The fourth International Emerging Technology Symposium, which takes place every other year, will be held this April 23-24 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va. If you haven’t attended in the past, now is your chance to meet and network with well-known experts in the water and energy efficiency industry. It is well worth the trip!
These experts will expose you to emerging products and practices and you will witness them exchange views on new trends in the industry. You will be able to hear ideas and approaches about emerging technologies coming to market; learn about innovative green plumbing and mechanical concepts; view presentations; and engage in timely discussions on how the water utility, manufacturing, engineering and trade industries have found solutions through emerging technologies in the water efficiency, plumbing and mechanical industries.
I am honored to be a part of this year’s events, moderating a Day 1 panel discussion on Emerging Issues and Solutions on Waste Water with an esteemed panel of speakers:
