WEFTEC 2023 – Stantec Presentation Schedule

August 30, 2023

Bringing the best of the best in water quality and treatment to connect the world to clean water

September 30-October 4, 2023
McCormick Place, Chicago essential as clean water

WEFTEC23 – actually, the 96th annual – returns to Chicago, and you can bet the Stantec team is there in full force.

Kick off your WEFTEC experience off on Saturday night at the Jammin 4 Water event. Join Art Umble and friends as they rock the night out in this very popular event organized and hosted by Water Charities Fundraising.

Did you know we are hiring 2,000 new Water team members by 2025? We will be at both the Monday Students & Young Professionals and Tuesday’s U.S. Military Veterans Career Fairs to meet and discuss joining our team.

Day in and day out, our Water team is focused on identifying innovative solutions to preserve and protect water quality, and quantity, that are both technologically available and achievable at any scale. And what better place than at WEFTEC than to share these creative answers to some of the biggest water challenges of our time with water professionals from around the world.
