It was a record-breaking year at the 36th Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport (WWETT) Show in Indianapolis last week.

This year the show moved back to its original schedule of Education Day on Wednesday and the show floor open Thursday through Saturday. The Indiana Convention Center was packed with a record number of 599 exhibitors with 4,375 staff (up from 4,339 in 2015).

“It was one of our best years here,” says Debi Spear with Pressure Lift Corporation. “We were packed in here on the first day and it just continued to be strong the rest of the week.”

The event drew 10,031 attendees (up from 9,474 in 2015) from 4,336 companies — up from last year’s total of 4,196. It marked the first time since 2008 that attendance has been over 10,000.

Cody Warner with Deep Trekker says his company sold several of its underwater camera units at the show.

“It was a wonderful show for us,” he says. “A very successful first year here for us.”

It was also the first year of the WWETT Kickoff Event at Lucas Oil Stadium on Wednesday and Thursday. Over 3,000 attendees checked out the event, which had the COLE Pub truck in the middle of the field, surrounded by exhibitors. Attendees were able to enjoy some cold beverages and explore the field and take photos.
