IWPC 2020 Rescheduled for April 19-21, 2021
Springfield Crowne Plaza, Springfield, IL

Based on public health recommendations to limit large gatherings, we have decided to cancel IWPC 2020.  This was a difficult decision, but we believe it is the best way to protect the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, and exhibitors. Given the speculative nature of when this crisis may be over, and the domino effect on everyones schedules, IWPC 2020 will not be rescheduled. Next years IWPC 2021 (April 19-21, 2021) was already on the books with planning set to start in August 2020, a mere four months away.

IWPC 2020 was on track to be Illinois best water resource and recovery conference and we will do everything we can to provide the same valuable conference next year! We want to thank all our exhibitors and attendees for their continued patience and support as we work through transitioning to the 2021 conference.

We will provide more information as it becomes available but initial answers can be found by clicking the link below. As arrangements are still a work in progress, we expect quite a few inquiries. Your patience is appreciated as we try to respond as quickly as possible. Please understand that it may take some time to solidify the necessary details so we can respond with the most up-to-date information.


This is IWEA.
