Dem Convention, Day 1: Welcome to Philly

The PR Newswire Audience Relations team is covering the DNC! Follow us for a behind-the-scenes look.


Talk about a busy Day 1 in Philadelphia.

The Democratic National Convention immediately proved to be a different atmosphere than the GOP Convention in Cleveland. There was more people in town, more space to cover, and a lot of distance in between. So, a lot of the first day was spent figuring out how to get around.

Once PR Newswire audience relations managers Anna Jasinski and Christine Cube got a handle on things, the duo canvassed Media Pavilions A, B, and C to ensure journalists and members of the media were plugged into the official convention newsfeed.

Jasinski and Cube closed out the day at the Politico Hub, working on sign ups for PR Newswire for Journalists and listening to the first day’s main speakers.
