LInda Mummert here with a Convention Sales update!
From Feb. 29-March 1, Tampa Bay & Company representatives and its partners conducted a successful sales mission in Chicago, one of its top feeder markets. Five Tampa Bay & Company partners joined Regional Account Executive Jeff Gassaway , National Sales Manager Amy Trautman and Director of Convention Sales Alex Kaptzan for group sales calls and two client event functions.
Team Tampa Bay made group presentations to Smith Bucklin, American Bar Association, Experient and Association Management Center. Each organization either has met or will be meeting in Tampa Bay, generating hotel room nights and positive economic impact for the destination.
In addition to the group calls, the team hosted a reception at EPIC restaurant in downtown Chicago and a luncheon at Gibsons restaurant in the Chicago suburbs. Both functions were a huge hit with our clients.
Till next time, it's over and out, and stay tuned in for more updates on Tampa Bay meetings!
