Tampa has been on a role booking big time business. In the past two weeks we have received signed contracts from multiple organizations to bring meetings or conventions to Tampa Bay.
One of those pieces of business is the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) which will be bringing in their DISA Customer Partnership Conference to Tampa in May of 2012. This conference will bring in approximately 3,000 delegates, which will produce more than 8,500 room nights for Tampa Hotels for an estimated value of the conference at $2.2 million.
AFCEA International, established in 1946, is a non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as an ethical forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, IT, intelligence, and global security.
Congratulations to the Convention Sales team on a job well done, and please join us in welcoming this group, and all groups, to Tampa Bay. Stay tuned in for updates on Tampa Bay meetings!
