For over 10 years, the Chamber has taken an annual Benchmarking Visit to investigate new programs and initiatives in a city similar to our community. It gives us a chance to study one of America’s other great cities and adapt its best practices to meet the growing needs of Tampa Bay. Past visits include Baltimore, San Diego, Memphis, Seattle, Boston, Denver, Charlotte, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Nashville, Pittsburgh, and Minneapolis/Saint Paul.
