TAMPA, Fla. (

TheStreet

) -- While Democrats have been eager to scrub corporate evidence from their upcoming convention, Republicans have embraced the culture.

A simple peak around the Tampa Convention Center reveals a subtle smattering of corporate sponsors.

Google

(GOOG) - Get Report

has an entire media lounge next to the press filing center. The location offers coffee, colorful seating and various hubs that cast the search giant in a positive fashion. One television screen in the lounge offers up facts about how many jobs the company supports in the United States.

Google also blasts up a huge advertisement on the convention stage in between speeches by Republican officials -- the ad flashes its various brands like Google+, and YouTube.

Many other recognizable companies have joined Google as official sponsors of the convention.

The official guide lists

Microsoft

(MSFT) - Get Report

,

AT&T

(T) - Get Report

,

Cisco

(CSCO) - Get Report

,

Hewlett-Packard

(HPQ) - Get Report

, and

Adobe Systems

(ADBE) - Get Report

, among others.

The Tampa Bay host committee also notes various official providers, including

Xerox

(XRX) - Get Report

and

Coca-Cola

(KO) - Get Report

.

At a first glance, Coca-Cola may elude obvious recognition. But convention goers who must dispose of recyclable products will notice that every recycling bin is shaped in the form of a massive 20-ounce Coca-Cola bottle wrapped in a red label. A tiny Coca-Cola Company logo appears at the bottom of the bin.

Observers will discover Xerox's presence at the print shop -- a large room that holds numerous Xerox copying machines and stacks of printer paper.

AT&T is probably the first corporate sponsor that Republican National Convention attendees come across. Every lanyard worn at the convention is a red, white and blue rope with the classic telecommunications logo emblazoned on its sides.
