TBC LogoOn Jan. 1, 2012, Tampa Bay & Company will debut its 2012 Travel Planner to visitors, residents, partners and the Tampa Bay community. The newest edition of the Travel Planner is packed with the traditional information about the destination such as how to get around, where to stay, what to do, where to eat and various area services that are available.

With visitors continuing to make more decisions on the go, Tampa Bay & Company will also make the 2012 Travel Planner accessible at the touch of a button. Visitors will be able to access the Travel Planner at www.TampaBayVisitorGuide.com.

There’ll also be some new additions to this year’s Travel Planner, including the implementation of Quick Response, or QR, codes that will link users directly to information about the Tampa Bay area.

So, whether you’re here for business or pleasure and looking for information like the best places to shop, where to experience Tampa Bay's arts and culture or where the best golf courses are hidden, visitors can plan out their perfect itinerary before ever setting foot in Tampa Bay.

Visitors can order a copy of the 2012 Travel Planner, as well as a Discount Booklet, by visiting http://brochures.visittampabay.com before you come to Tampa or stopping by one of the visitor centers while you’re in town.

Well, that’s all for now, but be sure to tune in for more exciting Tampa Bay visitor and meetings/ conventions news & updates!

Until then … Think Tampa!
