For starters, #ELGL17 is an interactive event where using a mobile device is highly encouraged. That’s right, Tweet, Post, and Snap to your hearts content! You’ll be able to connect with fellow conference attendees before, during, and after the conference using a variety of social media platforms. Having a mobile device handy will only enhance your #ELGL17 experience.

The conference app put’s everything you need to know about #ELGL17 at your fingertips. Where to eat? Check. What session to attend? Check. Directions to social events? Check. If it has anything to do with #ELGL17, we’ve got the app for that.
The Conference App
We’ve created a conference application for your use on a mobile device (smartphone or tablet). Using this app, you can review the conference schedule, meet our sponsors, read updates from the event, find a map of the conference grounds, and upload an official #ELGL17 selfie or favorite photos from throughout the day.

You can expect to receive more info before #ELGL17, but until then spend some time reviewing the conference agenda and getting excited about the cool speakers, interesting topics, tours, and interactive sessions we have in store.

What can I expect when I arrive at #ELGL17?
We knew we didn’t want to inundate attendees with reams of paper, either before or at the conference. That’s why we’ve relied on email, social media, and ELGL.org to communicate about the conference so far. So when you arrive at the conference, you won’t be handed a packet of materials. What can we say, we’re all about sustainability!
The conference committee’s goal for #ELGL17 is to continue providing a conference experience that will allow you to learn; expand your local government network; and have a transformative experience. We look forward to sharing in the #ELGL17 experience with you!
