Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa will hold the fifth annual Tampa Bay Hurricane Expo at The Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) on Saturday, June 2, 2012. The Expo will continue its tradition of informing and educating the public on the importance of making plans in preparation for any emergency through a fun, family-oriented event.

The Expo features vendors, entertainment, a panel of meteorologists from local news stations and emergency experts, children’s activities, giveaways, and discounted admission to MOSI (special engagements excluded). Last year, more than 3,000 guests attended the Tampa Bay Hurricane Expo.

Vendor opportunities are available for businesses, local non-profits and government agencies who offer hurricane protection or survival products or services. Sponsorship also are available, which help make this important community education event possible. Available sponsorship levels include a title sponsorship opportunity ($5,000), parking sponsor opportunity ($3,000), and hurricane sponsor opportunities ($1,000). Sponsorship benefits include, at a minimum, a tax benefit of a charitable contribution to the City of Tampa; company name displayed on Expo fliers and posters distributed throughout Tampa and Hillsborough County, on the Expo schedule guide handed to all attendees as they enter the Expo, and on the Expo website; and a choice of a prime booth location.

To participate, interested vendors and sponsors need to fill out the vendor/sponsor registration at www.TampaBayHurricaneExpo.com. Deadline to submit exhibit the registration form by mail or fax is Monday, April 30.
