Hosting a Citywide Meeting

This short video highlights lessons Cleveland learned hosting the RNC that apply to all meetings that draw big numbers.

Mike Burns, senior vice president of convention sales and services for Destination Cleveland, shares his team’s experiences hosting the Republican National Convention in July.

In order to keep the focus on the city, you must ensure city-wide collaboration between:
– The private sector
– The public sector
– Civic leadership

It’s also important for meeting organizers and destination reps to make sure that transportation will be seamless for attendees.
– Consider that taxis in mid-size cities may be limited
– Try ride sharing
