II. Conference Connections
Your Conference Exhibitors
It’s been a long time since most local government officials have had the opportunity to check out the latest products and services and connect face-to-face. Exhibitors are eager to network with you and provide their expertise at the 106th League Conference.
From heavy equipment to software vendors and from longstanding state agencies to the latest service businesses, nearly 300 exhibitors are already confirmed. The list is increasing with new exhibitors being added daily!
The exhibit hall adds an interactive, hands on dimension to the Conference learning opportunities, as they provide an outlet to interact with expertise, products, and services critical to successful local governing.
Plan time in your Conference schedule to visit the full-size exhibit hall with extra aisles and open spaces with your convenience and safety in mind. The event’s session structure has been adapted to allow plenty of time during the full three days to explore.
Along with changes to the in-person Conference, the League is creating an improved Conference experience that will include a fully searchable session schedule, exhibitors list and speakers directory, registration and housing information, Conference News, and many more features.
Do you have a partner in business who would benefit from exhibiting at the 106th Annual Conference? While the booth sales are 50% sold, space is still available and we are always seeking innovative vendors to exhibit.
Potential participants can get more information about exhibiting at the Conference at the event website, or by contacting Director of Conference Business Development Kristin Lawrence, email@example.com.
