WEFTEC® always offers an extensive amount of educational activities to participants. This year, the program is especially impressive after receiving a near record-breaking 1254 abstracts.

As the 85th annual Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) Technical Exhibition and Conference, WEFTEC 2012 will include more than 140 technical sessions, 24 workshops, and more than 1000 presentations and posters.

Those participating in WEFTEC’s educational opportunities have the ability to earn 1.2 Continuing Education Units and 16.5 Professional Development Hours.

At press time, 845 exhibitors have already reserved nearly 26,290 m2 (283,000 ft2) of floor space. This year, the exhibition also features five technical session rooms, which will hold more than 24 technical sessions that are open to all attendees. It also features the Stormwater Pavilion, an area dedicated to stormwater treatment products and services; the Innovation Pavilion, an area dedicated to innovative water treatment technologies; and the Laboratory Issues, Trenchless Technologies, and Thickening and Dewatering mobile sessions, which will visit various vendors so participants can learn about related technologies and technical details.

Register online to attend WEFTEC Sept. 29 to Oct. 3 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. Through the updated WEFTEC Utility Partnership Program, a utility can customize a single comprehensive membership package for all of its employees.
