It’s not too late to secure a room for the 2012 Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Charlotte, N.C., and the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA) is launching tools to help visitors easily locate the area hotels with availability.
As is customary for large conventions, the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) held large blocks of rooms in the area to accommodate delegates and guests. In accordance with the contract, the DNCC released unused rooms to hotels Monday, Aug. 13, giving visitors new opportunities to find rooms at previously sold-out hotels.
“We are pleased to see a low attrition rate from the DNC room block,” said Tom Murray, CEO of the CRVA. “We helped them secure 15,000 rooms in the market, and they were able to fill 93% of those rooms before the release date.
