2024 APGA Marketing & Policy Conference: May 5-7

The Marketing & Policy Conference will now be held in-person every two years, and please make plans to join us for the 2024 Marketing & Policy Conference on May 5-7 in Naples, FL! This event gives attendees insight on the benefits of the end-use of natural gas in their communities as well as presentations on the policy and politics affecting the natural gas end-use market.

Here are some great reasons to attend this one-of-a-kind event for the publicly- and community-owned natural gas industry:

  • Comprehensive Communication Strategies. The APGA Marketing & Policy Conference gives attendees a comprehensive experience on how to best communicate the use of natural gas to customers and policymakers alike.
  • Hot Topics. Do not miss timely sessions from industry experts and discussions with your utility peers on topics such as working with stakeholders, marketing trend best practices, and case study presentations from the winners of APGA's Marketing & Sales Awards.
  • Advocacy. Learn how to effectively advocate for your system at the state and local levels.

This conference will run concurrently with the Gas Supply Conference, which will focus on current market changes and challenges of natural gas supply.
