Stepping Up for Tampa Bay During the Republican National Convention

September 25, 2012

Stepping Up for Tampa Bay During the Republican National ConventionSaint Leo University was proud to help support the efforts recently of Front Row Tampa Bay, an unprecedented effort, built around the Republican National Convention, to promote regional and Florida businesses and economic opportunity to the rest of the nation and world as all eyes are upon our community next week.

For four days on August 27-30, from 9 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. each day, programming was live-streamed over the web to targeted influencers and businesses across the nation. University President Arthur F. Kirk, Jr., was interviewed during the programming.

The full programming schedule for the entire four-day broadcast can be found at

Additionally, Saint Leo University lent the use of some classroom and conference room space at our Tampa Education Center for use as a Social Media Command Center. This allowed bloggers familiar with Tampa Bay to get the word out about important programming and events using social media.
