You have worked hard to get to IMS Tampa and we appreciate you. This year, in true Florida sunshine style, we are replacing the annual “Welcome Reception” with the Monday Kickoff Celebration.”

We will have music food, cocktails and some truly unique and amazing entertainment that only Tampa can provide. This is for you, so please join in the fun! We would love to serve you a Pina Colada!

We will offer free themed food stations: Havana Night Theme; Caribbean Island Theme; Summer BBQ Theme

Visit the beer tents sponsored by Agilent Technologies and Copper Mountain Technologies. And the Sails Pavilion sponsored by High Frequency Electronics.

In front of the convention center, the Tampa Bay Water Ski Team will entertain you with their impressive skills, high speed jumps and exciting tricks so bring your camera! The IMS2014 committee received special permission from the United States Coast Guard for the high-flying show. You have front row seats!

On Monday, come register at the Tampa Bay Convention Center and stay for the party. If you have an IMS Badge, then you can access the event.

And remember to go #TielessInTampa!
