Show off your data wares! Support the dialogue about innovation in public data


Join the conversation about innovative data products at the 2016 APDU Annual Conference in September.

Join as a sponsor or exhibitor.  We have a great group of sponsors and exhibitors already, but we would like you to join us.  Show off your new data product, your new web interface, or your new approach to mashing up survey, administrative, and big data.

APDU is where the leaders of federal statistical agencies meet data users and brainstorm the future of public data.  If you are an innovator and want to continue being one, you need to be at the conference.  Conference sponsors and exhibitors connect directly with federal statistical agency executives, data-driven policymakers and researchers from universities, think tanks, consulting businesses, and more.

Choose to sponsor or exhibit and get your organization and/or your produced featured prominently in displays at the Conference, displays on conference promotions, free conference registration, APDU membership, and speaking engagements at the conference and companion webinars.
