detailed conference information!

With more than four days of learning events and activities scheduled, the NWPPA E&O Conference and Trade Show provides a mix of education, networking, and trade show experiences that can help with the opportunities and challenges that you face. The conference and trade show provide:

  • Opportunities to meet your peers during events such as our engineering and linemen roundtables, educational sessions, and general sessions. Peer networking is the number-one reason for attendance for many attendees.
  • Educational sessions that will present the latest best practices and innovations in your line of work.
  • Meet with exhibitors in our trade show to go over your needs back on the job and see the latest technology, consulting services, and more in person.

The 2016 NWPPA E&O provides the best bang for your buck! Compare the E&O hotel rates, registration fee, and benefits (such as the number of meals that are provided as part of the fee) to other events of this size, and you will find that it is easy on your budget. A good price for a quality event makes for a good deal. We're looking forward to seeing you in Spokane!

No other organizations are holding room blocks for NWPPA for our events, nor has NWPPA authorized any other organization to contact attendees to assist with hotel reservations for our events. If you are contacted by an organization other than NWPPA about booking hotel reservations, please contact NWPPA at (360) 254-0109 and do not give your information out to them.
