Don’t just take our word for it

"Cincinnati was a wonderful city for the NAACP Convention.  It is a tier one city for us … and it’s really put our centennial city on notice.  Everyone has commented about what (New York City) has to do to compete with what has happened to Cincinnati."

- Roslyn Brock, Chairman
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)

"The decision to award the games to Cincinnati was heavily influenced by the city’s bid for the Summer Olympics. This bid was proof that Cincinnati was open and enthusiastic about hosting a major event. By including it in our short-list and ultimately awarding it the 2012 World Choir Games, we have found a partner that attaches the same importance to the original Olympic ideal as I do."

"A main factor for our decision is that there are very nice people in Cincinnati.  They’re warm, they’re welcoming, they’re friendly.  When you have people from all over the world competing in Cincinnati, you want them to bring home a good impression ... Not only of the United States but of the whole city.  That is what Cincinnati has to offer.”

-Günter Titsch, President, INTERKULTUR
2012 World Choir Games

"When it came time for our membership to choose a city for our 82nd National Convention, it was really an easy decision.  It came down to the top-notch convention center, convenient hotel package and great downtown area …  Those were the winning factors for Cincinnati."

- Brent A. Wilkes, National Executive Director
League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)

 "When you do city-wide conventions, it takes everybody working together to make it a success, and we really saw that in Cincinnati.  Our numbers just grew and grew, which was a great thing for Cincinnati, and it contributed to our success."

- Ron Underwood, Meeting Planner
National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA)

"We know we are going to have a great convention in Cincinnati … we didn’t give this to them, they’ve earned it.  Strong leadership, strong support from local government officials and strong support from community decision makers ... that’s what’s happening here in Cincinnati."

- Oliver Washington Jr., Imperial Potentate
Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine (A.E.A.O.N.M.S.)
