For the first time in 25 years, a major national convention that shall remain a mystery – until it’s unveiled on Oct. 22 – is returning to Cincinnati, Ohio, in 2017, according to Cincinnati USA Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), the city’s official tourism and convention promotion agency.
To be joined by convention delegates inside the Duke Energy Convention Center at 10 a.m., Cincinnati USA President and CEO Dan Lincoln and Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann will name this major convention.
Representatives from the CVB have dropped hints: The convention is estimated to bring in over 4,000 attendees, 5,500 hotel room nights and expected visitor spending of approximately $1.6 million.
A live performance by members from clubs throughout Ohio and Northern Kentucky will also be a part of the festivities.
In case of inclement weather, the event will move to the DECC lobby of the convention center.
