“Excellent business opportunities and strong educational offerings really brought people out in all sectors of our membership,” said Kevin McCray, NGWA chief executive officer. “In case after case, exhibiting manufacturers said they had a very good expo. Many of the workshops were packed, which is another good sign for the ground water industry.”

Highlights include:

  • The total attendance was up two per cent from a year ago, with 291 Canadians in attendance.
  • Suppliers in attendance increased a whopping 12 per cent, followed by scientists and engineers, who were up four per cent over 2011.
  • The number of water well system contractors increased nearly two per cent at 1,810.
  • Manufacturers attending were up slightly more than one per cent at 1,300.

After three consecutive years in Las Vegas, the NGWA Groundwater Expo will be held next December in Nashville’s new Music City Center. The $623-million downtown convention center is the length of more than a dozen football fields. At its 1.2 million square feet of total space, it’s among the largest convention centers in the South.

“Nashville is really pulling out the stops, and we expect the 2013 Expo to be a great one in one of America’s great cities with some of the newest facilities available,” McCray said.
