International Visitors

The Utility Expo welcomes international visitors from around the world. View information on travel and visa requirements, as well as cultural considerations, to help you plan your visit with ease. 

Global Audience

The Utility Expo is an international event, thanks to a global audience of public works and utility industry leaders from over 60 countries. We encourage visitors from overseas and anyone interested in global business connections to take advantage of The Utility Expo's international services:

  • Pre-Show Multilingual Assistance
  • U.S. Visa Assistance and Invitation Letter Program
  • International Delegation Program
  • Education and Training Opportunities

Visa Information

U.S. visa applications are still subject to a greater degree of scrutiny than in the past. Therefore, we encourage all international exhibitors and attendees to act early and contact the U.S. Embassy nearest them. The visa application process should be initiated well before the planned travel date and no later than three months before the show.

For more information on obtaining a visa, please visit the U.S. Department of State website.


Visa letters of invitation will be available once registration for our 2025 show opens. They will be emailed free of charge after your paid registration has been accepted. However, if you require a physical copy mailed to your address, that will cost an additional $25.
