Hey everyone!  Travis here with some Tampa tourism information that you need to hear.  Plus, as far as Tampa Bay area events go, this is one you'll want to be at. 

To show our support for Tampa Bay’s No. 1 industry, and in observance of National Travel and Tourism Week, we invite the Tampa Bay community to attend the U.S. Travel Rally Day for Tourism on Tuesday, May 12 at Tampa International Airport. 

To demonstrate the value of tourism to the entire Tampa Bay area, Tampa Bay & Company is co-hosting this event with Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater.  The rally will feature remarks by local tourism officials, as well as representatives from municipal and county governments on both sides of the bay. 

This industry-wide event is designed to bring together members of our community who both support and represent the travel industry.  Additionally, attendees will enjoy only-in Tampa Bay activities and entertainment while supporting tourism in Tampa Bay!

It's Tuesday, May 12, 2009 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Tampa International Airport, Level 3 (Landside Terminal).  Attendees should park in Short-Term Parking; first hour of parking at TIA is free. 

We need everyone's help, so please plan to be out there to show your support for Tampa Tourism!  If you have any questions, let us know...plus you can e-mail me at TClaytor@VisitTampaBay.com

See you for Rally Day at TIA!
