“On behalf of Milwaukee’s business community, we are proud to welcome the Republican National Convention to Milwaukee in 2024. The Republican National Committee’s decision to bring its convention to Milwaukee represents yet another step forward for our region as an internationally recognized destination with the people, vibrant entertainment venues, infrastructure and expertise it takes to successfully host large-scale events.
We congratulate the team at VISIT Milwaukee for their leadership in securing this opportunity. It is remarkable for an American city to secure two straight major party nominating conventions – a ringing endorsement for everything Milwaukee has to offer.
This convention will directly benefit Milwaukee businesses and their employees. Beyond that, this is yet another chance for Milwaukee to shine in an international spotlight. And there are few events larger in scale, visibility and impact than a national political convention.
Our approach to this event is exactly the same as it was for pursuing the 2020 Democratic National Convention: Instead of red or blue, we represent green – the color of additional millions of dollars that will now flow into Milwaukee.
Throughout the bidding process for this convention, we heard that strong bipartisan support was one of the most compelling aspects of our bid. We thank Mayor Cavalier Johnson, County Executive David Crowley and many other officials for putting aside potential partisan disagreements in the name of doing what’s best for our region. That’s leadership. If we can come together to do this, the possibilities of what can we accomplish together are endless.”
-- MMAC President Tim Sheehy
