Apply to share your insight, expertise and solutions with 2012 Congress of Cities attendees as a Solution Theater presenter. The Solution Theater offers exhibitors an exclusive opportunity to present 45-minute sessions on an area of expertise, a best practice or an innovation. Scheduled on the hour on Thursday, November 29, between 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., each session is held in a workshop room in the conference convention center with seating for up to 75 participants. Two Solution Theaters will run concurrently. Delegates are able to participate in the Solution Theaters as part of the conference registration fee - no additional fee will be charged.
NEW THIS YEAR! Each year the demand for the Solution Theaters has grown. For the first time, NLC is accepting applications and selecting sessions from the pool of suggested topics/presentations. Applications for one of the ten available theater sessions will be accepted until Friday, September 14, 2012. Announcement of the selected sessions will be made by Friday, September 21, 2012.
NLC's goal is to provide a wide breadth of Solution Theaters covering a variety of solutions and issues. Solution Theaters should provide educational value to the delegates in attendance. Only one workshop submission per company is permitted.
Alignment with the topical areas of the conference is not required. Timeliness of the issue or solution, applicability to municipalities, and strength of the session description are important. Incomplete and late applications will not be considered.
