Due to the expected impact of Hurricane Irma on our region, we are postponing our 2017 Small Business of the Year Awards scheduled for Friday, September 8th at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts. We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may cause, but community safety is our priority.
With the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County declaring states of emergencies, we further believe it is critical to allow time for you, your employees, event sponsors and chamber staff to take the level of action they feel appropriate to protect their families.
Please visit http://flvbeoc.org/index.php for business preparation resources. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit https://www.volunteerflorida.org/. Follow @AlertTampa on Twitter for real time updates on Hurricane Irma.
SBOY is now scheduled for October 18th. All registrations will be honored for the new date.
Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to celebrating our small businesses on October 18th!
