About this conference
The 2012 Democratic and Republican Conventions provide a rare opportunity both to connect with the country's leadership ranks and to participate in one of the nation's most cherished traditions. These spirited gatherings are equal parts policy, politics, and celebration and attract the power centers of each party, including state, local, and federal officials, senior party leadership, national media, and business leaders.
National Journal and The Atlantic will combine their brand strengths at the 2012 conventions for special on-site events in Tampa, Florida, and Charlotte, North Carolina. From breaking news and probing analysis of Washington policy and politics to thoughtful reconnaissance on the big ideas shaping the national conversation, National Journal and The Atlantic will provide a panoramic perspective on the world of American policy and politics during this pivotal election year.
