Tampa, Fla. - Tom Campbell, internationally recognized technology strategist and owner of Tom Campbell Enterprises, involved in retail, technology and renewable energy, has been named senior technology advisor and officer of the 2012 Republican National Convention.
Campbell has held similar roles at every Republican National Convention since the 1990s and will begin meeting with CE manufacturers to gauge their interest in participating with their technology and expertise at the 2012 event, he said.
"The 2012 event will attract the largest audience for a presidential nominating convention in years, given the interest in this election," Campbell said. "CE will play a major role [at the convention] like never before in conveying and carrying its messages."
Campbell said that over the years, cutting-edge technology from Panasonic, LG Electronics and Mitsubishi, among others, has made debuts during previous Republican National Conventions, and he expects similar introductions in a variety of categories from several well-known CE brands.
The Republican National Convention, will be held here the week of Aug. 27, 2012.
