APWA North American Snow Conference

The premier event for snow and ice management

Well, it's February and we're deep in the middle of winter again. And unless you live in Los Angeles, Miami, or a similar Sunbelt location, that means snow...and ice...and sleet. And in the Snowbelt, the snowfighters-whose decisions affect everyone who drives or rides-all have opinions on how to fight the snow and ice.

Care to share yours?

Then plan on attending APWA's 41st Annual North American Snow Conference, to be held April 8-11 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Sponsored by the American Public Works Association and hosted by APWA's Indiana Chapter and the City of Indianapolis, the conference will bring together more than 1,000 participants to learn about the latest innovations, successful practices, and strategies in winter operations and snowfighting techniques.

In addition to the education program offerings, the exhibit floor at the North American Snow Conference will feature more than 100 companies demonstrating the very latest products, services, and technologies available in snow fighting and winter road maintenance. See what's new, participate in hands-on demonstrations, and network with manufacturers, distributors, public works professionals and other snowfighters. The exhibit floor offers a truly unique learning experience.

APWA's Indiana Chapter is proud to be hosting this year's conference in Indianapolis, a great city with lots to offer convention attendees. Shopping and dining are convenient at Indianapolis' many downtown shops, restaurants and pubs-all within walking distance of the official Snow Conference hotels. The Circle Centre mall features hundreds of unique shops and department stores as well as restaurants and nightspots. And at the historic City Market, you can browse through the specialty shops or experience the tastes and aromas of a variety of international foods. Plus there is a variety of museums and historical landmarks, including the race museum and hall of fame at the world-famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
