About the IWC!

The Executive Committee of the International Water ConferenceĀ® (IWC) voted unanimously to present the 2020 IWC in an ā€œall-virtualā€ environment.

This means we wonā€™t have the opportunity to benefit from the in-person gathering during IWC this November in San Antonio, Texas, but we have plans for an alternate delivery platform with eShowĀ®, a leading provider in the virtual-conference world. Accordingly, we believe the 2020 IWC is well-prepared to present the same educational and networking opportunities as you have come to expect and enjoy. We are working diligently to prepare this virtual platform to present the same high-quality technical presentations that the IWC is renowned for, albeit in a different delivery platform. Likewise, we are planning for a full complement of continuing education workshops as presented by our expert instructors. Additionally, we will have exhibit and sponsorship opportunities to promote your business to all involved with the International Water Conference. We will roll out details on these opportunities, as well as details on the conference registration very soon, so please check this page frequently!


Thank you to all who participated in our survey questionnaires which helped guide these decisions. While we all hoped to return to an in-person gathering with friends of the IWC, we believe it is in the best interest of all at this time to do so remotely, from the comfort and safety of your own environment. We look forward to better days ahead soon! In the meantime please look for additional details on this virtual IWC, the first in our 81 year history!


The International Water ConferenceĀ® (IWC) is a strong educational conference, founded with an emphasis on commercial free discussions on technology.

The IWC presents the latest in scientific advances and practical applications in this field, cutting across a wide range of industries, technologies and functional areas. As the preeminent international technical forum in the field, the IWC brings together end users, researchers, practicing engineers, managers, educators, suppliers and contractors. It is dedicated to advancing new developments in the treatment, use and reuse of water for industrial and other engineering purposes. Attendees come to learn unbiased details about the latest applications available in the industry, get educated on current technology and hold wide ranging discussions with their peers active in water treatment.
