Can you believe it? We are less than three months away from the largest yearly gathering of municipal officials in New Hampshire, and we hope you will join us.
The New Hampshire Municipal Association (NHMA) is pleased to invite you to be part of our 82nd Annual Conference and Exhibition to be held this Wednesday, November 15, and Thursday, November 16, 2023, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Manchester Hotel in Manchester. This NHMA signature, two-day event draws more than 300 city and town officials and showcases nearly 90 exhibitors and sponsors. The year’s conference, themed Zap the Gap: How to Make Peace & Work Effectively in a Multigenerational World, continues a rich tradition of leadership, education and networking designed to enhance overall member governance.
To make this year’s event better than ever, we’ve made some exciting changes. For example, the Russ Marcoux Municipal Advocate of the Year awards banquet, traditionally held as a Thursday lunch event, has been moved to Wednesday night. Together with the Municipal Management Association of New Hampshire, NHMA will be hosting the Russ Marcoux Municipal Advocate of the Year award banquet on Wednesday evening, and this includes a social hour, plated dinner, and magical entertainment. A $5,000 sponsorship (available to multiple sponsors) offers you the opportunity to make brief opening remarks and you will receive a complimentary table for eight, among other promotional benefits. We hope you will consider supporting and joining us at this member networking event this year. Even if you chose not to sponsor, please mark your calendars to join us Wednesday night for award recognitions, big laughs, great fun and lively entertainment. Only $30 per ticket. (Please see the special one page insert in the attached Exhibitor & Sponsor Kit for details of this sponsorship opportunity.)

In a further effort to drive member traffic to the Exhibit Hall this year, all lunches and session breaks will be held in the Exhibit Hall. We also plan to introduce a new “Best of Show” booth contest (to be voted by attendees) and a new “Tic-Tac-Toe” contest. We hope introducing these new changes will boost member traffic and help engage members long enough that they stick around to learn what you offer.
The participation of companies and organizations like yours adds to the value that conference attendees’ experience. We invite you to be part of this great event as a sponsor and/or an exhibitor. The above Exhibitor & Sponsor Kit outlines the details of these excellent opportunities.
We thank you for your interest in our annual conference and we look forward to your participation with us in November.
