As quarter one comes to an end, the stormwater conference season is well underway. With that in mind, make sure exhibitions and expos have a priority on this year’s calendar. Stormwater conferences are the strongest investments in establishing new and improved ways to protect water, our most valuable resource. Industry conferences consist of training, networking, scouting competitors, industry trends, and discovering compliance strategies.

 With the vast amount of stormwater conferences in the United States, this task can become daunting. Instead, we wanted to help by sharing the 10 stormwater conferences we feel are worth the plane flight. Whether you are looking to be an attendee or go the extra mile and exhibit, these conferences are sure to bring great learning opportunities, handshakes with new partnerships, and experience a few beautiful cities along the way.
