The 2012 Republican National Convention will be held at the Tampa Bay Times Forum August 27-30, 2012.
Organized and managed by the Committee on Arrangements (COA) of the Republican National Committee (RNC), the convention will host 2,286 delegates and 2,125 alternate delegates from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five territories.
The convention will also include approximately 15,000 credentialed media—an international press corps second only in size to this summer’s London Olympic Games—as well as a global audience that will witness a “convention without walls” thanks to our Internet and social media efforts.
Georgia National Committeeman Alec Poitevint serves as COA chairman. Wyoming National Committeewoman Jan Larimer and Wisconsin National Committeewoman Mary Buestrin serve as co-chairmen.
Convention leadership veteran William D. Harris serves as convention CEO—the same position he held in 2004. Harris was the convention director for the McCain-Palin campaign in 2008. Michael V. Miller, a veteran of 13 conventions, serves as convention COO.
Nearly 150 staffers will eventually live, dine and shop in the Tampa Bay area in preparation for the 2012 Republican National Convention. And roughly 50,000 people are expected to visit the Tampa Bay area during the gathering.
2012 will mark the third time the Republican Party convenes its convention in Florida. The Sunshine State also played host to the 1968 and 1972 Republican National Conventions that nominated Richard M. Nixon. Both were held in Miami Beach.
