The DNC committee may also see construction at the new Intermodal Facility site, according to a source. Transportation and viable hotel space are key selling points on whether the DNC brings its large-scale event to a city.
Brian Hilson with the Birmingham Business Alliance is part of a group working with the city on the DNC site visit. Hilson says the DNC committee will also want to see major hotels. He adds that, although Birmingham is smaller than other bidding cities, including Philadelphia and New York, it meets the DNC's basic needs.
As ABC 33/40 first reported, a free "DNC Pitch Party" is set for Monday at Iron City in Birmingham. The venue's spokesperson says the public is invited and the first 900 people to show up will be allowed inside.
The Mayor's Office confirms the party, however would not release any details regarding the site visit.
Earlier this month, the City Council approved $14,000 to pay for costs associated with the committee's visit to Birmingham.
