The Tampa Bay Host Committee Welcome Event will continue as planned. The focus of this event has always been about promoting Tampa Bay by welcoming the delegates, media and guests to the area for the Republican National Convention. Based on current weather information, the Tampa Bay area will be in a position to safely host an event of this magnitude while showcasing the widespread community support received during the planning process.
The Welcome Event will take place from 6:00-9:30 p.m., with doors opening at 5:00 p.m. Invited guests must wear an official Host Committee issued Welcome Event credential to access the event. No parking is available on-site at Tropicana Field.
