Transforming Local Government Conference Registration & Nominations Open

The 2018 Transforming Local Government Conference (TLG) will be an exciting event for all local government professionals. TLG attracts participation from local governments that are deliberately seeking new and innovative ways to connect people, information and ideas that support their efforts to be the best communities in which to live, work, and prosper. The TLG conference is recognized for its dynamic content that encourages freethinking and fosters unprecedented ideas. The conference experience is designed to promote team building and a sense of camaraderie.

Join the Alliance for Innovation at the TLG Conference in Tacoma, Washington April 3 to 6, 2018 to dive deep into the innovative practices that are emerging from local government and ensuring we are developing future ready communities. Find additional information below about exhibitor registration, general early bird registration, and award nominations. You can also visit the TLG website for more information. 

Early Bird Discount for Exhibitors Prior to Dec. 31
By design, TLG is a high interaction conference and offers face-to-face interaction between exhibitors and attendees. Since TLG runs under 1000 attendees, exhibitors have the ability to meet directly with a greater number of qualified leads! In 2017 exhibitors have a choice of traditional or non-traditional exhibit spaces. Learn more here, and make sure to take advantage of the early bird discount by registering before Dec. 31! For information on how to register as an exhibitor, contact Karen Leone,
