WQA Convention Registrations for Denver on pace with Orlando

March 5th Housing Deadline less than one month away

LISLE, Ill. – Registrations for the 2018 WQA Convention & Expositions are on pace with sign-ups for the same period a year ago leading up to the Convention in Orlando. This year’s WQA Convention takes place March 26-29, 2018 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. In 2017, 56 countries were represented among the more than 3,000 attendees at the Convention in Orlando.

“Enthusiasm is strong”

“The enthusiasm is strong for our upcoming Convention in Denver,” said WQA Meeting Services Director LyNae Schleyer. “We know that many of our members are still in the process of formulating their plans, but we want to encourage them to register as soon as possible to take advantage of the Convention hotel rates and to avoid paying an additional $50 to register on site.”

Housing Deadline

The housing registration deadline is March 5th. Anyone who has registered by the end of February will be entered in a new drawing for the chance to win a $100 Visa Gift card.

Education tracks include Business Operations with topics such as recruitment and retention, empowering employees for greater engagement and managing online reviews. A one-day Business Operations Boot Camp takes place on March 25th, one day before the Convention opens, and requires a separate registration. More information is available at

Other sessions include commercial applications designed to help attendees understand the sub-sectors of the commercial water treatment market, residential applications, water treatment technologies and regulatory changes affecting the industry.

Limited exhibit space available

Attendees and exhibitors can register for the event at Limited exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Exhibitors should go here to secure their booth space.
