TULSA, OK, May 4, 2010 -- For many water professionals, attending trade shows is a vitally important activity, one that exposes them to the trends, technologies, and acquaintances they need to do their jobs more effectively. With many travel budgets strained or scrapped, however, it's become increasingly more difficult for water and wastewater professionals to get where they need to go.

Nearly 1,500 water and wastewater professionals registered for the completely online conference Virtual H20, which took place April 20-21. Requiring no travel and no time away from the office, Virtual H2O allowed attendees to simply log in and wander the virtual aisles, see virtual exhibits, and attend virtual presentations. It presented an innovative -- and convenient -- opportunity to network with and learn from leaders in the water and wastewater industries.

And -- if you missed the live broadcast, not to worry! Virtual H2O is archived and will be available for the next three months. You can still register, look around, attend presentations and submit questions. All from the comfort of your desk and at your own pace.

Virtual Trade Show
