We know that coronavirus is having a profound effect on everyone, both personally and professionally. During these challenging times it is vital that our sector continues to learn and engage. WEF will hold WEFTEC this year, whether in hybrid form with both in-person activities and virtual components or as a fully virtual event.

We are committed to providing opportunities to our members and water sector professionals that meet interests, ability to travel, and financial resources. To achieve this, we have expanded WEFTEC to include virtual education, an exhibitor showcase, and networking components through our new virtual event called WEFTEC Connect.

You can now choose the WEFTEC participation that works best for you – in-person or virtual.
