Some boosters of Tampa's downtown don't like the idea of a West Shore district events center that might compete with the city-owned Tampa Convention Center. Mayor Pam Iorio isn't among them. She told a gathering of Hillsborough hotel business executives Thursday that "one day'' there could be a West Shore center. "Why not?'' she asked. "Isn't there enough vibrancy to go around in our city?'' Iorio said she supports a study of the proposed center that would be paid for with hotel bed taxes.
