The St. Petersburg Conference on World Affairs is a cooperative venture of a group of civic-minded St. Petersburg residents and the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.
Multiple panels of distinguished diplomats, military, media, and academic experts will discuss critical international issues of the day. The public, including students of USF St. Petersburg and other area universities, are cordially invited to attend the conference free of charge. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis.
The launch of the St. Petersburg Conference on World Affairs has been a resounding success. Several thousand local residents and students attend each of the discussions every year. Participants show their support through both financial contributions as well as their overwhelmingly positive comments on the presentations.
Our objective is to make available to the people of the Tampa Bay area information, and insights, on foreign affairs issues which are critical to our lives and well-being.
