AMP Technical Services Conference

The AMP Disaster Workshop and Technical Services Conference provides an opportunity to increase technical understanding and capabilities, learn about new products, strengthen relationships with other members as well as AMP staff, and exchange ideas with other utilities facing similar challenges. This annual event spans two days at the Quest Conference Center in Columbus.

The conference is designed for those who operate distribution systems including electric utility managers, superintendents and technical staff. Prior to the Technical Services Conference, AMP will conduct a (members only) mock disaster drill facilitated by the American Public Power Association. The exercise is designed to test a community’s storm readiness should a wide-scale event impact multiple AMP member utilities.

During the conference, industry experts and AMP staff give presentations on a variety of relevant topics such as safety, electric vehicle charging stations and the use of drones. The conference also features a Vendor Expo of services and interactive displays of products related to the utility industry.
