Website kicks off preparation for the 2012 convention in Charlotte, North Carolina

WASHINGTON, DC – Plus Three, a minority-owned business that is a leader in social media and technology for nonprofit and political organizations, designed and implemented CharlotteIn2012.com, which was launched last week by the convention’s host committee. The site will allow convention organizers to share information with attendees and reach their $37 million fundraising goal with the backing of Plus Three’s industry-leading ARCOS system.

“The beautiful, diverse, and dynamic city of Charlotte is a fitting host for the 2012 Democratic National Convention. We hope the social media and fundraising tools Plus Three has honed will reflect the vibrancy of the city and the excitement that is already building for the 2012 presidential race,” said Juan Proaño, president and founder of Plus Three. “Through the tools that we have built for the committee, over the next year CharlotteIn2012.com will become the hub of information for the millions who will follow and attend the convention. We are proud that the site continues to build on our success of creating a state-of-the-art presence for many important political and progressive causes.”

CharlotteIn2012.com includes Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ integration. The site combines tools for volunteers and donors with information for delegates and the thousands who will flock to Charlotte in just over a year. The site also features a “Making History” multimedia archive of past Democratic National Conventions, an online store, and a vendor directory that will help national organizations connect with local and regional businesses in order to meet their Democratic National Convention-related needs. Business owners can register and create a company profile that can be searched by categories including services, company size and other demographics.

The Convention will draw an expected 35,000 visitors to the Charlotte area, including 15,000 media, 600 – 700 delegates, members of both the U.S. House and Senate and other significant figures in public life from around the world. It is anticipated that there will be more than 1,000 events held in Charlotte during the convention, in addition to official DNC activity.

Plus Three’s work for the Charlotte in 2012 Host Committee is just one among a host of examples of their capabilities. To learn more, visit Plus Three’s website at http://www.plusthree.com, or contact Alice Lincoln at (866) 945-4889 ext. 707.
