A Republican National Committee group on April 29 will visit Cincinnati as part of the party's consideration of the city for the 2016 GOP national convention.

"The purpose of the technical visits is for a small team of RNC staff and advisors to gather additional information about each city and their bid prior to making a determination on which cities will receive official site visits from the full RNC delegation," the party said Tuesday. 

Cincinnati is one of six cities bidding for the quadrennial convention where the party will nominate its candidate president and its candidate for vice president.

The other cities are Denver, Las Vegas, Dallas, Kansas City, Mo., and Cleveland. Those cities will have also technical site visits starting Wednesday.

Here's a timeline of the selection process:

April 16– Denver

April 17 – Las Vegas

May 6-10 – GOP site selection committee meets at the RNC spring meeting in Memphis, Tenn. to review reports from tech visits.
