Municipal Special Events Summit 2019

The City of Raleigh is proud to host and celebrate hundreds of events each year, from major conventions and sporting events to community-based festival and races.  The City of Raleigh Office of Emergency Management and Special Events provides a single point of contact for event management and compliance, overseeing all aspects of special events that use City public right-of-way, such as streets, parks, downtown venues, and other public spaces.  We are excited for the Municipal Special Events Summit to come to Raleigh in 2019!

Take advantage of the opportunity to connect with your colleagues from across the country as you hone your skills with 250 special event professionals at the Municipal Special Events Summit January 30 – February 1, 2019 at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Summit attendees will be able to expand their horizons and develop professionally by attending a wide variety of educational sessions, networking opportunities, and social events while experiencing everything Raleigh has to offer.
