SPoTlight Productions is a full-service event production company based out of the walls of Skatepark of Tampa, in Tampa, Florida. Although not exclusively specific to skateboarding events, SPoTlight can make your contest, demo, or party a complete success, from concept to execution. SPoTlight has been very fortunate to garner major skateboard industry support and presence at all of their events, which is the major difference that sets their projects apart from the standard, made-for-TV skateboarding events.
Skatepark of Tampa is dedicated to skateboarding. Founded in 1993 during skateboarding's dark years, SPoT soon became a shining light on the east coast. Over the years Skatepark has become world-renowned for it's "for skateboarders, by skateboarders" events, specifically Tampa Am and Tampa Pro. Skatepark of Tampa was started to simply provide a consistent, fun place to skate with friends and will continue provide a 'real' facility for skateboarders to visit from around the globe. '93 'til infinity...
World-renowned Skatepark of Tampa reigns when it comes to real skateboarding events. The Tampa Am and Tampa Pro have been going strong for well over a decade and continue to gain momentum. Founder and owner, Brian Schaefer, thought that wasn't enough, so a few years back he started Damn Am, along with Rob Meronek, Skatepark of Tampa software engineer. Damn Am nationally consists of two annual top amateur contests that cover both the east and west coast as well as two International events, the AmsterDamn Am and Damn Am Canada. The Skatepark of Tampa Crew, which consists of Schaefer, Meronek, and Ryan Clements, was continually being asked to run more and more skateboarding events such as organizing demos at ASR and Surf Expo to running events like Texas Skate Jam and Adio's Battle of the Shops. Also, jumping on board as Head Judge for Tampa Pro back in 2001, was former Santa Cruz and Foundation pro (1990 - 1998), Jason Rothmeyer, and has been working with them ever since. It was time to consolidate and put all of these events under one roof, SPoTlight Productions.
