Additional Information

Chicago was for many decades "The Convention Capital", especially with regards to political conventions. Between the years 1860 and 1996, Chicago hosted no less than 25 National Conventions. In 1940, President Frank D. Roosevelt was nominated for a third term at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Chicago was also the "Convention Capital" with regard to non-political conventions for many years until it was dethroned by Las Vegas and other cities.
