2018 WAHC registrations open
Registration is officially open for the 2018 World Aquatic Health Conference (WAHC) being held in Charleston, South Carolina, USA, 10–12 October.
Hosted by the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF), WAHC is billed as a must for aquatic professionals interested in drowning prevention, improving air and water quality, preventing biofilms, filtration science and facility management.
If you happen to be stateside at the time but can't quite make it to Charleston, this year's event features six WAHCity broadcast locations that allow interested parties to attend sessions without travel to Charleston. If you're travelling to Boston, Colorado Springs, Dallas, LA, Minneapolis or Niagara Falls, check out the WAHCity page on the event website for more info.
Planning ahead pays off, as early bird pricing is now on offer. More than 400 aquatic specialists convene at the WAHC to network with industry leaders, develop professionally and help shape the future through aquatics. Annual attendees represent all segments of the aquatics industry, including pool operators, service technicians, aquatic managers, environmental health officials, academia, pool builders/designers/engineers, health professionals, aquatic therapists, retailers and manufacturers.
For all the info, including registration, seminar schedule, presenter bios, special conference events and link to group rate hotel room reservations, go to the 2018 WAHC website.
