Business & Financial Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsor the Business & Financial Conference to connect with 450+ public power leaders in

accounting, finance, HR, IT, rates & pricing, and risk management & insurance.

What is the American Public Power Association (APPA)?

APPA is the voice of not-for-profit, community-owned utilities that power 2,000 towns and cities nationwide. We represent public power before the federal government to protect the interests of the more than 49 million customers that public power utilities serve, and the 93,000 people they employ. Our association advocates and advises on electricity policy, technology, trends, training, and operations. Our members strengthen their communities by providing superior service, engaging citizens, and instilling pride in community-owned power.

Why should my company sponsor this event?

The Business & Financial Conference is the premier meeting for public power managers and senior executives in utility accounting and finance, human resources, information technology, rates and, and risk management and insurance. As a sponsor, you’ll have access to and visibility with key public power decision-makers and decision-influencers. You’ll enjoy many valuable branding and networking opportunities and have many opportunities to spread the word about your products and services.

Is there an expo I can participate in?

The only way to secure a spot in the Sponsor Showcase is through sponsorship.

You will enjoy dedicated time with public power leaders as noted below, but you’re welcome to schedule individual appointments or engage drop-in visitors outside of these hours. Additionally, you can attend conference sessions and events, so you can learn about the industry and network with attendees during non-showcase hours.
