How do I get media credentials?
The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee does not issue media credentials. The deadline for media credentials was April 15, 2012. Please see the DNCC Media Logistics page at for more information.

What’s the difference between the Host Committee and the DNCC?
The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee was established in the spring of 2012 to promote Charlotte as a convention city. It does so in part by fulfilling obligations in the Master Contract as signed by the city of Charlotte and the Democratic National Committee (DNCC). Following are some of those contractual obligations:

o Work in concert with the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) to ensure the successful support and production of the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
o Raise $36.65 million to fund official convention activities.
o Recruit, train and deploy around 10,000 volunteers.
o Engage a cross-section of Charlotte and the Carolinas to successfully host the DNC in 2012, including preparing businesses to provide the services needed in order to host the convention.

In addition, Charlotte in 2012 is making the most of this historic opportunity to tell Charlotte’s story and make the most of visibility brought by the convention to visitors from around the world.

The Democratic National Convention Committee is a not-for-profit organization responsible for planning and executing the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.

I live in the area but am not a delegate – what can I do to celebrate and experience the Convention?
We invite you to join us at Monday’s kick off event, CarolinaFest 2012, in Uptown Charlotte. This family friendly Labor Day celebration is free and open to the public. Sign up for updates on our website at to receive CarolinaFest details. Additionally, the public will have access to community credentials to participate in the proceedings on Thursday September 6 at Bank of America Stadium, where President Obama will accept the nomination—sign up at the DNCC website to receive information about community credentials when it becomes available.

I have a private residence to rent to DNC visitors, can I rent through you?
The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee will not promote or endorse any housing rental companies. Additionally, we really want our visitors to experience what is best about Charlotte – its people. We encourage Charlotteans and area residents to stick around, come to the free Labor Day event in Uptown Charlotte, and – considering that this is the first time a convention has been hosted in North Carolina – enjoy history in your backyard!

Why are all the hotel rooms being reserved for members of the media and delegates?
When the city of Charlotte bid to host the convention, it had to show that it had enough space to house all of the official guests that come to a convention, including members of the media and state delegations. It is important that these official guests stay in a place that is relatively close to the convention so that they do not miss any official convention proceedings.

Can the Convention sponsor my event?
While there will be some official hospitality and welcome events, the majority of events the week of the convention are hosted by independent entities and not sponsored by the Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee.

How can I reserve a venue to host an event?
The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee is pleased to partner with Visit Charlotte, a local tourism board, to provide concierge service by matching those interested in hosting a convention week event with appropriate venues. If you are interested in hosting an event, or have a commercial venue that will be available convention week, contact Stacey Harris at
