Congress is APWA's largest event and annual meeting - the only event that covers every aspect of public works. APWA's International Public Works Congress & Exposition brings together more than 6,000 public works professionals from all over the world and features exciting keynote speakers, more than 150 education sessions, and an exhibit floor with more than 400 companies showcasing the newest and best equipment and services available in the public works industry.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
