WEFTEC Connect sets a new standard of excellence for the WEFTEC experience, creating an online space where water professionals can come together in a safe and flexible environment, eliminating the need for permission and funding to travel.

WEFTEC Connect is not a standard webinar or virtual meeting – with a mixture of real-time, interactive learning events, more than 400 On-Demand technical presentations, multiple ways to engage and network with the water community, live product demos, solution sessions, exhibitor showcase, and more. WEFTEC Connect takes the best of our in-person event, reshapes it for the virtual world, and delivers it all directly to you.

For five days, from 5 October to 9 October, WEFTEC Connect will feature live content, education, networking, and more than 280 companies in the exhibitor showcase. Registrants will also have access to on-demand content for a full year following the event.

WEFTEC Connect Allows You to:

  • Participate in live, interactive learning with Q&A.
  • Earn continuing education credits.
  • Access on-demand technical content for a full year.
  • Talk directly with water sector product and service suppliers.
  • Use AI-powered matchmaking to pair you with attendees and exhibitors for instant chats or one-on-one video meetings.
  • Watch video product launches and equipment demonstrations and download resources.
  • Connect with your community through text chat channels or video-enabled roundtables.
  • Participate in social events such as the Monday Movie, Trivia Night, WEF Awards and Presidential Ceremony and Celebration, Wrap Party, and more! 


Around the Water World in 24 Hours

On Sunday, Oct. 4, at noon Eastern (16:00 UTC) we will spend 24 hours traveling around the world to hear from many of these water professionals and organizations about the work they are doing and to get everyone excited for the opening of WEFTEC Connect. We invite you to visit our YouTube page to take part in the journey.

We will move around the world, with new videos every 30 minutes and stops in North America, Latin America, Oceania, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa. (Follow us on FacebookTwitter, LinkedIn and Instagram for schedule details). We’ll also hear from our friends in New Orleans, where we were supposed to see you all this year, and from friends in Chicago, where we will hold WEFTEC in 2021 and can’t wait to see all of you in-person.

We hope you enjoy the virtual journey and all that WEFTEC Connect has to offer that week. We are excited for how the 24 Hours of Water will highlight the joint commitment of water professionals around the world to clean water and a sustainable future.

Tune in to 24 Hours of Water and help us power up for WEFTEC Connect!
