2018 Annual Conference & Trade Show registration open

Registration is now open for the BCWWA Annual Conference & Trade Show, British Columbia`s premier water and wastewater industry event, featuring one of the largest trade shows of its kind in western Canada! 

Join us in Penticton on May 13 to 15 for our 46th Annual Conference and Trade Show to connect with exhibitors, network with colleagues, engage in educational sessions, and build your skills and industry knowledge.

This year's conference theme is Preparing for the Future of Water

Water and wastewater professionals face an ever-increasing number of concerns that affect their ability to deliver safe and reliable water services. Internal factors such as aging infrastructure, limited budgets, and workforce retirements create increased stress and demands on systems. External factors such as increasing populations, adverse events (flood, fire, earthquake, drought), climate change, security threats, and provincial and federal policy decisions all directly contribute to stress and demand as well.

With these risks come the opportunity to find more effective and innovative solutions. These may come from sharing of best practices, or stepping outside the box entirely. What does the future utility look like? How can we accommodate the growing needs of a community? What can we do to move towards a more resilient future state?

The 2018 BCWWA Annual Conference & Trade Show is focused on Preparing for the Future of Water. This theme addresses both the concerns and risks going into the future as well as the optimism and innovation that ensures the long-term success of the industry.
