Innovation Pavilion

Tuesday, January 28, 2020; 8:00AM-4PM

The New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA) and the Northeast Water Innovation Network (NEWIN) are excited to announce we are merging in January 2020. This merger will enhance our joint efforts over the years to better serve the Water Innovation Community in New England. As such we are excited to once again host the Water Innovation Pavilion, taking place on Tuesday January 28, during the 2020 NEWEA Annual Conference in Boston.  Sponsor this event >>

NEWEA and NEWIN, which exists to highlight water-innovation as a super-cluster with over 300 companies in the community and throughout New England, modeled the Innovation Pavilion after a similar forum at the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) Annual Conference. This event was developed with the goal of building awareness, sharing ideas, and creating connections between businesses, utilities, regulators, and academics to drive innovation in our region. The close proximity of so many cities, utilities, businesses, and innovators who are passionate about water makes the Northeast unique in the water-cluster ecosystem in the United States.

The Innovation Pavilion will highlight a selection of the most promising water technology businesses while championing an important dialogue about innovation. Learn more about Exhibiting Opportunities >>
