2020 BCWWA Virtual Conference & Trade Show @ Online
Nov 3 @ 8:00 am – Nov 4 @ 4:00 pm

The BCWWA Annual Conference & Trade Show is British Columbia’s premier water and wastewater industry event, featuring one of the largest trade shows of its kind in western Canada. Come experience exciting professional development and networking opportunities for everyone in the water industry across BC and the Yukon. This year, due to the ongoing health crisis and meeting size limitations, the conference has been converted to a virtual platform.

“Blue~Black~Grey? What if it was all just water?” @ online
Nov 10 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Graytec Global is the banner representing the Graytec companies – Sweden’s Graytec AB and Graytec USA.

Graytec AB invented the Blue Circle System at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg as a response to increasing droughts and worsening quality of waters throughout the world.

The Blue Circle System conserves up to 60% of the water used within a home while also saving up to 80% off the energy used to heat waters used in bathrooms. This is done by piping greywater used in bathtubs, showers, and bathroom sinks into our onsite system that recycles greywater to potable quality before circulating that water into those same showers, bathtubs and bathroom sinks for direct reuse by its occupants.

Graytec AB was founded in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2016, where four of its five co-owners live.

Graytec AB’s successfully tested prototype was developed and launched at Chalmers University of Technology’s HSB Living Lab, which is also located in Gothenburg.

Graytec USA was founded in 2019 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The University of Arizona invited Graytec USA to join its incubator that same year. Luke Jackson is the sole American representing the Graytec companies.

2020 Mega-Conference @ online
Nov 16 – Nov 18 all-day

Obviously, a virtual conference is different from holding the Mega-Conference as an in-person event, but it does offer certain advantages. For one thing, travel and lodging are eliminated, saving you time and money. Second, all sessions will be recorded, and will be available to all conference registrants through December 31, 2020. So if you miss a session you wanted to attend, you can still attend the course when it is convenient for you! Finally, we are planning some social events and online opportunities for you to connect with your colleagues attending the event.

In addition to the above reasons to participate in the 2020 Virtual Onsite Wastewater Mega-Conference, you will benefit from attending in the following ways:

Something for everyone. Installers…pumpers…service providers…regulators…engineers…soil scientists… designers…educators…. Regardless of your role in the onsite wastewater profession, you will find lots of useful learning opportunities:

Useful ideas. Through education sessions, and meetings with many of the industry’s most progressive and innovative companies in the exhibit hall, you can get new ideas for building your existing business.

Identify ways to expand your business. Increasing water shortages, skyrocketing costs to build and maintain central sewer infrastructure, and a wide range of applications are creating new markets for onsite wastewater. The Mega-Conference is an ideal place for you to identify new opportunities for your company to grow and expand.

Bigger really is better. While size doesn’t always matter, having lots of choices does. Having such a wide range of options for meeting your education needs is another reason to attend the Mega-Conference.

You can fulfill your continuing education requirements. In many states, the conference curriculum will qualify for credit hours in licensing or professional certification programs. We are working to secure approval for continuing education credit from all states which license or certify installers, service providers, inspectors and designers.

It’s an investment in you and your organization. If you get one good idea which translates into more business or a better way to do things, you will more than justify your cost of attending. Invest in yourself and your organization.
