About the Tampa Downtown Partnership

The Tampa Downtown Partnership fosters Tampa’s vibrant and diverse multi-use downtown neighborhoods and plays a key role in creating a 24-hour urban center where people can learn, live, work and play. Programs such as our Clean and Safe team and our transportation initiatives make accessing and navigating downtown an easy and enjoyable experience.

As a membership organization, we are driven to serve the downtown business community and are empowered by what each member brings to our organization. Together, we strive to improve the collective downtown community, to be an active conduit of information and resources, to promote a shared vision for Tampa’s downtown, and create and implement the plans that support that vision.
