For all the discussion about the Democratic National Convention.
Largest by what metric? By people coming, absolutley not. Summerfest has what, 800,000 attendees?(I get they're not unique but still) Harley fest has 100,000? But in terms of $$ entering the community, absolutley, yeah. In terms of spotlight on the city, this would also be the largest event.Would the DNC convention be unequivocally the largest event in Milwaukee's history? The only thing I can think of that comes close would be the Harley 100th
Just my personal opinion, but I would love one with like the top 5 tallest buildings in the cityAs a first post for this thread, I am currently contacting people who will be able to make little Milwaukee statuettes that I will be selling to all the convention visitors. Think of the statuettes you see in Paris! EX:

I think in terms of wealth, and power it'll easily be the most prominent event. There will be some real movers and shakers here in entertainment business and politics. Milwaukee making a favorable impression as a city on the rise could bring in a good deal of new investment.Largest by what metric? By people coming, absolutley not.

Why do you give the shit candidates the good landmarks???Last October, the Milwaukee County Zoo had special Mold-A-Rama figures available in their machines that looked like different Halloween characters (spooky ghost, devil, vampire, etc.)
How about we get Mold-A-Rama to put machines all around downtown and each one makes a plastic molded version of all the different DNC presidential candidates standing next to a different Milwaukee icon?
You could have Elizabeth Warren standing next to City Hall, Beto next to the art museum, Cory Booker next to US Bank and Bernie next to Turner Hall, of course. :lol:
