How to Manage Remote EmployeesFebruary 14, 2020
by Brian Hartz, Tampa Bay Editor, Business Observer
More and more companies that operate in industries that don’t require a significant investment in physical space — think professional services, such as marketing and advertising — are realizing big cost savings by shifting to a remote workforce.
Some, like Tampa-based eventPower — a tech firm that specializes in Software-as-a-Service event management products — have never operated from a physical office. Its 30 employees are scattered nationwide, which makes sense because the firm also provides on-site management and execution services for a wide range of conferences and trade shows.

Tampa Company Expands From Conference Planner to Software FirmMarch 19, 2019

Tampa tech company eventPower got into the software business by accident.
The company, founded 23 years ago by Frank Powell, originally was called Technology Forums and exclusively worked for government agencies, managing their conferences, before a spending scandal forced it to pivot.
Now, the company has three lines of business, about 30 employees around the United States, and $15 million in annual revenue.

Expect Laurie and Frank Powell to be a hit at cocktail parties—if they ever have time for them.
One day, they could be producing a conference of energy startups pitching the U.S. government Shark Tank-style. Another, they could be powering an animation festival for tens of thousands of people roaming the exhibits in wild costumes.
“No two days are ever alike,” Frank says with a laugh. “I still don’t think my mother knows what I do.”
