WEF continues to highlight innovation in the water sector with its Innovation Showcase at WEFTEC 2012, WEF’s 85th Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference, this fall in New Orleans, LA. The Innovation Pavilion, one component of the broader Showcase, will house a host of companies offering cutting-edge products and services. Featured exhibitors include finalists and winners of the Imagine H2O Water Innovation Prize and the 2012 BlueTech Forum Showcase. In addition to exhibits, the Pavilion includes a theater where presentations will occur throughout the week. Here visitors can learn from the recent WEF Innovative Technology Award winners and others—including operators—who recognize that innovation is not necessarily a new product, but a way of thinking. Innovation Showcase activities will take place in Hall C of the New Orleans Morial Convention Center October 1-3, 2012.
A series of programming dedicated to innovative ways of solving problems in the water sector will run in conjunction with the Pavilion throughout the week. Topics covered include turning research into saleable products, securing financial support for good ideas and developing strategic partnerships. Visit www.weftec.org/innovation for the latest details.
