Public Works Expo History

PWX

From the first annual meeting of American Society of Municipal Improvements (the first direct predecessor of APWA) in Buffalo, New York in 1894 to the equipment shows and technical programs at the annual meetings of the 1960's, through many years as the International Public Works Congress & Exposition, and on to the present day Public Works Expo (PWX), this APWA event has provided opportunities for face-to-face learning and networking covering the wide variety of public works-related topics.
