The City Showcase is NLC’s premier program celebrating city achievements. Successful, creative programs from cities and towns across the country will be selected to participate in this unique set of recognition, networking, and knowledge sharing opportunities.
NLC's annual conference, the Congress of Cities and Exposition, will be one venue for showcasing the programs selected to participate. 2013 City Showcase activities will take place during NLC's Congress of Cities and Exposition in Seattle, Washington, November 13 - 16, 2013. In addition, NLC provides a variety of other opportunities for these programs to be highlighted and engage in valuable networking experiences.
Leading up to the conference, programs selected to participate will be recognized and celebrated for being selected to participate in the City Showcase. Their participation will be announced through various NLC news outlets, including news alerts, press releases, and blog posts. Participating cities will also be recognized in publications of the 2013 Congress of Cities and Exposition and at a conference-wide event.
Representatives responsible for the development and operation of the selected programs will receive complimentary registration to the 2013 Congress of Cities and Exposition, where they will engage in conversations with conference attendees and colleagues to discuss their implementation strategies, successes, and lessons learned and display their information in the exhibit hall.
Representatives from these programs will be called upon to demonstrate their knowledge and expertise in a variety of educational events throughout the Congress of Cities and Exposition and in future work, as NLC strives to highlight and learn from innovative practices that help city leaders build better communities.
