April 24-27, 2016, Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center, Kissimmee
A non-profit, educational and scientific organization, FWRC is a joint conference of the Florida Section American Water Works Association, the Florida Water Environment Association, and the Florida Water and Pollution Control Operators Association. The Florida Water Resources Conference is dedicated to preserving and enhancing Florida’s water environment.
The 2015 Florida Water Resources Conference (FWRC), held May 3-6, was extraordinarily special on many accounts. Attendance was record setting, attracting over 2780 participants, and so it seems that the 268 exhibitors on hand were pleased with the turnout and level of booth traffic. This is significant in a quasi-recession, when many planned conferences have had to be suddenly canceled due to lack of interest.
The conference’s first-time visit to the Caribe Royale Resort on World Center Drive in Orlando set the stage for new insights into issues that Florida faces in the water and wastewater industries. At a more qualitative level, this year’s theme, “The Many Faces of Water,” gave the attendees an opportunity to see themselves in print, and the many facets that are needed to cover the intricacies of the industry.
“I recently attended the 2015 FWRC in Orlando and I would like to start out by saying that was an absolutely fantastic show. From the organization to the amount of attendees to the overall presentation of the conference, I really enjoyed this year’s show.”
Jeff Graff, Perma-Liner Industries, LLC.
