Join the 3rd Annual Florida Student Summit on Global Business (IBB)

Each year, all students who study international business in Florida are invited to attend and event at USF. ( This is a major, one-day event, involving students from all over Florida.

I want to reach out to you to invite members of TBIBC and their Chambers to the 3rd Annual Florida Student Summit on Global Business hosted at University of South Florida, Marshall Center on Friday, February 10th.

You can use the below info to invite your chamber members, colleagues, or friends to help the students learn about the variety of opportunities Tampa has in the global business world and introduce them to networking.

Three different groups can benefit from this and you are all invited. Documents attached for download.

1. Professional- Members that are professionals are invited to attend and mingle, eat lunch and network with the students, share insights, talk about different careers, companies, industries, things they should be doing.  Anything to help the students get more comfortable with networking and learn about variety of things that exist in the professional world when they graduate and how to accomplish them.
2. Companies- Members that represent medium-larger companies that want to set up a table and share information with the students.  This is especially helpful for companies looking to hire college grads, interns, part-time, etc.
3. Chambers- The bi-national chambers themselves are also invited to attend and set up a table to promote their organization and maybe find some helpful volunteers or interns to help them build their organization.

We are also interested in sponsors. Documents attached for download.

All 3 are invited to attend the 12:30-2:30pm networking session where we will have a variety of companies and organizations with tables set up on one side and other professionals mingling and networking with hundreds of students from colleges and universities across the state.  There will be Free lunch and beverages provided and they are welcome to stay for our keynote speaker at 2:45pm Paul Donato-Executive Vice President and Chief Research Officer of Nielsen.

The goal is to bring students and professionals together from across the state for a free and open forum to network, share ideas, cultivate a global mindset, and open students up to the variety of companies, organizations, industries and career paths the Tampa region and Florida have to offer.  Many students are limited in their exposure to the variety of opportunities that await them when they graduate and how to obtain them, this summit will help.

If anyone is interested in attending they should send me their: Name, Email, Phone, company, position, If they want to attend as a company (with table) or just professional (no table), along with any questions.
