The Water Quality Association reminds those planning to attend the 2020 WQA Convention & Exposition, April 1-3 in Orlando, Fla., that savings are available for registering early. Advance pricing is available through February 5 for the convention and the March 31 WQA Business Boot Camp, both at the Orange County Convention Center.
WQA members can save $50 per person on the convention registration fee (or $65 off show week registration) by taking advantage of early pricing, and another $50 per person on registration ($75 off show week price) for Boot Camp. And more savings are available on housing: Several hotels with walkways or shuttles to the convention center offer rooms at special WQA block rates to those reserving through March 9.
More than 3,000 dealers, manufacturers and consultants attend the annual convention, which this year offers “Vision 20/20” as its theme. Expanded hours for this year’s trade show, open April 2 and 3, offer greater opportunities to see the latest products and services in drinking water treatment.
Education sessions are scheduled for all three days of the event, with many providing Continuing Professional Development credit toward recertification. Two technical workshops – one on Commercial/Industrial RO Sizing and one an introduction to water contaminants and drinking water regulations – are set for April 3 for additional fees. Professional certification exams will be held during the convention at a discounted price.
The Convention’s Opening General Session will feature keynote speaker Simon T. Bailey, plus industry awards and the election of WQA officers. A New Attendee Breakfast, Welcome Reception and committee and section meetings provide networking opportunities.
The convention website has all the details, including a full schedule and sponsorship opportunities.
