Ontario, Calif. — Preparations are already underway to ensure that the 2014 International Emerging Technology Symposium (ETS), to be held April23-24, 2014, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va., is the most comprehensive and informative event since the ETS debuted in 2008.
An unprecedented number of organizations, representing the foremost leaders in the plumbing and mechanical industries, have signed on to present the symposium as co-conveners. They are: the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®), the World Plumbing Council (WPC), the American Society of Plumbing Engineers(ASPE), the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA), the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National Association (PHCC), the Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI), the United Association (UA), and the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH).
“The participation of such a diverse and widely respected group of organizations in the planning and presentation of this fourth International Emerging Technology Symposium will certainly make it the most important plumbing and mechanical event in North America in 2014,” said IAPMOCEO GP Russ Chaney. “IAPMO is honored to be part of what will no doubt be an historic forum for innovation.”
Building upon a highly successful and universally acclaimed formula refined during three previous symposiums (Chicago, 2008; Ontario, Calif., 2010; Washington, D.C., 2012), the event will gather plumbers, contractors, engineers, manufacturers, and water efficiency experts to introduce new technologies for the plumbing and mechanical industries, and discuss how policy initiatives can drive the introduction of these technologies to market and advance the cause of water and energy efficiency. The ETS is designed to provide a portal for the host organizations’ partners in the manufacturing, engineering and trade industries to display and demonstrate their innovative solutions to legislative and regulatory developments that often alter industry landscapes.
