WEFTEC, the Water Environment Federation’s annual technical exhibition and conference, offers water quality professionals water quality education and training as well as access to the reportedly the world's largest annual water quality exhibition. Water and wastewater professionals attend WEFTEC to learn, network, find out about new products and services, and earn continuing education credit and PDH hours. Technical sessions and workshops address topics include collection systems; resource recovery; plant operations, treatment and management; regulations and research; and water reuse and recycling. WEFTEC 2014 will take place from September 27-October 1 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
Opening general session speaker Luke Williams will kick off the meeting with his keynote address on “Embracing Change in a Disruptive Age.” Scheduled for Monday, September 29, the presentation will look at disruptive innovation, entrepreneurship and cultural change, and how attendees can put those concepts to work in their environment. The technical program includes presentations by more than 900 speakers. The program is put together by more than 230 topical experts in the program committee. Sessions are made up of presentations by individuals or panels, and all sessions have opportunities for questions and discussions. For 2014, WEF has updated the WEFTEC mobile app with full detail and in-depth information about the technical presentations.
