Last week, the Democrats showed its marketing enthusiasts through its first virtual national conference and the Republican National Convention is happening starting August 24 to August 27.

  • Most cable news stations will broadcast the event live and online, but it will also run via RNC’s YouTube.
  • RNC has confirmed that President Trump will make an appearance every night at the convention.
  • Also, many high-ranking Trump supporters will speak every night.
  • Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will speak, in particular, from Jerusalem, Israel.

The once-packed arena was transformed into a four-night informal for a Pep Rally party and its presidential candidate, Joe Biden.

Through live and pre-recorded speeches from some of the most important members of the party and some disgruntled Republicans, the virtual DNC demonstrated its ability to make the most of the party’s free press coverage.

This week, Republicans get their foothold at a Govt-era conference. While no one knows what to expect, it will reflect some of the most successful elements of DNC.

Where will the conference take place?

While the one-person conference was still on board, the event was to take place in Charlotte, North Carolina. The conference was moved to Jacksonville, Florida because Governor of North Carolina could not promise Trump that a full stadium would be allowed due to COVID concerns.

That event has also been cancelled. Now, much of the conference’s official business, including the roll call of delegates, still takes place in Charlotte, but in a measured, physically distant setting.

However, many speakers deliver their words from faraway places, often outside the country’s capital. The President will deliver his acceptance speech directly from the White House, and many more speeches will take place on the White House lawn.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will speak , in particular, from Jerusalem, Israel. But many in the party believe the Trump Hotel in Washington will be a community hub for the event.

The Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium is just around the corner from the hotel and is also the venue for a few talks.
