Virgin Orbit, SpinLaunch, Relativity Space, and Rocket Lab. As the home to one of the busiest ports in the nation, the Port of Long Beach, the city is also a major hub for international trade and logistics operations. And with the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, Aquarium of the Pacific, Carnival Cruise Line, the Museum of Latin American Art, the soon to reopen Queen Mary, many hotels, and host of other attractions, the city is a major hub for hospitality and tourism. Other industries with a large presence include health care and education.

What type of new-build activity are homebuilders experiencing, and what’s next for the sector in the coming months? 
Long Beach continues to see a flurry of residential development activity across the city, with mixed-use, multi-family, and single-family projects recently completed, underway and planned.

What makes Long Beach an ideal location to locate a business?
Long Beach is a diverse city with a talented workforce. Home to a top-ranked CSU (California State University, Long Beach), as well as Long Beach City College, there is a large base from which to attract skilled employees. The city has all the amenities and services needed to support your business and workforce: its own airport (Long Beach Airport), three major hospitals, the Port of Long Beach, direct access to multiple freeways, plus major financial institutions and logistics firms, and much more. With 11 miles of waterways, a six-mile oceanfront beach, a diverse dining scene, boutique shopping districts and major retail centers, a performing arts center, a thriving nightlife, and endless activities for all ages, Long Beach is an ideal place to live, work and play.
