Market Overview

Tampa is the 4th Largest City in the South Eastern region of the United States, and the 2nd largest City in Florida.

Located on Florida’s west coast, the area’s warm climate and sandy beaches are a hot spot for tourists. Tampa’s seaside location has helped to shape the city’s well round economic profile. In addition to shipping and tourism, other important sectors of Tampa’s economy include healthcare, media, retail, finance, service, real estate, national defense and professional sports. The City’s direct access to the Gulf of Mexico has helped Tampa to become Florida’s leading tonnage port (7th in the Nation) and 2nd busiest port for cruise ship travel. Tampa’s Channelside area provides direct access to cruise ships, as well as shopping, dining, nightlife, and the nearby Florida Aquarium.

Tampa’s revitalized downtown area sits adjacent to the Tampa Convention center, as well as 4 and 5 star hotel accommodations, and in close proximity to the beautiful University of Tampa campus.
