Welcome

The HEC Network fills a need in the Tampa Bay Area by providing an affordable and high-quality networking association specifically designed for the Hospitality, Entrepreneur, and Community businesses.

Professionals within these industries are typically under-served in mainstream business networking groups and associations. Traditional networking meetings often do not have the right schedule, educational programs, resources, and contacts that are relevant to owners, managers, and professionals within the Hospitality, Entrepreneur, Community businesses.

The HEC Network caters to Hospitality, Entrepreneur, Community businesses and provides owners, managers, and other professionals a comfortable and convenient environment to meet, learn, and build strength at a local level. We strongly believe in a no-pressure networking environment and encourage members to simply be themselves. We provide resources, support, and a comfortable networking environment, allowing each of our members ample opportunity to get to know others and their businesses.

Enjoy an interactive, educational networking organization where you can connect, build alliances, and grow your business with a unique group of seasoned professionals.
