Oct. 4-6 in Las Vegas
Dear WaterSmart Innovations Community,
We are excited to announce that the 14th annual WaterSmart Innovations Conference and Exposition (WSI) is set for Oct. 4-6, 2022, at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas. Together with our many key partners, we look forward to bringing together the very best experts for the world’s largest and most respected conference on urban water efficiency.
As climate change and drought conditions amplify, water supply conditions have become extremely challenging, particularly in the western United States. Despite already having one of the most successful conservation programs in the world, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is currently implementing unprecedented additional conservation measures to address the first-ever shortage declaration on the Colorado River, our primary source of water. As you might imagine, these programs require extraordinary focus and optimization of SNWA staff resources.
To focus all its resources on implementing unprecedented conservation measures and expanded drought management programs, SNWA is partnering with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to present WSI. Be assured that SNWA will remain engaged in the conference planning and the event itself, working closely with AWWA and all our partners. Together, we anticipate a seamless transition with AWWA for partners, exhibitors and attendees, and we look forward to continuing the culture and values of WSI that are so integral to the event’s success.
SNWA and AWWA deeply value WSI’s many important partners and sponsors. Your involvement is what makes WSI the success it has become. With your support, WSI will continue to reflect the interests of a broad coalition of stakeholders from inside and beyond the water sector. This new partnership honors WSI’s values and leverages AWWA’s world-class conference expertise to a carry forward WSI’s legacy of being THE gathering place for anyone interested in urban water efficiency issues.
In the coming months, you’ll notice a few differences. Watch your inbox for AWWA’s communication regarding WSI presentation proposals, exhibit opportunities, and registration. In the meantime, if you have questions, please contact April DeBaker or Savannah Moore.
Whether it’s your first visit or one of many, we look forward to welcoming you to southern Nevada in October.
Conservation Manager, Southern Nevada Water Authority
