What is the National Conference?

It’s public power’s largest meeting and THE place for industry suppliers to gain exposure with 1,200+ community-owned utility CEOs, senior executives, and policymakers.

Why should my company support this event?

There’s no better place to interact with executives who determine investments in customer service, cyber and physical security, disaster preparedness, energy efficiency, distributed energy resources, renewable energy, finance, governance/management, legislative/regulatory issues, power supply, reliability/infrastructure, and more.

How can we participate in the Industry Innovations Expo?

The only way to secure expo space is through sponsorship. To get your booth:

  1. Select your sponsorship package.
  2. Purchase your sponsorship package
  3. View the expo floorplan and put your desired booth on hold for APPA approval.
  4. View the vendor services kit for all the information you need on shipping, ordering services, and more
  5. Use these whitelisting instructions to ensure that you receive important sponsor & expo emails

Save money on your sponsorship! Become a corporate associate member.

Corporate associate membership distinguishes your company as a lead supporter of public power and provides tangible benefits that get your name in front of the nation’s 2,000 community-owned electric utilities. We offer two levels – standard and Elite – to fit your needs and budget. Both options provide your employees with significant benefits, but with an Elite membership you are given extensive branding and networking opportunities.
