Here’s just a taste of some of the groups who this week will see what Tampa Bay has to offer.
The Association of American Medical Colleges will be here for its Professional Development Conference for Health Professions Financial Aid Administrators. Sure, it’s quite a mouthful to say, but there will be 300 or more attending that meeting, so we welcome them with with a simple “Hi!”
The largest group of the week might be the Underground Construction Technology (UCT) International Conference & Exhibition for the Oildom Publishing Co. of Texas, Inc. About 3,100 people will be attending the conference at the Tampa Convention Center in downtown Tampa, along with one of the local hotels. This convention alone will produce about 2,250 hotel room nights in the area, so it’s great for the economy.
Of course, the Florida RV SuperShow is in town, too, so expect RVers of all shapes and destinations will converge over at the Fairgrounds for the weekend.
Other groups that will be in town include the American College of Radiology, the National Guard Bureau, American Correctional Association, Resource Associates Corporation, Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute, ACS Transportation Management Solutions, and others.
In all, more than 8,300 people will be at these meetings which will produce about $6.8 million in delegate spending. So, you can see how this would be a good thing for the Tampa Bay community. Let’s make ‘em feel welcome, mmmk?
