The 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC) will convene in Cleveland, Ohio on July 18-21, 2016. The event will formally select Donald J. Trump as the nominee for president for the Republican Party - the first non-politician to receive the nomination since former president Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952.

The decision to schedule the 41st RNC about a month earlier than previous editions was made in order to bypass a Federal Election Commission campaign spending restriction and to facilitate earlier campaigning in Ohio, a key battleground swing-state which every winning presidential candidate since 1964 has won. The Ohio winning streak for Republican presidential candidates stretches even further, when Abraham Lincoln triumphed over Democratic candidate George B. McClellan in 1860. Another reason behind the timing of the convention is the Rio summer Olympics (August 5 - 21), which is certain to draw the nation’s attention away from costly campaign advertisements.

The decision to select Cleveland as host, the first time since 1936, was made by the party after a keenly contested selection contest. The hosting job was an extremely highly sought after honor as aside from the prestige, the event is expected to generate revenues in excess of $400 million to the local economy. Other cities that were considered as host include Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Columbus and Phoenix were eliminated on April 2, 2014 after a preliminary review. Cincinnati and Las Vegas, meanwhile, withdrew on May 22, 2014. On June 25, 2014, the Republican National Committee announced that the cities of Cleveland and Dallas would continue to the final round of consideration to host the 2016 Convention. The recommendation to select 'Cleveland 2016' was made following a final review by RNC's site selection committee on July 8, 2014.
