(WESTERVILLE, OH — December 12, 2012) The National Ground Water Association’s 2012 Groundwater Expo and Annual Meeting last week showed increases in every attendance category and once again topped 300 exhibiting firms.
The NGWA® Groundwater Expo and Annual Meeting took place December 4-7 in Las Vegas.
“Excellent business opportunities and strong educational offerings really brought people out in all sectors of our membership,” said NGWA Chief Executive Officer Kevin B. McCray, CAE. “In case after case, exhibiting manufacturers said they had a very good Expo. Many of the workshops were packed, which is another good sign for the groundwater industry.”
After three consecutive years in Las Vegas, the NGWA Groundwater Expo will be held next December in Nashville’s new Music City Center — the most expensive publicly financed complex in the state’s history. The $623 million downtown convention center is the length of more than a dozen football fields. At its 1.2 million square feet of total space, it’s among the largest convention centers in the South.
“Nashville is really pulling out the stops, and we expect the 2013 Expo to be a great one in one of America’s great cities with some of the newest facilities available,” McCray said.
NGWA, a nonprofit organization composed of U.S. and international groundwater professionals — contractors, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, scientists, and engineers — is dedicated to advancing groundwater knowledge. NGWA’s vision is to be the leading groundwater association that advocates the responsible development, management, and use of water.
