More than 3,000 expected to participate in Orlando event March 5-7
LISLE, Ill. – Registration is open for the 2024 Water Quality Association Convention & Exposition, to be held March 5-7 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. The convention website, wqa.org/convention, provides registration, housing, schedule and special experience information for the premier water quality industry event.
“Exhibitors have reserved 95% of our Exposition space already, but we have room to expand it this year and so are excited about that growth,” said WQA Events Director Angie Silberhorn, CMP. “Our convention theme, ‘Catalyst,’ describes how the Convention will spark attendees to grow personally and professionally, as well as to acquire skills and contacts they need to grow their businesses. If you are a water treatment professional, there’s something for you here.”
The Convention & Exposition, which is expected to attract more than 3,000 dealers, manufacturers and consultants from around the world, is the most comprehensive annual gathering of water treatment professionals in North America. Education sessions are scheduled for all three days of the event, with technical sessions geared to all levels of learners, from those brand-new to the industry to those interested in research or commercial/industrial applications. A full complement of business operations topics will inspire attendees with skills needed to run successful businesses.
The Expo will be open March 6 & 7, with more than 200 exhibitors offering the most advanced products and services in residential, commercial and industrial water treatment.
Things get rolling with Pre-Convention Programming on March 4 – WQA’s Business Boot Camp, the WQRF Scientific Symposium and the Commercial/Industrial RO Sizing workshop – which offer strategic and specialized learning in a relaxed atmosphere (additional fees apply).
Cost savings through advance pricing is offered for those who register by Dec. 5. The WQA hotel block offers guaranteed lowest rates at facilities within walking distance or on the official Convention shuttle route.
WQA members receive a discount on registration, Expo booth space and sponsorship opportunities, and new WQA members are eligible for one free convention registration during a business’ first year of membership. Membership information can be found at wqa.org/membership.
