Tampa Bay has long been a breeding ground for America’s top athletes and teams.  A reputation for producing champions has translated into strong demand for sports-performance oriented development from communities, healthcare providers, and sporting organizations alike.  Communities across the bay are increasingly realizing the benefit that sport-oriented development can have for economic development, land use, and sense of place.

The list of world-renowned facilities is ever expanding and includes IMG Academy, Premier Soccer, Benderson Park, Florida Hospital Center Ice, Saddlebrook, and the recently announced plans to develop a $44 million multi-use tourism sports facility in Wesley Chapel … not to mention facilities for baseball’s infamous Grapefruit League.

Please join us on Thursday, September 7th to hear from a panel of public and private sector experts as they discuss sports-performance sector trends and the critical components behind creating successful sports-oriented development.

Speakers Include:

Richard Blalock, President & CEO, RaddSports, LLC (Wiregrass Sports Complex Developer)

Sharon Hillstrom, President & CEO, Bradenton Area Economic Development Corporation

Lisa Kirkland OSteen, Director of Marketing, Florida Sports Foundation

Gordie Zimmermann, Principal, Z Mitch, LLC (Florida Hospital Center Ice Rink Developer)

Bill Walsh, Vice President, Tampa Bay Rays (Moderator)
