Exhibiting at City Summit

Business Begins With NLC

Bring your products, services, and solutions to around 3,000 local leaders — mayors, council members, administrators, city managers, and department directors — who have the influence to impact business decisions in their communities. Last year, over 250 exhibit booths were showcased, totaling over 25,000 square feet in space!

Four days of workshops, training, educational tours and round table discussions on topics critical to municipalities draw local leaders from cities of all sizes across the U.S. to find solutions for their cities. Be part of their solution by presenting your company or organization’s expertise, products and services to decision makers.

Major topics covered at the conference include economic development, public safety, finance, infrastructure, sustainability, transportation, supporting youth and families and more.
