Public Affairs Campaign Succeeds by Taking it to the Streets

It's a controversial and growing way for cash-strapped cities to attract private developers: create public-private convention centers/hotels and bet that revenue for city coffers will follow.

Of course, existing hotels in the area argue that any tax-exempt competitors pose a severe threat and would ultimately cost them business and force them to cut jobs. The ensuing debates -- which have popped up in several cities in the last few years, including Denver, Houston, Sacramento, Calif. and Washington, D.C. -- take on all the characteristics of a political campaign, where PR can play a crucial and often decisive role.
