Virtual Conference

Inspired Connections

Every year this conference allows us to learn, connect with friends across the globe and have a little fun. This October things will be different with us meeting virtually, instead of face-to-face, but that doesn’t mean we can't still connect. We’re excited to be presenting at the Water Environment Federation’s annual conference, WEFTEC Connect, in their first fully virtual event. We hope you will join us as we share research, case studies and insights on boundary-breaking water quality topics.

Take a look at our speaker lineup. See the faces of HDR participating in WEFTEC. We can’t wait to make the most of our connections and accomplish great things with you.
