Tap into The Water Council’s network at WEFTEC 2014 – Panel Discussion

To conclude Investments in Water Innovation Week, the WEDC held an informational panel discussion that detailed the efforts that they have been undertaking to make sure that the inaugural Wisconsin Innovation Pavilion at WEFTEC 2014 is a success.

The presented and discussed topics of ways to get involved with the Pavilion, best practices and strategies when attending, and answered many questions, including why it is so important to highlight the water technology cluster that exists in Wisconsin at WEFTEC. The most talked about topic was Wisconsin’s 2014 WEFTEC Look Book. The “look book” is a beneficial and efficient way to highlight each of the individual water technology companies from Wisconsin, by providing a company profile. These “look books” would then be distributed to international delegations attending WEFTEC, and potentially lead to new deals and partnerships.
