Hey everyone, Lisa here! I hope you're having a great week!

Starting tomorrow, Tampa Bay & Company will be hosting 21 tour operators and 6 travel writers for the Travel South Showcase Pre-FAM. The 27th annual Travel South Showcase takes place in Kissimmee, FL from April 4-8 so from April 1-4 Tampa will host these VIP guests on a familiarization tour of our beautiful destination.

Our visitors will rest their heads at the Quorum Hotel Tampa or the Hyatt Place Tampa Westshore after spending their days visiting attractions such as The Florida Aquarium, Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, MOSI, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Ybor City.

And of course we don't let our guests go hungry...While in Tampa, these VIP guests will dine at the Yacht StarShip 11, the Columbia Restaurant, Skipper's Smokehouse, Buca di Beppo and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino!

Be on the lookout for our special guests this week and be sure to flash them your friendly Tampa smile!
