Public Power Lineworkers Rodeo Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsor and exhibit at the Public Power Lineworkers Rodeo to connect with 500+ electric superintendents, lineworkers, and safety personnel from utilities across the U.S.

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 96,000 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 sponsor the Public Power Lineworkers Rodeo?

The Public Power Lineworkers Rodeo is the place for journeyman and apprentice lineworkers to compete for professional recognition and to learn about the latest safety products and services.

As a sponsor, you’ll:

  • Interact with 500+ electric superintendents, lineworkers, and safety personnel.
  • Create brand awareness with more public power utilities throughout the United States.
  • Meet with decision-makers and influencers.
  • Network with customers and prospects who need your products and services.
  • Get a leg up on your competition.
