State of the Region

Hundreds of public, private and non-profit leaders from throughout Tampa Bay convene each year at the State of Region luncheon, hosted by the Tampa Bay Partnership and USF Muma College of Business.

During this annual unveiling of the Regional Competitiveness Report, we reveal important new research tracking key indicators of Tampa Bay’s competitiveness and prosperity, and examine where our region stands compared to top markets around the country.

We also explore the steps we can take to improve our economic performance, using innovative real-time data and predictive analytics developed by researchers from the university’s Center for Analytics and Creativity in the Tampa Bay E-Insights Report.

The 2018 State of the Region luncheon was supported by Grow Financial, Florida Blue and the SunTrust Foundation.
