WEFTEC 2015 Makes History with Record-Setting Attendance and Exhibition

Record-setting attendance and exhibition numbers–25,048 registrants and 1,033 companies using 311,600 net square feet of exhibit space–has made WEFTEC 2015 the largest and most successful to date. The Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) 88th annual technical exhibition and conference was held Sept. 26-30 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill.Chicago was the site of the first annual meeting that would evolve into today’s WEFTEC and continues to be a popular destination for what has become the world’s largest annual water quality conference and exhibition. Currently rotating between Chicago and New Orleans, WEFTEC was last held there in 2013—an equally successful event that set the previous attendance and exhibition records.

“For more than eighty years, WEFTEC has been the world’s leading forum for water quality management. It’s the place to innovate, exchange knowledge, and connect with experts from across the continent, and around the world,” said WEF Executive Director Eileen O’Neill. “The record-breaking success of this year’s event is a testament to the value, diversity, and depth for which WEFTEC is known and respected.”

Planning for next year’s event in New Orleans is already underway. Submissions for the 2016 Call for Abstracts will be accepted through December 1, 2015 and 295,000 square feet of floor space has already been reserved for the award-winning exhibition. WEFTEC 2016—WEF’s 89th annual technical exhibition and conference—will be held Sept. 24-28 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La. Registration and housing will open in spring 2016. For the latest details visit
