September 8 Gala Postponed Due to Hurricane

Due to safety concerns related to Hurricane Irma, we regretfully announce that we will be postponing the Florida Inventors Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and gala that had been scheduled for Friday, Sept. 8. We intend to reschedule the event at the Hilton Tampa Downtown in the near future.

At the University of South Florida, our first priority is the safety of our community. While we are disappointed, we greatly look forward to an evening in the future when we can all celebrate the eight phenomenal individuals who have been selected to the 2017 class of the Florida Inventors Hall of Fame. The announcement on a new date will be forthcoming.
