Preparing for the DNC

This summer, all eyes will be on Milwaukee as we prepare to host the 2020 Democratic National Convention. This is an enormous opportunity to showcase all the things that make our Downtown a great place to live, work, play and do business.

Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 is working closely with the planning committee, as well as local, state and federal officials to ensure that our community shines on this global platform, and remains safe and open for business throughout the convention. For this reason, we will be publishing an ongoing DNC Download newsletter--a downtown stakeholder's guide to preparing for the convention. Stay in the know by joining our database.
