This year the WEFTEC Bookstore will host two authors to sign copies of their books. Visitors also can take advantage of expert demonstrations of Access Water, the Water Environment Federation’s technical content platform. On top of that, 16 new or updated water quality titles will be on display and available for purchase.
Each year WEFTEC attracts the leading experts from throughout the water sector on every topic imaginable. And that includes you. Others want to hear your insights and understand things from your perspective.
For the first time ever, we will broadcast live from WEFTEC. This programming will give everyone, everywhere the chance to sample some of the best of WEFTEC.
