Groundwater Week 2022 was the second largest event in NGWA history.

(WESTERVILLE, OH — December 14, 2022) The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) held its second largest Groundwater Week in its history December 6-8, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Returning to Vegas for the first time since 2019, Groundwater Week 2022 had almost 6,500 attendees, which made it NGWA’s most successful show since 2006. The attendees came from 36 countries and all 50 states.

Attendees took in more than 60 workshops and educational sessions and visited 282 exhibitors on a crowded exhibit hall floor. There was a total of 78,100 square feet of exhibit space, the second most in NGWA convention history.

Groundwater Week collocated with the Irrigation Association for the third time and the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association had a pavilion for the second consecutive year in the exhibit hall.

“Groundwater Week 2022 will go down as one of the most successful shows in NGWA history and we could not have done it without the support of the entire industry,” said NGWA CEO Terry S. Morse, CAE, CIC. “From exhibitors to presenters, attendees, and staff, everyone put in a tremendous effort to make this show successful and I cannot thank them enough. It’s a great reminder of what we can accomplish as an industry when we’re all working together, and we can’t wait to see everyone next year.”

During the NGWA Delegates Meeting, Jason House, LG, PG, of Woodard & Curran Inc. in Portland, Maine, became the NGWA president, marking just the second time someone from the NGWA Scientists and Engineers Section has served as president.

Groundwater Week 2023 will return to Vegas and registration will begin next year.
