If you are going to be in Tampa, Florida for the Republican National Convention, plan on visiting the Bloomberg Link convention headquarters.  It’s a 10 minute walk from the Tampa Bay Times Forum and it’s where we will host interviews, panel discussions, policy briefings and debates beginning Sunday, August 26th.

We are putting the finishing touches on our space located above Jackson’s Bistro at 601 South Harbour Blvd, Suite 200 where, with our partners, we will host current and former government officials and business leaders to discuss hot topics including healthcare, defense, technology and of course, the central issue of this election – the economy.

Guests, speakers and moderators will include former Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice; Governor of Florida Rick Scott; former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush; former Governor of Michigan John Engler; former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao; Vice President of Citigroup and former Secretary of Commerce, Carlos Gutierrez; National Co-Chair of MavPac George P. Bush; former State Department official Liz Cheney; and oil and gas executive, financier and billionaire investor T. Boone Pickens, among others.

Here is a continually updated lineup of events. Please note that seating is limited and events are invitation only.  To request an invitation or for event inquiries, please email us at conventions@bloomberg.net.
