October 3-5, 2023   |   Las Vegas

The world of water keeps moving fast. Get ahead of the curve.

Water utilities and systems are increasingly challenged by climate change, emerging contaminants, evolving regulations, aging infrastructure, conservation needs, and much more. New technologies are being invented, new strategies and programs are being developed, new ways to engage customers are arising, and new models for managing and governing systems for drinking water and wastewater are being explored.

At WSI, technical sessions will cover everything from advancing the adoption of efficient products, to alternate water supplies, to marketing and outreach and much more.  

The exhibit hall will feature pioneering creators of the most advanced water products, services, and strategies.

This established and highly regarded conference provides a practical forum for a wide range of water technology professionals to exchange the latest research and information. For COVID-19 resources, and health and wellness information, please visit our COVID-19 resources page
