Organizers of the World Aquatic Health Conference invite industry pros to save the date for this year’s event: October 10-12 at the Charleston Marriott in Charleston, S.C.
The WAHC is an educational conference designed to help aquatic industry professionals discuss, learn and network with like-minded people. Each year, attendees report having gained new information and valuable connections that directly benefit their field of work.
WAHC 2017 was NSPF’s largest conference in history, with 420 attendees representing 12 countries and with speakers hailing from America, Canada, Israel and the United Kingdom.
This scientific conference is filled with seminars covering a variety of topics, such as health benefits and aquatic therapy techniques, drowning prevention, facility management, public health, new technology, advanced chemistry, advanced service concepts and the Model Aquatic Health Code. Attendees also enjoy pre- and post-WAHC meetings and events.
Numerous organizations, such as USA Swimming, Aquatic Therapy University and Water Safety USA, choose to conduct events surrounding the WAHC, as conference attendees represent the convergence of the entire aquatic world collaborating to learn and grow.
The WAHC also offers poster presentations, tabletop displays for sponsors and non-profit organizations, an insider’s tour of local facilities, a welcome reception and a closing reception with prize giveaways, including a complimentary 2019 WAHC registration or booking at the WAHC host hotel.
The National Swimming Pool Foundation is the host of the WAHC, and the conference team is once again at work to create a memorable and educational experience for all.
The Call for Papers is in effect until February 2, 2018, for all parties interested in speaking at the WAHC 2018.
