Wilmington, NC: On May 25-27 travel industry partners in Wilmington and its island beaches will welcome the N.C. Local Government Information Systems Association [NCLGISA] when its annual Spring Symposium returns to Wilmington after a two-year gap due to the pandemic.

Attendees will stay at a variety of hotels including Hampton Inn Downtown Wilmington, Courtyard by Marriott Wilmington Downtown/Historic District, Aloft Wilmington at Coastline Center, Water Street Retreats and the Best Western Plus Coastline Inn.  “The Wilmington conference is our best attended event, and we always look forward to learning and growing in such a friendly and accommodating environment,” states NCLGISA President, Glenn Hasteadt.
