► Post-Show Press Release

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.

Next year's event is returning to the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, February 20-23! Get notified when registration opens by signing up to receive show news and updates from WWETT.

WWETT Secures Key Industry Support and 60 First-Time Exhibitors for Its Return to a Live February 2022 Event

February 15, 2022

► Pre-Show Press Release

Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment and Transport (WWETT), the world's largest annual trade show for wastewater and environmental service professionals, is excited for the conference and exhibition's in-person return to the Indiana Convention Center, February 21-24 (Expo Hall open February 22-24). Set to reunite municipalities, plumbers, portable sanitation professionals, septic contractors, sewer contractors, and wastewater professionals, the event serves as the industry's premier event to connect with peers, ideate solutions to today's most pressing challenges, and establish new business partnerships. 

While the global water and wastewater market is experiencing rapid growth, projected to value nearly $500 billion by 2028, the industry is undergoing many challenges from climate change, urbanization, aging infrastructure, spiraling energy costs, and an evolving regulatory environment, posing a critical need for product and process innovation. "These challenges are not impacting a specific subset within the water and wastewater sector; the need to discover new solutions and improve operational efficiencies is an industry-wide issue," said Lauren Lamb, VP, Informa Markets. "We're proud to help the industry overcome these challenges and provide a platform for individuals and companies alike to network, learn from one another, and engage with those that fall outside their local market."

With only a week to go, the industry is throwing its full support behind WWETT 2022, with notable exhibitors such as Super Products, RIDGID, Imperial Industries, J&J Portable Sanitation Products, HammerHead Trenchless, and Jetters Northwest joining hundreds of other companies in the Expo Hall. Contributing their industry-wide reach across applications, 2022 trade association partners supporting this year's event include IOWPA, IOWWA, NASSCO, NAWT, NOWRA, PSAI, SSCSC, SSPMA, and Wastewater Education 501c3.

Education continues to be a core component to WWETT serving as a springboard for industry advancement and arming attendees with actionable insights. The curated conference agenda hosts more than 90 expert-led sessions, with many counting toward fulfilling required continuing education units (CEUs) and professional development hours (PDHs), drilling down into a wide range of topics spanning three core attendee groups: municipal, septic, and pumpers. Notable sessions include:

  • When the Going Got Tough, the Tough Got Going – Processing Liquid Transportable Waste
    • We will discuss the challenges of generating permits for disposal of solids and liquids. We will highlight the greater success stories of 2020 and 2021 and how we did it despite the challenges of many of us working from home offices.
  • Setting Up State Approved Disposal Facilities 
    • Do you own your own pumper business and have been thinking about plans to start processing liquid transportable waste?
  • Overcoming the Challenges of High Strength Waste in OSTDS
    • Many small towns are home to distilleries, breweries, and other businesses with high-strength waste. Join this panel session to discover how Onsite Treatment and Disposal Systems have adapted to meet the needs of waste streams that go far beyond domestic.
  • Best Practices to Reach 100% Enrollment after the FOG Digital Transformation
    • Learn how digital transformation in FOG programs changed the scope of activities for wastewater professionals and impacted the level of engagement of Food Service Establishments and Grease Haulers.

New product discovery is at the forefront of the 2022 event, with new products available to order or buy onsite to “equip your business for the year in only a week at WWETT.” An additional spotlight on new products is the Live Expo Hall Demonstrations, enabling attendees to see product demonstrations first-hand from top manufacturers and learn best practices to increase productivity. Big-name demos from Madewell and Vac-Con will tease top-of-the-line tools and showcase recently released or patent-pending products.

In addition to the robust expo show floor and world-class education, WWETT participants benefit from networking and brand exposure opportunities.

  • WWETT 2022 Welcome Party: Join attendees and exhibitors for the casino-style themed kick-off event to enjoy live music and drinks while networking with the industry's leading visionaries in an upbeat environment.
  • Beer & Wine: Sponsored by Custom One Truck Source
