Aquatic Life will be attending Water Technologies Symposium 2017.

About WaterTech 2017


ESAA is pleased to report that the 9th Annual WaterTech Symposium, held in April 2016 was a huge success! Building on that success, we are announcing WaterTech 2017 – the premier water technology transfer event for environmental professionals. Attendance at the eighth WaterTech exceeded all expectations, with a waiting list for both delegates and exhibitors. WaterTech 2017 is highly recommended for all industry sectors that have an interest in the technical aspects of water and wastewater management.

Since 2002, ESAA has hosted the incredibly successful RemTech Symposium each October in Banff. Delegate & exhibitor numbers, as well as sponsorship support, increased steadily, causing RemTech to outgrow its original venue after three years. Owing to the ongoing space limitations at RemTech, ESAA has not been able to profile water technology to the level it deserves and delegates want.

WaterTech gives us the opportunity to focus on a relevant and growing area of interest in the environmental sector.

Who Should Attend?

Attendance at WaterTech 2017 is highly recommended for all industry sectors that have an interest in the technical aspects of water and wastewater management including:

Agriculture Companies, Municipalities, Engineering Firms, Drilling Companies, Pipeline Companies, Natural Gas Producers, Energy Marketers, Environmental Consulting Firms, Land Developers, Governmental/Regulatory Bodies, Aboriginal Groups, Oil and Gas Service Companies, Law Firms, Financiers, Mining Companies, Waste Brokers and Managers, etc…
