Opportunity Tampa Bay II

The Tampa Bay EDC unveiled its new three-year strategic plan, Opportunity Tampa Bay, at the start of fiscal year 2020. In our new strategic plan, Opportunity Tampa Bay II, we expanded Talent Attraction to include Development – and will place greater emphasis on collaboration with our education and workforce partners to meet the skills demands of our employers.

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.

The results from our FY2020-FY2022 Strategic Action Plan are available to download.
