City of Tampa Chosen to Host National League of Cities (NLC) 2020 Annual Conference
The City of Tampa was chosen host the National League of Cities Annual Conference in 2020 during last week’s annual conference in Pittsburgh, PA.
During the conference, Tampa can expect around 3,000 local elected officials and city staff to convene in Tampa for several days of educational seminars, organizational policymaking and networking. NLC also brings in prominent speakers, and members will experience Tampa through mobile workshops around the city, in which they will learn about best practices and innovative solutions to bring back to their own communities.
“We are excited to announce that the National League of Cities will head to Tampa for City Summit 2020,” said National League of Cities (NLC) CEO and Executive Director Clarence E. Anthony. “Thousands of local elected officials and city staff will convene in Tampa for several days of networking and educational opportunities. I know our attendees will love the opportunity to experience and learn from a host city that is among America’s fastest growing and most economically vibrant cities.”
“Thank you to the National League of Cities for choosing the City of Tampa as the host for your 2020 annual conference,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn. “Hosting the NLC Annual Conference will be yet another way to showcase the City of Tampa to elected officials and private sector partners from around the country. Not only is Tampa on the verge of a transformation but is an active incubator of new public and municipal policy that we will be honored to share with elected officials from cities large and small across America."
Visit Tampa Bay’s President and CEO Santiago Corrada added, "Visit Tampa Bay is proud to host the NLC 2020 City Summit. The next four years promise to be transformative for Tampa Bay as a place to live, work, play -- and visit. We understand the intimate connection a city's attractiveness to visitors and its economic success. We look forward to showcasing our community for municipal leaders from across the country."
