Convention vendor directory surpasses 1000 businesses

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Over 1000 vendors are now listed in the DNCC's vendor directory.

Among the hopeful vendors are 255 minority-owned businesses, 22 businesses owned by persons with disabilities, 68 "green businesses" and 410 women-owned businesses.

"The vendor directory is one of the quickest and easiest ways for area businesses to market themselves to the 35,000 attendees of the convention," Elbra Wedgeworth, president and chair of the host committee said in a statement. "The level of participation this early on has exceeded our expectations, and we hope that more and more businesses take advantage of this service." - Denver Business Journal
