Housing Alert

Please note that there is only one official housing vendor for the 2014 APWA Congress & Expo. Room reservation requests will be accepted via the APWA Housing Website and the APWA Hotel Registration Form only. If you are contacted by any outside vendors regarding hotel reservations via any other means, please be aware that they are NOT an APWA authorized vendor. As of this moment, room reservation requests are not yet being accepted, but the form and website will be going live and appear online in March.

On behalf of Show Management, we wanted to bring these important matters to your attention to ensure that we are providing you with the most reliable resources for the upcoming show.

Should you be contacted by any of these outside housing or publication companies directly, please pass that information to Show Management so we can take the appropriate course of action to police this situation going forward. If you have any questions regarding which housing vendors have been approved by APWA, please e-mail or call (800) 687-7469 x219.

Show Program Alert


You may have recently received correspondence from Fair Guide that referenced the APWA Congress and Expo. The company that sent this letter requested that you update your contact information in order to “keep the Fair Guide up-to-date” and will invoice you for their services at a later date. These Fair Guides are NOT an APWA publication or website. APWA is in no way involved with or in business with Fair Guide,, Construct Data, or AUMA.

Furthermore, APWA did not supply these companies with your contact information and has no affiliation with them. Whether you decide to list your company in any Fair Guide is solely your decision. It does not affect your relationship with APWA in any way. APWA maintains their own records of exhibitors and produces its own Show Program and Exhibitors Guide for its trade shows. We regret any inconvenience caused by this solicitation, as well as the manner in which you were solicited. APWA had no knowledge of the solicitation of its exhibitors by these unrelated entities.
