As Florida’s largest industry, tourism is a major economic driver in both downtown Tampa and the entire region.

Official estimates put the number of visitors to Hillsborough County at nearly 22-million annually, with $3.6 billion in spending and supporting more than 48,000 hospitality-related jobs, making it a significant sector of Tampa Bay’s economy.

The Tampa Downtown Partnership will examine the latest trends in tourism and future growth in “Downtown Debriefing Series: Trends in Tourism,” scheduled Tuesday, May 2, at the Embassy Suites Hotel, 513 S. Florida Ave. in Tampa.

Trends in Tourism features a discussion with Santiago Corrada, president and CEO of Visit Tampa Bay and Maryann Ferenc, incoming board chair of VISIT FLORIDA.

Networking and registration begin at 7:30 a.m.; continental breakfast and program start at 8 – 9 a.m.

Members of the media are welcome to attend as guests of Tampa Downtown Partnership, with RSVPs for complimentary registration through Kelsy Van Camp.
