Growing & Employing

Our Mountain State

The WV Energy Expo is a one-day business event tailored towards the growth and opportunity of the energy industry in West Virginia. The event provides information, resources, and networking needed for growing our state's energy industry, and the businesses that support it.

One of the biggest challenges we face in West Virginia is the demand for an increased workforce. This year, with the efforts of the WV Dept. of Commerce, the WV Energy Expo will be adding a focus on workforce by adding a hiring aspect to the event. sponsors and exhibitors are encouraged to bring their HR teams to take advantage of the attendees looking for available positions.

For our indoor booth exhibitors, each 10' X 10' booth space will be equipped with an 8' high back drapery/36" high side divider drapery (drapery is royal blue in color), an 8 foot table, black paper tablecloth (not floor length) and two chairs. Additional tables/chairs will be available at no cost — just alert the Expo team of your requirements at check-in, and we will deliver them to your booth. All indoor booths will have access to electricity.

For event rentals/etc — we recommend Morgantown Power Equipment. Their phone number is (304) 296-6155.

No set-up will be permitted on the day of the Expo (10/2), and refunds will not be given for exhibitors that fail to show-up.

Upon arrival, all exhibitors will need to check-in with our Expo team by coming to the main entrance of Mylan Park and going to the check-in table. Exhibitors will then receive their check-in packet, which will include:

  • (2) Exhibitor badges with lanyards per booth space. We will print the names of your booth staff on-site upon check-in.
  • A printed site map with exhibitor booth layouts.
  • Exhibitor reception tickets, (2) tickets are included per booth space, unless you have purchased extra tickets in advance or are a sponsor. Please contact the Expo team if you would like to purchase extra tickets available for $40 each.

Since the Expo is open to the public and free to attend, your company may bring as many representatives as you need, we just ask that each representative register at the door upon arrival.

Outdoor booth exhibitors may bring a tent as long as it fits in your allotted space, and tables and chairs will be available upon request at check-in. You may NOT drill/stake your tent into the asphalt — weights will need to be used if you wish to secure your outdoor tent. Any damage to the asphalt will be the responsibility of the exhibitor.

There will be several handcarts and a forklift (max weight 4600 lbs) available on-site for use during set-up (no charge for usage).

The Vendor Reception will take place on-site immediately following set-up.

There will be on-site security patrolling overnight.

Vendor Reception

Vendor Reception

One of the most highlighted and popular aspects of the WV Energy Expo is the Vendor Reception, held the night prior to the event. This event is closed to the general public and provides food, beverages and entertainment for our participants.
