VisitTampaBay: Web site Not only do I spend my time writing blog entries and trying to keep all of you informed on Tampa Bay conventions and hotel news… but I also get to write and distribute an electronic quarterly newsletter via email for the Convention Sales department, with the help of my best work bud, Heather Helton.


Since our second quarter this year (Jan-March), we have been producing one cohesive, all-inclusive sales newsletter that represents every market. Before this, each market had its own quarterly newsletter that was market-specific, and not very cohesive, if you ask me. So I decided that we should make a change. I then brought the idea of creating one solid newsletter for the entire department to the desks of the “big-wigs” in our department, and they loved it!

So here we are, with a beautifully-designed newsletter format, and a very consistent and organized message that goes out every quarter to more than 11,000 of our sales contacts, including nationwide meeting planners, executives and more.

Each newsletter includes the most pertinent and important information pertaining to Tampa Bay’s convention and meetings package. Our clients get the most up-to-date facts on hotel renovations and expansions, new attractions and restaurants, special events and much more.

The next newsletter is set to go out sometime within the next two weeks. Be on the lookout, and if you are not already on our mailing list and want to receive the newsletter, just let me know. I’d be happy to add you to the list so you can keep track of all of the amazing things going on in Tampa Bay’s convention world.

While we’re on this subject, are there any topics that you’d be interested in reading about in an upcoming newsletter or on my blog page? I am always open to suggestions.

As always, thanks for reading and stay tuned for more posts with exciting Tampa Bay news!
