Tampa, FL – The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce recently gathered to recognize the community military personnel during its 2014 Military Appreciation Banquet at the Tampa Convention Center. This is the 16th year that the Chamber honored local military who contributed to the greater good of the area, as well as civilians who support them.
Some 10,000 active and 40,000 retired military members live in Tampa, acknowledged Vice Admiral Mark I. Fox, who was the Banquet’s keynote speaker. NROTC Cadets from the University of South Florida performed the POW/MIA Ceremony that honored all the missing men and women from each of the services.
Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn expressed gratitude to the people in the military on behalf of all Tampa residents. Miss Tampa 2014 Katy Sartain and many business leaders also attended the Banquet.
AVI-SPL CS2 was recognized as the production sponsor of the event. Our team provided all the staging, including audio, video and lighting. We also produced some of the graphics and videos for the event.
Congratulations all the award recipients! To all active and retired military members: thank you for your service.
