Tampa Bay is continuing to grow as a prime destination for meetings and conventions, and it shows in how many diverse meetings we have booked over the past year. Let's take a look back and see some of the successes of the year:
BICSI, a Telecommunications Association awarded Tampa with their January 2013 Winter Conference, which will be attended by over 1,700 delegates. This meeting is expected to create $1.5 million in delegate spending.
The Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (AEAONMS) will hold its National Convention in Tampa in August 2010. The convention is expected to see 15,000 attendees and create more than $11 million in delegate spending.
The U.S. Soccer Federation's CONCACAF Men's U-23 Championships was held in Tampa in March of this year, bringing more than 10,000 attendees to the Bay area and bringing in more than $700,000 in economic impact.
As you can see, Tampa Bay is becoming one of the top choices for meeting destinations. From the corporate world, to religious groups, to sporting events, Tampa Bay is the place to pick!
