About Emerge Tampa Bay
Emerge Tampa Bay is a program of the Greater Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce that focuses on connecting and mentoring young professionals between the ages of 21 to 35. Emerge Tampa Bay was launched in May 2004 and develops emerging leaders in the business community. Emerge Tampa Bay provides young professionals access to mentorships and educational opportunities to facilitate professional growth, community engagement, and leadership readiness.
Emerge Tampa Bay came to Bayshore Solutions seeking design and development of a website that catered to the needs of the program while maintaining organization consistency with the parent website of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce. Data integrations and functionality such as event calendars, member testimonials, and content administration needed to be connected, yet the personality of the Emerge site needed to convey the program’s individuality.
Bayshore Solutions built a sub-site for Emerge Tampa Bay under the same content management system platform as the parent Tampa Chamber of Commerce website. Creating both websites using the Kentico Software CMS platform allowed web administrators to seamlessly edit content for all sites under one system and connected the relevant data feeds and integrations for consistency across both sites. Emerge Tampa Bay’s website now features its unique personality, while still coordinated and complimentary to the Tampa Chamber website. The sites functionality presents detailed information about future events, shares member testimonials, and highlights ways for Emerge and Chamber members to connect.
