Aquatech USA 2010 focuses on technology, post-recession planning

Lisle, Ill. — Changes and advances in the industry brought about by the recession and legislative challenges will be highlighted at WQA Aquatech USA 2010, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Fla., March 9-12.

The show has been retooled to meet the many needs of tomorrow’s market, especially the opportunities that may await in a post-recession environment, according to Peter J. Censky, executive director of WQA. With states looking more at bans and environmental legislation, even more change is coming, he emphasized.

“There will be new technologies coming in the next few months, some of them almost revolutionary,” Censky said. “This will be a pivotal year to learn about coming challenges and opportunities.”

Seven workshops will be part of the full conference package. These sessions will allow participants to work through various problems, from sizing calculations with fixture counts to business valuation.

Those attending will also be taking part in hands-on presentations, including pipe joining and valve teardown. They will also learn the latest research on water treatment technologies and contaminant detection.

There will be a strong emphasis this year on practical tips and advice. Tim Miles will be the opening speaker at the general session. Miles received positive reviews at previous WQA Aquatech USA shows, where he talked about making ads work and strategic planning.

Attendees interested in industry advances and new products can take advantage of the New Product Showcase. The 2010 show will introduce a revamped Industrial Water: Speed Networking session.
