About Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina



Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina will be the scene of SAO17 Annual Meeting. The hotel is located on the Garrison Channel of the Tampa Bay, and is nestled along the scenic Tampa Bay waterfront adjacent to the Tampa Convention Center. It provides atmospheric views, downtown convenience and modern luxury.

Our social activities will be perfect opportunities to meet up with exhibitors and friends. On Thursday evening there will be a Kentucky Derby party, complete with a bourbon bar, four man band and Best Fascinator/Best Bow Tie contests! Friday night will be an unforgettable evening and dinner at the famous Florida Aquarium. Lastly - don’t forget to bring your golf shoes for Saturday afternoon - we'll be heading to TopGolf for the afternoon! Not to mention that our location in Tampa is perfect for a jaunt over to Ybor City or a walk across the bridge to Tampa's Harbour Island for multiple restaurants.
