Not only has the purpose of the space been redesigned, but the look and feel have also been changed. We transformed a parking garage into an innovative media hub. Every inch of Media Row is camera ready at any moment. Windows have been replaced to allow more natural light, carpet has been laid, light fixtures have been replaced, and paneling has been customized to fit the theme of RNC in CLE. This around-the-clock space has been built and designed for maximum Convention coverage for surrogates and media who operate 24/7 to deliver news to Americans watching the Convention activity from across the country.
"We have seen an immense amount of changes in news consumption since 2012, and Media Row will help us engage these new media platforms in unique ways," said Convention Director of Communications Kirsten Kukowski. "This is the only space of its kind in 2016 and we are very proud to share our message with national, regional, local, and social media outlets around the clock during the week of Convention. The goal is that no matter the channel, beginning July 17, RNC in CLE will be available everywhere."
