Venue: Tampa Convention Center:
333 S. Franklin Street • Tampa, FL 33602 • (813) 274-8511

The Tampa Convention Center is not only right on the water, it's minutes away from some of Florida's best attractions.  Run wild at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, stare down the sharks at The Florida Aquarium, feed your spirit at the Tampa Museum of Art or take a tour through history on the American Victory Ship, one of only four fully-operational WWII ships in the country.  Tampa Bay Beaches if you picture pristine, sugar-white sand when you think of the beach, you're envisioning Tampa Bay beaches!  In recent years, more than one have been named not just the best beach in Florida but in the country. You'll fall in love with Indian Rock Beach, North Beach and many more. 

Tampa Restaurants, Nightlife & Shopping - Tampa restaurants offer unique dining experiences, from Old World Hispanic flavors to the best seafood and steaks on the East Coast. You can also hop a historic streetcar to the cafes and shops of nearby Channelside (a 5-minute walk from the Convention Center via the Riverwalk). Day or night, stroll the Tampa Riverwalk, and when the sun goes down, spend a few hours enjoying concerts in Tampa or the vibrant Tampa theater scene before dancing the night away in our sizzling Latin Quarter, Ybor City.
