Through its sponsorships, ICMA offers a wealth of product-branding opportunities. By investing in one or more opportunity, sponsors will increase their visibility and attract more visitors to their booths, generating more leads and ultimately more sales.

Stand apart from other exhibitors, increase your visibility and exposure among key local government decision makers, and give your company a competitive advantage in the local government marketplace.
