67th Annual Conference & Marketplace

The International Downtown Association (IDA) and co-host, Tampa Downtown Partnership, will proudly present the 67th Annual Conference & Marketplace on October 20-22, 2021 in Tampa, Florida.

Come together to explore solutions and gain actionable insights to tackle the modern obstacles urban place management organizations face today. This year’s theme, “Modern Momentum,” will focus on the ways in which urban districts have creatively embraced new challenges to better support economic development, placemaking and communications in their community. The brightest industry minds will come together to discuss post-pandemic recovery efforts and carry the momentum of unprecedented times into deploying unique strategies in an ever-evolving economy.

The 2021 conference will highlight Tampa Bay’s transformation from an emerging metropolitan area, to one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. Major Florida cities have activated and invested in their waterfronts, using the natural environment as the ethos for the future, culminating a series of emerging districts with distinct character, purpose and design — this is not the Florida of the past. The eclectic urban areas of Tampa Bay are diverse and vibrant, embracing our cultural heritage while diving deep into a new decade of development.

Attendees will experience a walkable, sunny Tampa’s Downtown, where the average yearly temperature is 73 degrees. Home to the Cuban sandwich, cutting-edge breweries, trophy-winning sports teams, a three-month long pirate-themed celebration named Gasparilla, and the beautiful 2.6-mile Tampa Riverwalk, Tampa’s Downtown is happening!
