Transcript Presidential candidate Eisenhower being interviewed in the Press Auditorium which had been improvised in the Exhibition Hall. had been booked in the hotel a year before it had been chosen for the conventions, and which was scheduled to open on the heels of the Democratic convention. As the week dragged on, and a candidate had not been picked, the possibility of a conflict became a major concern. The show manager for the Fair had checked in early to supervise setting up jeweler's booths—all of which had been contractedfor—in the Exhibition Hall, which was then being used by the press. When, by Friday evening, the Fair was less than 36 hours away and a Democratic nominee had still to be chosen, the Hotel decided to act. Press headquarters, which had taken months to install, were moved complete with wiring, equipment and other paraphernalia to the Oak Grill Room on the floor above and the Exhibition Hall converted overnight into a jeweler's show room. Such efficiency and tact characterized the dealing by The Conrad Hilton management and employees with many less severe crises. It earned the respect of all, especially of the hard working men and women whose job it was to bring the convention story to the American public. As a result, The Conrad Hilton received credit in countless newspaper stories, radio and television programs and became the world's most publicized hotel. In the five months prior to the actual opening of the Republican convention, Illinois Bell Telephone Company workmen installed approximately 2,500,000 feet of temporary wiring. These microwave "dishes" located on top of the hotel, carried television signals to and from the International Amphitheatre and also downtown video stations. Note sandbags on cables to hold them in position. The Conrad Hilton operating on a tight schedule that didn't plan on the Democratic National Convention lasting as long as it did, moved the press from the Exhibition Hall to the Oak Grill Room. Members of the press turning out feature material in their headquarters in the Exhibition Hall of The Conrad Hilton. 21
