Linda Mummert reporting on another exciting convention sales event.  Sherri Brown, National Sales Manager had an important site visit with the National Baptist Convention USA group on December 20th.  In attendance were Marsha DuPont, Director of Conventions, Meetings & Planning, Dr. George W. Waddles, Sr., President of Congress of Christian Education and William Foster, Treasurer of Congress of Christian Education.  They toured our downtown hotel properties and the Tampa Convention Center. 

Sherri gave them a driving tour of  Tampa’s downtown highlights including the Channelside District and local restaurants.  Tampa Bay & Company, hotel partners and Tampa Convention Center associates “wowed” them with our Tampa Bay Welcome at the Tampa Convention Center

They are considering Tampa for their June 2015 Congress of Christian Education meeting with an economic impact of over $3,000,000.00 for our city.  Total room nights over 14,000 with an attendance of 20,000 delegates.  We truly want this convention in Tampa!  Well it is over and out for now until next time.
