Several associations and media companies have recently signed on as endorsing sponsors/partners for the inaugural of Smart H2O Summit conference and exposition taking place Aug. 17 to 19, 2015 in San Francisco.
The Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE), California Urban Water Conservation Council (Council), the Local Government Commission (LGC) and the International Private Water Assn. (IPWA) will work with Smart H2O Summit (SHS) to make their members and the water conservation marketplace aware of this new educational opportunity.
All the associations will have an information booth on the exposition floor and/or a presence in the conference program. Mary Ann Dickinson, president and CEO of AWE, will present a session on Water Offset Programs and Sustainability on August 18, and participate in the Pricing Panel Session on August 17. Kathy Shandling, IPWA executive director, will chair a Mayors’ Panel discussion on Private and Public Utilities on Wednesday, August 19.
"Between California's historic drought, mandated water use reductions, and the Sustainable Water Management Act, now more than ever local government leaders and industry professionals must work together to achieve appropriate water use,” said Danielle V. Dolan, project manager, water programs of LGC. “This Summit is an important venue for that dialogue, and will help ensure our communities' resilience in the face of climate change."
In addition to the associations, several industry business publications are partnering with Smart H2O Summit. These publications include Water & Wastes Digest and Storm Water Solutions, among others.
“We are delighted to have these industry-leading associations and media companies as our partners in educating the marketplace,” said Jane McDermott, SHS show director. “They will bring valuable content and perspectives to all our attendees.”
