What is CSG?

The Council of State Governments is our nation’s only organization serving all three branches of state government. CSG is a region-based forum that fosters the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy. This offers unparalleled regional, national and international opportunities to network, develop leaders, collaborate and create problem-solving partnerships.

 

Why Exhibit at the CSG National Conference?

No other meeting in the country will provide you with more interpersonal, face-to-face interaction with key state government leaders. The unique size of the meeting allows exhibitors to have direct and quality access to state legislators, state executive branch officials and state supreme court justices.

 

Who Exhibits at the CSG National Conference?

Any company or organization interested in getting their message to state government leaders should exhibit at the CSG National Conference. Past exhibitors include health and technology corporations, Fortune 500 companies, federal agencies, convention and visitors bureaus, associations and political interest groups.
