Hello all,just wanted to give some insight on what some of our hard working convention sales managers have been up to lately. Tampa Bay & Company National Sales Managers Tammy Lamm and Jeff Gassaway recently returned from the Professional Convention Management Association’s (PCMA) Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas. 

More than 3,000 meetings industry professionals gathered for the Annual Meeting, which addressed the evolving needs of meeting professionals in the face of global and economic challenges.  Attracting half of PCMA members each year, the PCMA Annual Meeting is touted as one of the meetings industry's most comprehensive educational and networking events.

Throughout the Annual Meeting, the team promoted the Tampa Bay area as a premier meetings destination and attended a variety of educational breakout sessions, general sessions and networking opportunities. 
The team also met with new planners and potential customers, as well as with existing customers, to see how Tampa Bay & Company can better serve their organizations.  The Tampa Bay delegation also co-hosted a custom dinner in conjunction with the Long Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau

Great job by Tammy and Jeff, and we'll keep you updated with those guys when they hit the road again trying to bring in more Tampa Bay conventions!

That's all for now, but stay tuned in for more on Tampa Bay meetings!
