It’s My Affair and The Main Event were two of the 13 vendors awarded event planning contracts for the Democratic National Convention’s delegation parties this fall. The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee announced the contracts at a ceremony last week at the Bechtler Museum.

“I’d like to thank the Host Committee for their continued hard work and commitment to ensuring our convention visitors come away excited by all Charlotte has to offer—from its fantastic restaurants and entertainment, to its incomparable Southern hospitality,” said Travis Dredd, Chief of Staff for the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC), in a statement.

The Delegate Welcome Events will be held on September 2 and will be divided between 12 venues around the region that will host the approximately 6,000 delegates. The venues represent the diversity, culture, landscape, and history of the Charlotte region. Rather than hosting all delegates at one venue, choosing to host these welcome events at 12 venues expands business opportunities to companies across the region.

• Rhonda Caldwell’s The Main Event will host the delegates from Florida, Mississippi and Alabama at the Historic Rosedale Plantation.
