Annual Meeting sponsorship opportunities now available!

July 19, 2017

Sponsorship opportunities for the 2017 Annual Meeting are available now – and they are going quickly! We welcome all EDC Investors and other local companies interested in supporting this event to participate and gain visibility among more than 700 of the region’s top executive leaders and corporate decision makers.

But please don’t delay! We can tell you from past experience that these sponsorships sell out fast. For a complete listing of available opportunities, click here.

Prospective sponsors can choose from several levels ranging from $1,000 to $7,500.The Pre-Event Sponsorship offers one company the chance to be the exclusive sponsor of the cocktail reception, while the Promotional Sponsors will work the EDC to get their logo on promotional materials, such as lanyards or event t-shirts, which will be passed out to all attendees.

We’d like to thank Tampa Electric and Peoples Gas for returning as our Annual Meeting Premier Sponsor, Hillsborough Community College for being our Presenting Sponsor for the second year in a row, and the Tampa Bay Business Journal for being our Media Sponsor once again.

“Our Annual Meeting is a must-attend event for community leaders as well as business professionals from all industries,” said Craig Richard, CEcD, the EDC’s President and CEO. “We’re excited to be opening up these sponsorship opportunities to the public for the first time ever. While the Annual Meeting highlights the work of the EDC as well as our Investors, it is truly a celebration of the Tampa and Hillsborough County business community.”

To secure your sponsorship, or for more information, please contact Avril Stinson, Director of Investor Relations, at (813) 518-2642 or
