The MKE 2024 Host Committee recently launched Vendor Connection (, a tool to connect local businesses with opportunities around the 2024 Republican National Convention taking place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Vendor Connection will be crucial in gathering information so that the MKE 2024 Host Committee and other interested groups can connect businesses with convention-related opportunities, such as event planning and hospitality services.

“The launch of Vendor Connection will serve as an important milestone for businesses who are looking to connect with opportunities around the convention in 2024. We encourage businesses looking for opportunities to submit their information on our website,” said Alison Prange, chief of staff and senior advisor for the MKE 2024 Host Committee. “We are excited to showcase Milwaukee’s small businesses to the world and are hopeful that the impact of the convention will stretch beyond 2024.”

Businesses that complete the form will be included in a database accessible by the Host Committee and its partners. The MKE 2024 Host Committee will provide email updates to businesses that submit their information to highlight available opportunities.

The MKE 2024 Host Committee will provide other community groups like VISIT Milwaukee access to the list for future large-scale events in Milwaukee, so that the convention’s impact can benefit the city for years to come.
