Updated: October 15, 2020

The Water and Wastewater Equipment, Treatment and Transport Show (WWETT) is Rescheduled for May 2021

Dallas, TX – After discussions with industry peers and partners, the WWETT Show team made the decision to postpone the event to May of 2021. This decision was not made lightly and was done with our community’s best interest in mind. In order to provide the best possible experience for our customers, the WWETT Show will take place May 3rd-6th in the same location – The Indiana Convention Center.

“We understand how important the sense of community and gathering is to this industry, and we wanted to do our part to ensure a productive and relaxed environment for all those in attendance,” said Sue Pino, Sales Director for The WWETT Show. “So much goes into preparing for an event, so we wanted to provide our exhibitors, speakers, attendees and industry partners ample notice of our plans for the 2021 show.”

The WWETT Show will adopt Informa AllSecure at our May 2021 event. AllSecure is Informa’s approach to ensuring the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and quality for operating events.

The WWETT Show team is looking forward to providing an opportunity for the industry to reconvene in 2021. Our industry’s sense of community and support is what continues to drive us all forward.

Updates will continue to be provided as they become available (INSERT LINK). The WWETT Show will be releasing information on new digital programs and products aimed at connecting the industry, keeping you informed and providing resources until we are able to meet again in May of 2021. For more information, please visit our Show Updates and Resources Page. For any additional questions regarding Informa AllSecure please reach out to Morgan Harper, Marketing Manager for The WWETT Show at [email protected]

We have seen this industry come together in support of one another like never before and we are looking forward to reuniting as we return to the live event this Spring. We are eager to continue our role in driving the industry forward, connecting our communities and supporting your businesses. Thank you for your support; we look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis in May.

Indiana Convention Center Health and Safety

Since March 17, all of the Indiana Convention Center's one million square feet have been sealed off. During this time, the Center invested over $7 million in health and safety enhancements including hospital-grade filtration systems, contactless faucets and toilets, increased hand sanitizer stations, Plexiglas shields at information desks and food and beverage stations, and more.

Our Committments as Part of Informa AllSecure

The WWETT Show will adapt, at a minimum, the following standards from Informa AllSecure and will add additional procedures if necessary:  

  • Enhanced cleaning: Public, high-traffic areas of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center will undertake enhanced, deep cleaning before, during and after the IRE. We’re working with the venue to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. This includes continuous sanitization throughout the course of an event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food and beverage areas.
  • Non-contact registration: We’ll have a system that facilitates non-contact registration and badge pick-up for participants.
  • Limited physical contact: We are requesting that participants avoid physical contact, such as handshakes and embraces, promoting alternative ways to greet business partners. The exchange of printed materials, such as business cards and sales brochures, is discouraged, with digital alternatives recommended. In fact, exhibitors can use their Upgraded Media Package to upload videos, PDFs and more to their exhibitor listing on the IRE website.
  • First aid: All event participants will have access to a qualified EMT and a separate quarantine area. Participants will be asked not to attend if they are feeling unwell, and the show team will follow local health authority guidance on detecting and managing anyone who displays symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Adapted conference rooms & sessions: We’re revising seating arrangements and set-up in conference and meeting rooms, to enable greater space between seats. We’re also working on solutions to avoid the sharing of equipment, like computers and microphones.

You can expect to see that health and safety is a priority and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organised event experience.

As a starting point, Informa AllSecure events will be run according to the guidance of government or official authority guidance, and according to any venue-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa AllSecure events follow ten key commitments around hygiene, physical distancing and protection & detection, with additional measures in place where relevant and practical.

Informa AllSecure is the approach we are taking to enhancing the health and safety standards in place at Informa events following COVID-19.

From exhibitors to sponsors, speakers, visitors and journalists, those who come to our events come to connect, learn, know more and do more business, effectively and safely.

The standards and practices that make up Informa AllSecure are designed to provide confidence that at every Informa event, we are striving to provide the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and quality.

Informa AllSecure is based on a set of event industry standards, called All Secure.

The All Secure industry standards were developed collaboratively by a group including industry associations UFI, AEO and SISO, event organisers Informa, Reed Exhibitions and Clarion, a range of event venues, suppliers and with input from health, government and local authorities.

Informa AllSecure is the way these industry-wide All Secure standards are being applied to Informa events.

No environment or space inside or outside of the home can ever be 100% safe.

At controlled event gatherings like Informa events and through Informa AllSecure, we have put in place a comprehensive range of enhanced standards that make the health and safety of everyone who attends a priority.

Through measures such as enhanced deep cleaning before, during and after events, non-contact registration, distancing and crowd management, and the deployment of screening and protective equipment, we are striving to provide the highest standards of safety, hygiene and cleanliness, and to ensure that following COVID-19, our customers, partners and colleagues can connect, learn, know more and do business effectively, safely and with confidence.

We are contacting all participants before the event to let them know what to expect at the event and how to prepare. Upon arrival, signage will be displayed throughout the venue to remind everyone of the enhanced health and safety measures that are in place, and our expectations of all visitors.

We are also using technology to reduce the need for physical contact, for example, non-contact registration, and actively managing visitor flow to ensure physical distancing can be maintained.

If we anticipate queues/lines and crowds during peak times at our event, we will stagger entry times and use non-contact registration to speed up the entry process. Where queuing/lining up is anticipated, we will use signage and floor markings to remind everyone to maintain physical distancing.

We are considering adjusting our floor plan, including, for example directing traffic in a single direction, to allow everyone to maintain physical distancing.

In conference and break-out areas, we are spacing chairs and tables accordingly.

Where queuing/lining up is anticipated, we will display signage to remind everyone to maintain the minimum physical distance.

We are following the advice of governments or local authorities regarding face masks and the use of additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as eye coverings and gloves, we will advise everyone accordingly so they can come prepared.

We are closely monitoring the advice from local health authorities on screening participants and we will follow that guidance. If screening measures are put in place, we will let everyone know what to expect in advance.
