TAMPA, Fla.  – Republicans organizing their party’s upcoming 2012 national convention will “use every available communications platform and technology to create a nationwide discussion about America’s future and Mitt Romney’s plans to strengthen the economy and create new jobs,” William Harris, convention CEO announced today.

“Wherever you live, whatever device you use, we want you to engage as an active participant in this convention,” Harris said.  “This convention is about every American’s future, and everyone has a stake in it so we created a ‘Convention without Walls’ to make this the most open and accessible event in history.”

Organizers will break new ground by using a variety of the latest technologies available and pioneering new efforts for presidential nominating conventions. Here are four elements of the Convention without Walls program:

“These exciting advances wouldn’t be possible without major improvements to the communications infrastructure in Tampa Bay by our Official Providers,” Harris noted.  “Many of them will be permanent, making Tampa Bay an attractive location for future conventions, business meetings and corporate relocation.”
