Key to a Dynamic Water Sector

WEF believes that innovation is the lifeblood of a dynamic water sector, and therefore has made innovation a crucial part of its Strategic Direction. This direction has manifested itself through the Innovation Showcase at WEFTEC, which continues to grow exponentially. The showcase highlights the important areas of innovation through a series of educational sessions, networking events, and exhibits.

Innovation topics that WEF is focused on include:

  • New products
  • Technology evaluation
  • Utilities and early adopters of new technologies
  • Financing and alternative project delivery
  • Water clusters and other innovation incubators
  • Regulations and their key relation to new technology
  • Operations – where creative workforces innovate, test, and partner to make everything happen
