WEF's 88th annual water quality conference and exhibition was held on 26-30 September in Chicago.

“For more than eighty years, WEFTEC has been the world’s leading forum for water quality management," says WEF Executive Director Eileen O’Neill.

"It’s the place to innovate, exchange knowledge, and connect with experts from across the continent, and around the world. The record-breaking success of this year’s event is a testament to the value, diversity, and depth for which WEFTEC is known and respected.”

The event currently rotates between Chicago and New Orleans. WEFTEC 2016 will be held on 24-28 September at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. Submissions for the 2016 Call for Abstracts will be accepted through 1 December 2015.

The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is a not-for-profit technical and educational organisation of 36,000 individual members and 75 affiliated Member Associations representing water quality professionals around the world.
