There are many reasons to attend the Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport (WWETT) Show. The education courses, networking with other industry professionals and a concert with 25-cent tap beers all are great reasons to attend. But then there’s the exhibit hall. Products from more than 600 companies take up the entire 540,000 square feet of the Indiana Convention Center. This year exhibits are spilling out into the hallways.

You won’t want to miss this. Here’s an advance look at some of the vacuum trucks and components you will see in February.
