One of the downsides to being a convention town is that you get a lot of kooks passing through. That will be the case this weekend, when Denver hosts the Left Coast Crime Convention. Denver novelist Mario Acevedo (surely you’ve read his The Nymphos of Rocky Flats or The Undead Kama Sutra) will capitalize on the convention by cranking up the “Denver Murder Machine,” a bus tour of famous Denver murder spots, including 12th & Speer where former Bronco Darrent Williams died.
PR Week looks at the roles the host cities will play for the Democratic and Republican national conventions, and gives a shout out to Linhart and Schenkein for their roles in Denver’s preparations.
Among those hiring this week: Turner, Schenkein, GBSM, Heedum, JP Morgan Chase, Frontier Airlines, Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, Democratic National Convention Committee, Colorado Media Matters, AIMCO and Colorado Confidential.
