Strict #DNC16 requirements rule out a lot of cities

by: Oreo

Milwaukee was out of the running before the bids even happened according to the Milwaukee Business Journal. Requirements of 100 skyboxes and the need to have control of the venue two months before the convention put Milwaukee out of the picture. 

Some additional requirements are:

  • At least 200,000 square feet of indoor work space for the media in immediate proximity to the convention facility;
  • At least 200,000 square feet of outdoor, paved space close to the facility for satellite trucks and other equipment, along with another 180,000 square feet in the immediate proximity for staging of at least 250 vehicles;
  • A commitment of at least 17,000 full-service hotel rooms and 1,000 suites within 30 minutes of the convention facility. Participating hotels must commit 80 percent of their rooms and 100 percent of meetings and convention space to the convention;
  • At least 250 buses for the exclusive use of the convention. Buses should have a “clean air” component;
  • Reserved, 24-hour parking space for at least 5,000 vehicles adjacent to the convention complex.
