Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment and Transport (WWETT), the world's largest annual trade show for wastewater and environmental service professionals, brought more than 500 exhibitors showcasing new and innovative products and services and over 12,000 participants, February 20-23, to the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. WWETT continues to provide attendees with a 360-degree experience, fueling cross-industry collaboration.
As water and wastewater treatment plays an essential part in the processing of discharging purified water back into the environment, WWETT provides a meeting place for further discovery of niche solutions designed for all problems and challenges the industry faces.
Marc Acampora, Market Leader, WWETT Show said, "WWETT is the perfect place for wastewater and environmental service professionals to understand industry trends and learn about new innovations. The energy at this year's event was contagious and cements the importance of this event for the industry. We look forward to bringing the wastewater and environmental service community together again next year."
The WWETT accredited conference program delivered an unparalleled education experience including nearly 100 sessions across 21 tracks targeted to municipalities, plumbers, portable sanitation professionals, septic contractors, sewer contractors and wastewater professionals. Many sessions counted toward fulfilling required continuing educational units (CEUs) and professional development hours (PDHs).
WWETT invited the first ever keynote speaker, Navy SEAL Chad Williams to the stage on the first day of the conference to discuss effective leadership, resilience, teamwork, overcoming adversity and motivation.
The WWETT Expo Hall featured products and services from the following categories: Septic Pumping, Portable Sanitation, Sewer, Waterblasting, Safety Equipment, Pumper Trucks, Dewatering, and Software. Exhibitors from around the globe participated, including Federal Signal, HammerHead Trenchless, Satellite Industries, Vac-Con, Inc and CUES, Inc.
One of the highlights of the WWETT Show, exhibitors demonstrated new products to large audiences of attendees.

As attendees attend the expo to discover new tools and learn how to use them daily, product demonstrations are an important part of the event.
