The 2016 Florida Water Resources Conference (FWRC), held April 24-27 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, was extraordinarily special on many accounts. Attendance was record setting, attracting over 3,193 participants, and so it seems that the 319 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 return visit to the beautiful Gaylord Palms Resort 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.
“Another great conference.”
Greg Chomic, Heyward Incorporated
“Once again a wonderful FWRC event!”
Brian Stahl, Infrastructure Solution Services
“The FWRC keeps raising the bar higher and higher each year, congratulation on another impressive conference.”
Nabil Muhaisen, Past-President, Florida Water Environment Association
