Technologies Symposium 2013 (
April 10 - 12, 2013
Fairmont Banff Springs
ESAA is pleased to report that the 5th Annual WaterTech
Symposium, held in April 2012, was a huge success! Building on that
success, we are announcing WaterTech 2013 – the premier
water technology transfer event for environmental professionals.
Attendance at the fifth WaterTech exceeded all expectations,
with a waiting list for both delegates and exhibitors. WaterTech
2013 is highly recommended for all industry sectors that
have an interest in the technical aspects of water and wastewater
Since 2002, ESAA has hosted the incredibly successful RemTech
Symposium each October in Banff. Delegate & exhibitor numbers,
as well as sponsorship support, increased steadily, causing RemTech
to outgrow its original venue after three years. Owing to the ongoing
space limitations at RemTech, ESAA has not been able
to profile water technology to the level it deserves and delegates
want. WaterTech gives us the opportunity to focus
on a relevant and growing area of interest in the environmental
sector. ESAA anticipates close to 400 delegates and more than 30
exhibitors will participate in the fifth WaterTech.
