Organizers for the Democratic National Convention have announced JCP Construction of Milwaukee will be the general contractor for the 2020 Democratic National Convention.
The Democratic National Convention Committee also said yesterday that Milwaukee-based Hargrove will handle event management.
JCP Construction has been involved in some of the city’s largest developments in recent years, including Milwaukee Mitchell Airport, Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons, and Fiserv Forum, where the convention will be held.
Another local business called Populous has been tapped as the “event architect,” partnering with American Design Inc. on design elements for the convention.
Construction and event management efforts will be led by DNCC Senior Director of Hall Management Jeffrey Wexler, according to a release.
“The eyes of the country will be on Milwaukee during the 2020 Democratic National Convention and we are intent on ensuring attendees and viewers alike feel the energy and excitement of our host city,” said DNCC CEO Joe Solmonese.
More than 50,000 visitors are expected to come to Milwaukee for the upcoming convention, to be held July 13-16.
