The Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment and Transport (WWETT) Trade Show Successfully Wraps with Over 10,500 Registered Professionals in its Return to a Live Format Fueling Wastewater Industry Connection and Growth
May 18, 2022
WWETT, the world's largest annual trade show for wastewater and environmental service professionals, concluded its annual event February 21-24, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
With 10,500 registered professionals, the annual event connected notable and emergent brands with thousands of buyers, while providing ample networking opportunities and a full range of education led by renowned industry experts.
The 2022 edition of WWETT took over 270,000 NSF of the Convention Center, hosting 450 industry-leading suppliers in the expo hall; thus, offering attendees access to a wide variety of products and activations from the world’s largest suppliers and manufacturers to specialized SMBs with specific services. Manufacturers and suppliers showcased the latest products, services, and technology for the water and wastewater industries, including notable companies such as Federal Signal, HammerHead Trenchless, Infiltrator Water Technologies, Satellite Industries, Ridge Tool, Draincables Direct, and more.
In addition to an expansive expo floor, registered participants had the opportunity to engage with world-class education made available at the event. The event’s educational programs served as inclusive and productive sessions that allowed for connections in specific groups. WWETT 2022 registered over 10,000 seats in education classes. Contributing their industry-wide reach across applications, 2022 trade association partners who supported this year's event include NASSCO, NAWT, NOWRA, SSCSC, SSPMA, and Wastewater Education 501c3. Many of the education sessions counted toward fulfilling required continuing education units (CEUs) and professional development hours (PDHs).
“The opportunities for learning, engagement, and growth for both attendees and exhibitors were exemplary at this year’s WWETT event,” said Lauren Lamb, VP, Strategy, Marketing, and Conference, WWETT at Informa Markets. “The live format allowed for regional and non-local companies to communicate their products and expectations effectively, while expanding their connections in the proper areas that will largely benefit their company and consumers, as well as the industry as a whole. The focus of quality product and innovation was at a peak this year, with many exhibitors launching products and solutions to solve the industry’s current challenges.”
Mixers for Women in the Industry and New to the Industry both served as successful networking events. The mixers hosted a larger audience than in years past, with important connections established. Women in the Industry’s purpose is to connect women throughout the convenience services industry, encouraging professionals to meet, share ideas and develop important business relationships.
WWETT hosted a well-attended welcome party with over 1,400 industry members in attendance, which featured live music and entertainment as well as casino games. The welcome party served as another opportunity for industry connections and engagement.
This year’s raffle was an astounding success, with a total of 14 raffle winners, all of which were WWETT attendees. The fan favorite prizes included a Yeti cooler.
