MPUA conference = great company branding opportunity

Your company can stand out in the crowd of utility service and product suppliers. With your sponsorship of MPUA’s annual conference, your company will be highlighted on many occasions. Plus, Gold and Silver sponsors get free registration, golf, an exhibit booth, and other perks. Exhibitor booths and event sponsorship are also available.  Your conference sponsorship brings brand awareness and is a unique opportunity to chat with municipal utility employees. It will more than pay for itself with the exposure you will receive before and at the conference. In addition to branding at the conference, your company will benefit from your logo being part of pre-conference outreach and on our website. Please send your sponsorship or exhibit inquiries for the fall 2020 MPUA conference to or call us at 573-445-3279.

Municipal Utilities Moving Forward (download presentation)
Discover new trends, technologies, and customer expectations for the electric industry that can also be applied to any utility. Patricia Taylor with the American Public Power Association will review how to create a road map for the future by taking a holistic approach. Integrating new technologies that align with customer expectations will give your utilities the building blocks for a new utility era.

Voices of Experience: Leveraging AMI Networks & Data (download presentation)
The original business cases for implementing an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) typically focused on the cost savings from avoided truck rolls and the end of manual meter reading. Now personnel throughout all the utilities are digging into the data, pairing it with other data, gaining insights, and making data-driven decisions. This granular data can make your operations more efficient and enable a fundamental shift in customer interactions. The speaker from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will discuss this recently published report funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Presenter: Sonja Berdahl, Senior Project Manager, Integrated Applications Center of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)

Attorney, Walter Wright, will provide an overview of both cultivation and manufacturing facilities and what utility providers can expect from these commercial customers.
