Hey Gang, jerm here with a quick update for you. Ever wonder how all of those tourists you see all the time effect your community? Well we here in the hospitality industry know how much those folks impact what we do and how we go about our lives, so we want to make sure that you know!

So to help out with that effort, your favorite Tampa Bay team created this little "Tourism Matters" video and we need your help to spread the word for us, not just in the local Tampa tourism community, but all across the country. Feel free as well to forward this on to friends as well so we can make this as viral as possible.

That's all for now, but enjoy the video and remember that YOU ARE TOURISM!!!
