CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- There are going to be a lot of parties and events around Charlotte during the Democratic National Convention.

One of the main events is a Media Welcome Event on Saturday, September 1 at the NC Music Factory. Organizers expect 15,000 members of the media to attend.

Oh yeah, it's going to be so fantastic. We are so excited to be hosting the largest conglomerate of media, said Noah Lazes of the NC Music Factory. Fifteen thousand media at the Music Factory on Saturday to get this media party kicked off and we look forward to sharing a good time and getting this convention started.

All 14 venues at the NC Music Factory will be used for the event.

It's the first time anyone has actually ever done this, Lazes said.

It is a private event until 10 p.m. After that, the entire venue opens to the public.
