Cincinnati lands another convention

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Another major convention is coming to downtown Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati USA Convention and Visitors Bureau announced Wednesday that the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) will bring its annual convention to the Queen City in 2014.

After a bid process narrowed the field to two cities, Cincinnati was chosen over Seattle by a count of 947 votes to 490.

The event is expected to have over 2,500 attendees, using nearly 9,000 hotel rooms a night, and deliver an economic impact of at least $2.6 million.
