All 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and 32 other nations were represented at the expo
The National Ground Water Assn.'s (NGWA) 2013 Expo that took place Dec. 3 to 6 in Nashville, Tenn., posted strong numbers in both attendance and exhibitors.
"The 2013 NGWA Groundwater Expo and Annual Meeting ranks fifth all-time among our non-Las Vegas venues in our 65-year history," said NGWA CEO Kevin McCray, CAE.
More than 3,680 attended the NGWA Expo and spanned all sectors of the groundwater industry — water well drillers and contractors, manufacturers and suppliers, scientists and engineers. All 50 states were represented, along with Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and 32 other nations.
In addition to 60-plus hours of educational offerings, guest lecturers, skills testing activities, NGWA award presentations and nearly 300 exhibitors — more than 30 of which were first-time participants — attendees also had the chance for some fun, including concerts by the Sweethearts of the Rodeo and the Bellamy Brothers.
As succinctly summed up by Alyson McDonald with a posting Dec. 9 on NGWA's Facebook page, "Outstanding meeting in Nashville."
