Since 1999, Tucker/Hall has been a national leader in pushing for reform of US policy toward Cuba. We have organized and led grassroots and grasstops efforts to lift the trade and travel blockade. We have taken delegations of elected officials, community leaders and business leaders to Cuba to engage in a meaningful dialogue with Cuban officials, artists and entrepreneurs. Tucker/Hall has also hosted delegations of Cuban officials to the United States and has sponsored and hosted national seminars to educate the US public and business community about Cuba.

In 2015, we helped lead the delegation of St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman to Cuba, a group of arts leaders from the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership to Cuba and an inbound group of nine Cuban officials who visited St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay.

Over the years we successfully advocated for the increase of nonstop flights from the US to Cuba, for arts exchanges, for a potential Cuban consulate in Florida, for increased entrepreneurial trade and many other issues.

Tucker/Hall has also represented US businesses who have legally done business in Cuba, cultural groups that had exchanges and nonprofits that visited the country. Most recently we helped broker the historic agreement between the Florida Aquarium and the National Aquarium of Cuba.

Our long experience dealing with Cuba issues and our unique relationships in Cuba can help your organization create a Cuba plan, deal with Cuba-related issues and successfully enter the Cuban market.

How We Can Help

As Cuba opens up, communications consultants throughout the world are saying they can help. But Tucker/Hall really can. Our Tampa office is less than 90 minutes away from Havana by plane, so our senior counselors travel to Cuba frequently – bringing business leaders looking for new opportunities. Let us know if we can help you.
