Bailey Morris Honored with 2018 CSM of the Year Award
By Hannah Rago
This week, our very own Bailey Morris won the 2018 Convention Services Manager of the Year Award at the annual ESPA Celebrate Services Week event hosted by Visit Tampa Bay.
Morris plays a vital role in the preparation and execution of some of the convention center’s largest events. Some of the conventions that she has worked with include Tampa Bay Comic Con and the AWP Literary Conference.
Tampa Bay Comic Con welcomed over 50,000 attendees to the convention center as well as several celebrity guests. The AWP is the largest Literary Conference in North America and brought over 10,000 literary scholars, authors, publishers, and fans along with it.
The ESPA event celebrates and honors the event services professionals from local hotels, Visit Tampa Bay and the Tampa Convention Center. The Event Services Professionals Association (ESPA) started this annual tradition in 2010 to spotlight the important role of Convention Services. It is an opportunity to network with other Convention Services Managers (CSM) and celebrate the profession.
We are proud of Bailey's hard work and dedication to providing our clients with the best experience for their conventions. We are grateful for all of our staff members that help make our convention center the premier conference facility in the South East.
Congratulations Bailey on your outstanding achievement!
