RNC 2012 Small Business Network

Lines of Communication announced it is participating in the Small Business Network of the 2012 Tampa Bay Host Committee in support of the Republican National Convention. We are excited about the boost to our local economy that this event will produce and our ability to support government and civic activities that  impact on our communities and beyond.

The 2012 Republican National Convention will take place from August 27 – 30 in downtown Tampa, Florida. With approximately 13,000 – 15,000 members of the media in attendance, the RNC is the single largest media event in the world except for the Olympic Games. The Host Committee has more than 15,000 hotel rooms booked for each night of the Convention and more than 75 event venues under contract. The direct spending impact for the Convention will total approximately $150 – $175 million. This does not take into account the economic “multiplier” effect which can equate to 2.5 times the actual amount of hard dollars spent.
