Foxx encourages businesses to compete for Democrats’ business
by Staff Writer
Foxx told local elected officials and members of the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce that businesses can become vendors by responding to requests for proposals at the convention website, www.Charlottein2012.com.
More than 140 hotels from Statesville to Rock Hill, S.C., have reserved 30,000 hotel rooms for the convention. Visit Lake Norman Executive Director Sally Ashworth said Lake Norman-area hotels “have already contracted 1,000 of our available 1,600 rooms in this market and that number is expected to climb.”
