"I'm going to end my talk here. In a moment, I'll open up the floor to any questions, but first let me thank you for your time and attention."

What does it mean of 'open up the floor to any questions'?

It when you give your audience a chance to ask you questions.

At a public meeting in a hall, the speakers are usually seated on a raised platform or stage at the front. Where the audience sits is called 'the floor'. Questions may be asked of the speakers, and is called 'a question from the floor'; and at the end of the meeting, the moderator will invite questions by saying, "The floor is now open to questions."
