Opportunity Tampa Bay

The Tampa Bay EDC unveiled its new three-year strategic plan at the start of fiscal year 2020. Opportunity Tampa Bay focuses on three major goals in order to capitalize on the progress we’ve made and to strengthen Tampa Bay’s competitiveness: Business Development, Talent, and Placemaking.



These goals drive the content and focus of every one of our marketing initiatives. And the four guiding principles we’ve established will inform our growth and improvement objectives for the EDC and the market we serve.
