We are working closely with the Tampa Convention Center and Visit Tampa Bay to plan for a safe and healthy AMTA National Convention. In addition, we will follow CDC, state, local, and facility guidelines regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Safety measures and plans are evolving, but are likely to include social distancing, attendee occupancy management, and personal mask use, which is currently required in Tampa.

We will be updating this page with the latest information as Convention approaches. Though our annual Convention may look a little different this year, we are looking forward to bringing our community together again in person.
