Why Exhibit

 

WEFTEC’s unparalleled educational and training opportunities attract thousands of water and wastewater professionals each year.

Coinciding with the technical conference is WEFTEC’s expansive exhibition – the largest in the world – which draws buyers and representatives of leading water and wastewater companies from around the globe.

WEFTEC allows exhibitors to make the most of their marketing dollar while maximizing their organization's exposure by connecting with the industry's largest audience of purchasers and decision makers. In all, over 22,000 registrants and exhibitors come to WEFTEC to gain practical knowledge, share ideas, and conduct business.
