TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2012 Republican National Convention selected LG Electronics USA as "Official Digital Display and Electronics Provider" for the convention, which wrapped up last night.
More than 900 LG displays, including LED HDTVs, Smart TVs and CINEMA 3D models, were seen throughout the convention by delegates, government officials, VIPs and media in Tampa for the August 27-30 event.
Under its agreement with Republican National Convention's Committee on Arrangements, LG has supplied displays that have been installed throughout the main convention venue, the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and the Tampa Convention Center, which served as workspace to support the estimated 15,000 media personnel in Tampa providing worldwide news coverage.
