Innovation Pavilion Exhibit Opportunities

Innovation Pavilion – Exhibit Opportunities

Tuesday, January 24, 2023; 8:00AM-4PM


The New England Water Environment Association’s (NEWEA) Innovation Council is excited to announce the 5th annual Water Innovation Pavilion, taking place during the 2023 NEWEA Annual Conference in Boston, MA.

NEWEA’s Innovation Council brings together people who share a common passion for bringing solutions to market to address challenges and opportunities in water.  Members represent all sectors of the water economy including utilities, consultants, private business, regulators, investors and researchers from across the region and with national and international reach.

Modeled on the Innovation Pavilion forum at the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) Annual Conference, the goal of this event is to provide a forum for sharing new ideas, enable innovators and researchers to get input from people on the front lines of providing clean water, and create enduring 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.

We are currently looking for early and growth stage companies with innovative solutions for the water industry to join us for a unique opportunity to share your vision, network and identify potential pilot sites at the Innovation Pavilion.  We will select up to 12 emerging water businesses to have the opportunity to share your innovations, get input from potential investors and customers, explore pilot opportunities and have your technology advertised to the NEWEA community of over 2100 members through conference communications.  Past participants have included BioBot, Aclarity, Cambrian, Clean Water Ops and Pelleton Renewables.

If you are a growth stage startup, looking for exposure to water industry professionals, we will provide a booth and up to 2 registrations (valued at over $1300) for you to showcase your solution if you are selected.  Please submit a brief overview of your company, explanation of your solution and its maturity, and current customer and revenue information by using the online form below.

Please submit applications by Friday, November 18th.  Accepted participants will be notified in mid-December.

If you are an established business that would like to have the opportunity to connect with NEWEA members for all 3 days of the conference, please consider our exhibit booth opportunities.
