About the Event

The WASDA Fall Meeting & Partnership Forum (November 8 – 10, 2021) includes committee forums, contact table appointments, and several opportunities for networking and building meaningful connections. Committee forums are the best opportunity for distributors and manufacturers in the underground water, sanitary, and storm sewer industry to meet and discuss trends, critical issues facing the industry, and more. Members also have the chance to enjoy a relaxed, informal atmosphere during the welcome reception to catch up with fellow members and spot some new faces in the WASDA crowd.

Contact Table Sessions

The Partnership Forum allows member companies the opportunity to schedule “one-on-one” time with existing and potential customers and vendors, which are called “Contact Table Sessions.” Both Distributor and Associate members are responsible for scheduling appointments on their own. Distributor companies will host 15-minute appointments at their tables. Associate members will move throughout the ballroom to conduct meetings. Appointments can be double or triple booked in advance if both parties agree.
