The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) will co-convene with the World Plumbing Council (WPC) an International Emerging Technology Symposium, Aug. 19-20 at the O’Hare Marriott in Chicago.
The timely event will allow participants to learn how the manufacturing, engineering and trade industries devise solutions to international regulatory developments on some of the following topics:
• Water, Sanitation and Health
• Water and Energy Efficiency
• Water Reuse
• Solar and Other Renewable Energies
• Water Quality
• Fat, Oil and Grease Discharges

Sponsorship and support for the event is growing. Important industry organizations that have joined IAPMO and the WPC for this special event include: Sloan Valve Company, the American Society of Sanitary Engineering (ASSE) and The Institute of Plumbing Australia Inc. (IPA).
“This symposium represents an exciting opportunity to highlight how our industry creates and adapts to emerging technologies,” said IAPMO Executive Director GP Russ Chaney. “The event promises to be tremendously informative, as we trust a great many unique organizations will seize the opportunity by providing their most highly-qualified experts as presenters and panelists.”
“We have kept the cost of registration low at $295 for both days (includes breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack) in order to encourage international participation,” according to Maria Sol Alba, IAPMO Training Client Services supervisor. “Hotel reservations should be made directly with the Marriott by mentioning the IAPMO event, with a special room rate of $129 per night.”
