Well it is Linda Mummert signing on again.  I hope your weekend was enjoyable. Down to business.. …

Tampa Bay & Company is pleased to welcome the Tampa Bay meetings and conventions being held in Tampa Bay from Saturday, April 10 through Friday, April 16.  In all, more than 16,300 delegates will attend these meetings and events, which will produce nearly 9,800 hotel room nights to create an estimated delegate spending of $3.4 million. 

One example of these meetings and conventions is the Florida State Thespian Society’s (FSTS) Annual Festival.  This conference will welcome 1,000 thespians to Tampa Bay, producing nearly 5,900 hotel room nights for an estimated delegate spending of $1.14 million. 

The FSTS is committed to presenting the very best work from high schools across the State of Florida.  The FSTS Annual Festival has been held in Tampa for several years and is scheduled to return through 2013.  For more information, log on to www.flthespian.com.
Please join us in welcoming this group, as well as all meetings and conventions, to the Tampa Bay area! 

It is over and out for now until I have new developments in the Convention Sales department of Tampa Bay and Company.
