We are thrilled to officially announce that we will be in Cleveland, OH on July 18-21for the 2016 Republican National Convention as well as Philadelphia, PA the following week (July 25-28) for the Democratic National Convention.

The Republican and Democratic National Conventions represent two of the most popular and widely reported political news events in the world. During both conventions, hundreds of television networks, online and print publications, media outlets and bloggers will generate round-the-clock coverage on the nominees, their party platforms and the November election. Concurrently, the news coverage will result in a torrent of social media activity.

We will be using our platform to synthesize coverage and social activity, analyzing millions of data points across the full media spectrum to better understand the core topics, trends and sentiment associated with each nominee.

We will have several members of the Zignal Family “on the floor” at each Convention as well as our Zignal Command Center. Be sure to sign up for our daily reports of audience reaction to the proceedings in analytics and emojis.

As CEO Josh Ginsberg said, “If the dynamic primary process is any indicator of what to expect at both conventions, then the next few weeks won’t disappoint. At both conventions, Zignal Labs’ on-the-ground presence will cut through the noise to better understand how the nominees and their party platforms are resonating with voters.
