What to Expect From the Cleveland 2016 Republican National Convention

Photo of several US flags mounted to a light pole along a city blockThe greatest advantage of hosting the 2016 Republican National Convention is the estimated economic impact it will bring to Northeast Ohio. While it's tough to project the exact amount that will be generated from hosting the convention in Cleveland, the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa had an economic impact of more than $200 million in direct spending.

Many Clevelanders have questions about what to expect during this major event. The Host Committee is coming to WPPL to answer questions.  Please join us on Thursday, June 2 at 7:00pm in the Porter Room to find out more.
