APWA-MN Fall Conference Exhibit Opportunity

September 12, 2016

The 2016 American Public Works Association – Minnesota Chapter invites you to exhibit at this year’s Fall Conference, held November 17-18, 2016. For 2016, the exhibitor and sponsor booths will be in Carriage Hall for the Thursday evening reception and Friday for breaks and lunch. This will allow for an evening event on November 17 at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. This event will start with a reception from 4:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. and a Carnival from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. This year’s onsite event has a revised layout to encourage better circulation and interaction between our members, sponsors and exhibitors. The details are listed below. Please note that exhibit space is limited, and will be available on a first come, first served basis.

The conference program adjourns at 4:15 p.m., and the reception is held until about 6 p.m. with the Carnival from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you are interested in holding a “minute to win it” type event at your booth during the reception, please indicate this when you complete your online registration.
