PWX 2021 St. Louis

August 29 - September 1, 2021  

The Missouri Chapter last hosted the APWA Congress and Exposition (now PWX) in 1990 in St. Louis.  Originally, the PWX 2021 was scheduled to be hosted in Charlotte, North Carolina.  After some construction delays and an anticipated delayed opening, APWA National contacted the Missouri Chapter to “step up” because of our chapter’s strength and dependability.  This is due to our outstanding members and amazing agencies.

The Missouri Chapter accepted the challenge and agreed to “step up” and host in 2021. The decision by APWA National to hold the conference in St. Louis is a testament to our Chapter and includes just a few of the following key reasons:

  • Our Chapter’s longevity and strength - now over 60 years old and 625+ members strong, the Missouri Chapter is a dynamic organization with a remarkable heritage which includes winning the prestigious Presidential Award for Chapter Excellence (PACE) award 12 years running, having one Young Leaders of the Year and 15 Top 10 Public Works Leaders of the Year awards.     
  • Location – Saint Louis, Missouri.  A lot has changed since the last APWA National Conference in St. Louis.  The St. Louis Arch grounds have been refurbished and new improvements to Keiner Plaza, the opening of Ballpark Village that has brought energy to the downtown area, and a new aquarium set to open.  Timeless classics such as Forest Park, the Zoo, and the Botanical Gardens add to the list of exciting attractions.
  • The support from our dedicated member agencies – the strong support we get time and again from agencies was critical in our selection.

PWX provides a first-class multimodal learning experience designed for professionals at all levels and across the entire spectrum of public works. Come prepared to see, hear, touch, and discuss everything public works in a variety of traditional and interactive sessions, seminars, workshops, and networking opportunities. Attendees can spend time on North America's largest exhibit floor for public works equipment and services - we've carved out generous portions of non-compete time so you don't miss any sessions. Kick tires, talk about technology,or get the scoop on new products.  You can even step in front of the camera and tell your own public works story.

To take advantage of everything PWX has to offer with more than 6,000 public works colleagues from North America and beyond, 

See You in the Lou' in 2021
