LISLE, Ill. – The 2026 Water Quality Association Convention & Exposition will be held in Miami Beach, Fla., the association has announced. The 53rd annual convention will bring more than 3,000 water treatment dealers, manufacturers and consultants from around the world to the Miami Beach Convention Center April 28-30, 2026.

“The state-of-the-art Convention Center is exceptional, and it is a wonderful venue for our event,” said WQA Events Director Angie Silberhorn, CMP. “Miami Beach provides convenient travel, particularly for our international attendees, with two international airports within miles.”

A variety of hotels will be available in WQA’s Convention block for all budgets and preferences, including some right on the 35-mile stretch of beach for which the area is famous. The area’s year-round average temperature is in the mid-70s. 

Hundreds of eclectic dining, shopping and entertainment options, plus the famous Ocean Drive, are within a mile of the convention center.

With the 2025 Convention scheduled for Long Beach, Calif., WQA will be able to continue alternating East Coast and West Coast convention locations for maximum benefit for North American members. 

WQA’s annual Convention & Exposition is the most comprehensive annual gathering of water treatment professionals in North America. Education sessions are offered on all three days, and the two-day exposition displays the latest products and services in residential, commercial and industrial water treatment.
