The Republican National Convention Selects Official Merchandiser
While the merchandise provider for the Democratic National Convention was chosen months ago, the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee selected its official merchandise provider for the Republican National Convention yesterday. According to Crain's Cleveland Business, Mogadore, Ohio-based ASW Global was chosen as the official merchandise group for the convention, which runs July 18 to 21 in Cleveland.
The company's Event Merchandising Group will handle designing, marketing and selling signage and accessories for the convention. The designs feature a trademarked logo with an elephant and a guitar or the Cleveland skyline. Buyers also can opt for merchandise featuring the "Proud Host" logo. Merchandise includes T-shirts, balloons, buttons and aprons.
Merchandise will be available at an online store, as well as a handful of physical locations.
"ASW and Main Event have a proven track record of excellence in customer service, and we are proud to partner with this Northeast Ohio-based firm to provide merchandise for this historic event in Cleveland," David Gilbert, president and CEO of the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee, said, according to Crain's Cleveland Business. "With a wide variety of affordable keepsakes, residents and visitors will have plenty of opportunities to purchase merchandise to commemorate Cleveland's hosting of this year's Republican National Convention."
"It is an honor to be chosen as the official merchandise provider by the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee," Andre Thornton, president and CEO of ASW Global, said, according to Crain's Cleveland Business.
