Tampa Convention Center Adds The UPS Store

 To meet the needs of conventioneers, business travelers, frequenters of Sail Pavilion, and others in the downtown Tampa area, The UPS Store - the nation's largest franchisor of retail shipping, postal, printing and business service centers -- has opened a new store inside the Tampa Convention Center. The full-service center will provide a variety of printing, packing, shipping and other amenities for the venue and its many visitors.

The Tampa Convention Center is a 600,000-square-foot event space located along the famous Riverwalk in the heart of Tampa, Florida, adjacent to Sail Pavilion, a 360-degree waterfront bar and performance venue. The convention center boasts a 200,000-square-foot exhibit hall, 36 meeting rooms, and enough ballroom and trade show space to make the venue a premier location for conferences, conventions, business summits, and other corporate events.

"Business travelers and convention guests, and locals as well, can now use The UPS Store for all their pack and ship and printing needs, including business cards, invitations, flyers, and wide format banners and posters," says The UPS Store franchisee Todd Blanchard. "Ultimately, our goal is to assist in making convention center events run smoothly by providing convenient, high-quality copying, printing, shipping, and other pre- and post-event business services."

The UPS Store in the Tampa Convention Center will also offer several amenities that business travelers in particular will find valuable. To reduce their reliance on last minute print jobs, customers can send their print files to The UPS Store prior to arriving and have their jobs produced ahead of time. Binding, lamination, finishing, and folding services will also be available. Additionally, event coordinators can save time by utilizing The UPS Store to provide inbound and outbound shipping of trade show and other event materials.
