 Tampa Bay Host Committee RNCWith the 2012 Republican National Convention less than a month away, the 2012 Tampa Bay Host Committee is dedicated to utilizing the goods and services of Florida-based businesses. In fact, the Host Committee has already infused millions of dollars into the Florida economy through contracts with businesses statewide, including many in the Tampa Bay region. This number will continue to grow in the weeks leading up to the Convention.

“As the official Republican National Convention Host Committee, we have made it our mission to steadfastly support Florida’s business community. The Host Committee has been, and continues to be, committed to utilizing statewide businesses to provide the goods and services we need to make the Convention a phenomenal success,” said Host Committee President and CEO Ken Jones. “In addition, we’re working hard to promote Tampa Bay’s businesses, including its small business community, to those descending on the region this month.

To date, the Host Committee has awarded millions of dollars in contracts to businesses in the Tampa Bay area and surrounding region. In May, the Host Committee launched its Small Business Network Directory, the first of its kind in the history of the Republican National Convention, in an effort to market Tampa Bay’s small business community to the thousands of guests visiting the area this month.

Jones added, “Given that the broader economy and Florida in particular have been emerging from a difficult economic climate, the infusion of these dollars into the economy couldn’t have come at a more opportune moment.”

Categories with which the Host Committee has conducted business include:

Catering                                        Motor Pool/Rental Cars
Construction                              Office Supplies/Furniture
