The American Public Works Association’s (APWA) 2018 North American Snow Conference is coming to Indiana! This conference that attracts nearly 2000 participants will be hosted in Indianapolis by the Indiana Chapter May 6th- 9th, 2018. This is a unique opportunity for agencies in your state to enjoy the benefits of a national winter operations conference close to home. For the first time ever APWA is extending discount rates for the exhibition floor not only to Indiana agencies but also to agencies in our neighboring states.
With the reality that all our agencies have lean travel and training budgets, the Indiana host committee wanted to provide you some information that you can use to ensure your staff at all levels can attend this exciting event in May 2018. We have spent the last several months working with the staff at APWA’s national offices and we are pleased to announce a unique program that will allow your staff to attend the conference at a fraction of the normal cost. The Agency Sponsorship Programallows your organization to send multiple staff members to the Show4Snow and have a full day access to the exhibit floor displays, vendors and suppliers without having to register for the full conference.
Although these exhibit passes do not include access to education sessions, the Snow Conference also features Exhibitor Showcase Presentations on the exhibit floor and your staff is welcome to attend these presentations.
The Snow Conference provides a great opportunity for your front line personnel, supervisors and managers to meet directly with vendors, see and evaluate new products, and learn tricks of the trade from each other. This conference will strengthen their understanding and overall ability to contribute to your snow and ice control program. In these days of travel restrictions and limited training budgets, it can be difficult to reward your employees and keep them motivated. An agency sponsorship is a great way to reward your hard working employees by letting them attend the Snow Conference Exhibit Floor for a day! The Agency Sponsorship Programallows you to cut the one day access rate by as much as 67%! The deadline to order passes is April 6, 2018.
Levels of Agency Sponsorship
5 passes for $100
15 passes for $250
35 passes for $500
75 passes for $1,000
We hope that you will join with other public agencies in purchasing exhibit floor passes. Enclosed is a form where you can indicate your level of interest and support.
On behalf of the Indiana Chapter and the 2018 North American Snow Conference Host Committee, we thank you in advance for your agency’s support. Thanks for your consideration and we hope to see you in Indianapolis next May for the North American Snow Conference.
