2012 Tampa Bay Host Committee for the Republican National Convention Unveils New Videos and Website to Showcase Tampa Bay

The 2012 Tampa Bay Host Committee for the Republican National Convention recently redesigned and launched a new website with new Tampa Bay videos  to better promote the Tampa Bay region to the nation and world.

To help people get to know the Tampa Bay region, the Host Committee has utilized its volunteer Communications Action Group to develop four videos. The main video will highlight all of Tampa Bay, and the three additional videos will showcase the individual cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater.  The videos can be found on the delegate tab of the website.

In addition, the website, www.2012Tampa.com, is a complete overhaul from the former site’s design. New tabs include a Delegate tab, which provides important information about Tampa Bay for convention delegates; an Economic Development tab, which champions the Host Committee’s “Why Florida? Why Now?” economic development series; and a Store tab, which features merchandise commemorating the 2012 Republican National Convention.

“The Host Committee is comprised of individuals who live in Tampa Bay, and it is important that we promote our region to the tens of thousands of guests coming to our area for the Convention this August,” said Host Committee President and CEO Ken Jones. “Information is organized so that visitors to the website, including delegates, media and others, can easily find what they need. We are excited to have launched a website that will be useful to those interested in learning more about the Tampa Bay area, as well as the 2012 Republican National Convention.”

The Delegate tab is designed to be utilized by any guest coming to Tampa Bay in August. Information targeted directly towards guests will be continuously updated as a way to promote the Tampa Bay region, its small businesses and local tourist destinations.

The Host Committee’s website also features easy-to-find buttons for those interested in volunteering or donating. In addition, the Host Committee’s Small Business Network Directory, which is comprised of registered Tampa Bay small businesses, is highlighted.

Locally owned In Creative Group, a member of the Host Committee’s Small Business Network, helped in the design and implementation of the new website, and Riverbank Studios, which is a member of the Host Committee’s volunteer Communications Action Group, produced the Tampa Bay videos.

  1. The Republican National Convention is going very well, with one HUGE exception. The bus transportaion from the Times Forum is like a Chinese Fire Drill. It took us 3 hours to get on a bus, make the trip to Raymond James Stadium, wait to unload there, find and load onto another bus and then finally arrive at our Hotel. Whoever made this transportation arrangement should be fired. We will more than likely not return Weds. and Thurs. nights, but opt to watch it on tv…just because of this one poorly planned and ridiculously executed transportation system.
