2017 National League of Cities (NLC) City Summit

The Queen City is excited to roll out the royal treatment for the 2017 National League of Cities City Summit, which will take place at the Charlotte Convention Center in heart of uptown Charlotte Nov. 15-18. 

​Ideally positioned as the crown jewel of the Southeast, Charlotte is known for her diversity, distinct neighborhoods and high quality of life.  The Charlotte region continues to be one of the fastest growing in the nation. Her charm – as a hub for innovative ideas and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere will drive strong conference attendance.  NLC City Summit attendees represent small towns and big cities from 50 states, plus Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and Canada.


Hidden gems await the arrival of this year’s attendees. Rich in culture and history, our city offers many surprises, no matter your interests – sports, art, dining, music, or something else altogether – there’s always something new to discover about the Queen.  She shines with nightlife, culture, parks, retail, entertainment and best of all, incredible people. Come experience the eclectic mix of modern and traditional, urban and natural – that can only be found here!
