MADISON — Wisconsin companies in the water technology sector are invited to be part of the state delegation that is attending the Water Environment Federation’s Technical Exhibition and Conference this fall in New Orleans.

Companies in the delegation will benefit from the support of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. and The Water Council, which will jointly operate a booth highlighting the strengths of the state’s water sector, according to a statement.

WEFTEC runs from Sept. 27 to Oct. 1 and is the world’s largest annual water quality exhibition, with nearly 1,000 exhibitors displaying the latest in water quality research technology and services.

Advance registration is available through Aug. 29. To find more information or register, visit www.inwisconsin.com/weftec.

“There is no question that Milwaukee and Wisconsin have an international reputation for being global leaders in the water technology sector,” said Reed Hall, secretary and CEO of WEDC. “This event will provide state companies another opportunity to showcase all the innovation in the sector that is originating right here in Wisconsin.”
