The Tampa Bay International Business Council (TBIBC) is a non-profit organization that is based on the support of approximately a 14 binational chambers of commerce and trade associations. The general objectives are to promote Collaboration, Diversity and Prosperity. TBIBC seeks to integrate multinational and American-born residents into a more unified community, to share resources and networks, and to develop regional and international trade for Tampa Bay and the surrounding counties.
TBIBC has been in existence for over fifty years. TBIBC has worked to build bonds and communication between the Tampa Bay area’s many diverse and binational communites and organizations.
Seven years ago, the International Business Summit (IBS) was developed as a separate movement. IBS focused on a single, annual summit with very similar objectives to TBIBC.
Since then, TBIBC and IBS have found a strong, mutual synergy and have joined to become one organization. Past presidents of TBIBC and IBS have come together to form the advisory body of the current TBIBC, and with the hardworking volunteers of both organizations have formed teams to put Tampa Bay on the map.
This allows TBIBC to provide four distinctive, annual TBIBC events, and to work more closely with different supporting binational and university organizations. The signature Spring International Business Summit remains the highlight of the year and the Fall, Winter and Summer Events are becoming more defined. Joint Chamber events are becoming more common, and we are able to offer a wide range of different events for both members and for our much-valued, high-calibre sponsors.
TBIBC began reaching out nationwide and has been selected as a key organization for the US Agency for Trade and Development.
This Agency reports directly to the President of the United States, and TBIBC is honored to serve in this regard.
