ACC Hospitality Committee pushes down Road To Tampa Bay

The ACC Hospitality Committee, one of the local organizing committee's marketing council, gained recognition in last week's Tampa Bay Business Journal. The committee is made up of local members from various hospitality concepts.

In promoting ACC Football Championship, local outlets are implementing signage, team jerseys, posters and offering free ticket contests. Area hotels will have banners and posters displayed in the lobbies, bars, restaurants, and other public places.

Some venues are purchasing hospitality packages to use for entertaining top clients and rewarding employees. Prices for these packages range from $2,500 to $18,500 and include game tickets, parking passes, reception and hospitality invitations and advertising opportunities.
Local beverage distributors have helped produce several hundred posters to hang around local establishments. Other restaurants holding watch parties for local alumni groups have signage and ticket promotional opportunities throughout the season.

Splitsville in Channelside, one concept for the December 5th "Toast to the Atlantic Coast" celebration, has servers wearing Road To Tampa Bay t-shirts and has a Road To Tampa Bay banner above each of the 12 bowling lanes.
