• Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber Rallies for VISIT FLORIDA

    The Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce will hold a rally to support funding VISIT FLORIDA at the full amount


    Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce and its members are scheduled to hold a Rally for Tourism and Jobs 2:00pm Thursday May 4th at the chamber, 6990 Gulf Boulevard, St. Pete Beach.


    The purpose of this rally is to show support for VISIT FLORIDA and urge our legislators to listen to their constituents by funding VISIT FLORIDA at the full amount requested by Governor Scott.


    After the rally, the chamber will have a phone bank inside to call legislators and make a plea for them to save jobs and save our economy. If legislators cut VISIT FLORIDA’s funding, many jobs would be at risk and jeopardize Florida families.


    VISIT FLORIDA is essential in bringing visitors to our state who generate 23% of our sales tax revenue, create over 1.4 million jobs, support small business and boost our local economy with $108.8 billion in economic impact. It is critical to renew the focus on the value of marketing the Sunshine State.
