2021 Virtual Emerging Water Technology Symposium Announces Program, Opens Registration

The American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE), the Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE), the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), and Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI), in cooperation with the World Plumbing Council (WPC), announce that registration for the seventh biennial Emerging Water Technology Symposium (EWTS) is now open. The event takes place May 11-12, comprised of a three-hour program beginning each day at 10 a.m. ET.

This biennial event continues to provide critical insight into the future of water related industries. Nowhere else is such focused attention provided for professionals on all facets of optimizing the safe and efficient use of water. To view the full program for this year’s virtual event, please visit www.ewts.org.

Because the EWTS is being produced in the virtual environment this year, the co-conveners are offering the event at the much-reduced rate of $69 in order to make the event available to a wider audience.

“On behalf of the other co-conveners, we are very much looking forward to this event being able to reach professionals that have never had the opportunity to attend this event in the past,” said Tony Marcello, senior vice president of Training and Credential Services at IAPMO.

The co-conveners are looking forward to welcoming everyone in person in May 2022 for the next EWTS event that will take place in San Antonio.

“Despite much of the world having to shut down as a result of the pandemic, the issues that impact clean and safe water, sanitation, water scarcity, and other water-related challenges don’t rest,” said IAPMO CEO Dave Viola. “IAPMO is proud to see this event move forward virtually in an effort to keep the industry informed and energized to confront these issues.”
