This summer is filled with major events across the country, but the two that will garner the most national attention are the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. The presidential primary is currently in top gear, and it seems like just about anything could happen.
The 2016 Democratic Convention will take place between July 25th and July 28th at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and is expected to push city and event planners to their absolute limits. One of the biggest things to expect is the use of new technologies to bring the convention beyond the hall to engage more Americans than ever before.
Philadelphia Mayor Edward G. Rendell recently shared with The New York Times a few ways in which the convention will reshape the area around the venue. The adjacent Broad Street will transform into a one-way thoroughfare and planners have worked to make more than 11,000 hotel rooms available within walking distance of the convention.
The 2016 Republican National Convention will take place between July 18th and July 21st at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, and security is a top concern for planners and local law enforcement.
Fourth Wall Events is well versed in the steps it takes to securing your next event, and urge that this is never taken lightly.
In fact, the Cleveland Police Department recently received $50 million in federal grants to upgrade security capabilities before the Republican National Convention. Quicken Loans Arena has space for more than 20,000 people, who will transform the surrounding area during the four-day event.
Both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions are expected to be enormous spectacles and inspirations for future event planning endeavors across the country. The team at Fourth Wall Event is eager to watch and take meticulous notes to expand on our capabilities!
