Business & Community Leaders in Tampa Bay Connect at 10th Annual NetFest

March 30, 2012

Pasco County, Florida — Pasco Economic Development Council is hosting its 10th Annual NetFest on April 18 from 5:00pm – 8:30pm at Starkey Ranch in Odessa. NetFest is one of Pasco’s largest networking events of the year and is a “Who’s Who of Pasco County” for the business and community leaders of Tampa Bay. Last year, over 250 people gathered at Starkey Ranch for the big event with key business leaders and elected officials in attendance. This year they are expecting over 300 people in attendance.  Who attends NetFest?  Business owners and CEOs of Tampa Bay’s most recognized companies as well as commercial realtors, land developers, bankers, elected officials, and this year many election-year hopefuls. Pasco EDC urges people attending the outdoor event to “throw on their blue jeans and grab a cowboy hat” for an informal night of networking — minus the speeches or awards. While there may not be a master of ceremonies, there will be BBQ, drinks, country music and plenty of chili for everyone. Sponsors of NetFest will be participating in a chili cook-off that is judged by all attendees. “There is a ton of buzz about Pasco right now, especially since the County just won four ‘Future of the Region’ awards,” said John Hagen, Pasco EDC President/CEO. “If you want to do business in Pasco County, or with a Pasco County company, you’ll want to attend NetFest.” Tickets are $35 for investors and guests, and $45 for all others. Reservations for NetFest can be made online at To sponsor NetFest or enter the chili cook-off and earn the title of “Pasco’s Best Chili” contact Suzanne Renczkowski at or call 813-926-0827.
