Join EASA in Tampa

Ranked by Forbes magazine as one of America’s best outdoor cities, Tampa has something to offer every-one. Situated on Tampa Bay, the area is known for its beaches, where warm, blue gulf waters attract tourists from all over the world. With a metropolitan area of nearly 3 million residents, the greater Tampa Bay area is the fourth largest in the Southeastern United States. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Adventure Island, Lowry Park Zoo and the Florida Aquarium are just a few of the attractions you’ll find in this bustling city.

The warm, tropical climate means you’ll want to pack for comfort! With warm to hot summer days, light and airy clothes will be the norm for any outdoor activities. Thanks to its proximity to Tampa Bay, though, the city of Tampa has never hit 100°F (38°C). Summer is also Tampa’s rainy season, so an afternoon shower or storm can’t be ruled out.

An invitation from Chairman Smith

This year’s theme is “Partners for Progress.”  Attending the convention provides the perfect opportunity to strengthen partnerships with your fellow EASA members. Taking part in the education sessions, networking with other members and sharing knowledge and information are just some of the benefits of attending an EASA convention. As I’ve said before, even though we may be competitors, we all share a common interest, and networking with your fellow members helps to foster great “Partners for Progress.”

This year we’re adding another registration option to make it even easier for you to attend the EASA Convention. We’re all busy and sometimes don’t have time to attend all four days of events. So, for the first time, we’re offering One Day Registrations! Now, you can register for just the days you want to attend. While the Full Registration Option still gives you the best value, the One Day Registrations may fit better with your schedule.

For a full breakdown of the different registration options, please see the grid below. From all of our great education sessions, to our fun-filled tours and social events, the EASA 2017 Convention promises something for everyone! We can’t wait to see you in Tampa this June!
