LISLE, Ill. — Event organizers said a high level of reported satisfaction at WQA Aquatech USA in early April reflects an industry growing with new technology and the promise of larger economic opportunity ahead, according to a press release.

“The buzz on the floor spoke of a growing vibrancy in our industry and hope surrounding the national economy,” said Dave Haataja, executive director of WQA. “With new networking events and the opportunity to experience coming technologies, those who took part left prepared to recharge their businesses back home.”

WQA Aquatech USA 2013 was held in Indianapolis, Ind. during the first week of April.

According to a post-convention survey of attendees and exhibitors, more than 95 percent felt “satisfied” or “very satisfied,” noted the release.

“As a first-time attendee, I thought the show is a tour de force of water treatment and water quality info and technology,” said Allen P. Rathey, president of the Health House Institute, based in Idaho. “I was fascinated and impressed by the resources — both technological and educational – offered to protect and improve the public water supply.”
