Local businesses in Tampa may benefit from the influx of people set to travel to Florida for the Republican National Convention, to be held August 27 through 30. There is much excitement surrounding the upcoming convention, where the Republican nominee for President of the United States will be named. Should you own one of the many businesses taking part in the events slated for convention week, you may want to contact your Tampa insurance agent to make sure your policies are up-to-date.

The Tampa Host Committee is striving to help businesses make the most of the national event by offering discount cards to over 100 Tampa area businesses. Known as the GOParty cards, they may be obtained online. The Host Committee will be launching a mobile application in mid-July where individuals may obtain a digital version of the GOParty card. The cards will offer discounts for arts and cultural establishments, casual and fine dining restaurants, golf, outside activities and other amusements.

Some of the GOParty cards will be given out to conventioneers at airports and hotels, and others will be placed in goodie bags for delegates and members of the media. Convention week provides an excellent opportunity for area businesses to make money and promote their products and services. You may want to contact your Tampa insurance agent to make sure you have the financial protection you need during the Republican National Convention and beyond.
