The American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE), the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®), and Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI), in cooperation with the World Plumbing Council (WPC), plan to convene the eighth biennial Emerging Water Technology Symposium (EWTS) in May 2024.
The symposium will take place at the Scottsdale Plaza and Villas in Scottsdale, Arizona, on May 14 and 15, 2024.
The eighth EWTS is a prominent event for those in the fields of safe plumbing, water distribution, and water efficiency.
For the 2024 event, the overall symposium theme will be “The Nexus Between Safety and Sustainability” and will focus on avoiding the unintended consequences of striving for both.
“The EWTS co-convening organizations are excited about taking a different approach for the 2024 event by building the program around the theme of ‘The Nexus Between Safety and Sustainability,’ an issue the plumbing industry has wrestled with for years,” said Dave Viola, CEO of The IAPMO Group. “We invite everyone interested in doing so to submit an abstract for consideration and especially look forward to submissions that focus their message on this theme.”
The EWTS call for abstracts is out now, available for download here. Submissions are due Sept. 30, 2023.
The co-conveners stress that the EWTS is still an international event and welcome abstracts and participation from across the globe.
