MEETINGS & CONVENTIONS


UPDATED JUNE 25, 2020: Visit Tampa Bay is actively monitoring COVID-19 and the rapidly-changing impact on meetings and conventions in the area. We are committed to keeping you informed as we remain in contact with meeting planners, groups and our local partners. Visit Tampa Bay is working diligently to retain events with public safety and the needs of our community in mind.  Instances where a program is working to reschedule within the calendar year are marked “postponed”.  Where appropriate, proactive efforts are underway to host cancelled events in a future year.
