Virtual Trade Show
In addition to a comprehensive conference program, exhibitors will be on-hand in virtual booths to share information about their latest water and wastewater products and network with attendees. Visiting a virtual booth provides attendees with an innovative way to learn about and evaluate products that interest them -- without traveling to a physical tradeshow or walking an exhibit hall.

Virtual H2O takes networking efforts to the next level, enabling real-time interaction between vendors and attendees in the form of live chat and email exchanges. Exhibitors can also share information about their products and services through the use of video as well as literature downloads.

Virtual H2O offers a unique opportunity to learn, network, and evaluate -- without the hassle, expense, and travel required of a physical event.
