Action Requested
Authorization for Executive Director or designee to execute License Agreements #13-283, #13-284, and #13-285 which do not conform with Rate Resolution R-00-86 as amended in that it provides for no charge for room rent, facility owned equipment, and services.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
  • Ordinance #91-71: Maintaining/Operating Manatee Convention Center
  • Resolution R-00-86, as amended: Policies/Procedures/Rate Schedule for the Convention Center.

Background Discussion
  • The Bradenton Area Convention Center will sponsor the first three ItWorks Bootcamps this upcoming calendar year.
  • Each event will bring in 3,000-4,000 agents globally for three to four days per camp.
  • BACVB will absorb our basic facility overhead, and ItWorks will pay for all third party related expenses, including food and beverages.
  • This unique sponsorship will allow us to begin an initial partnership that we believe will grow to double the boot camps annually at our convention center.
  • BACVB will also work with our hospitality industry to offer pre- and post-camp specials to educate the attendees on our beautiful destination.
