Purolite Exhibits as a Gold Sponsor at the International Water Conference 2019

Purolite was proud to be a gold sponsor at the 2019 International Water Conference (IWC) that took place at the Hilton Lake Buena Vista Resort in Sunny Orlando, Florida November 10-14. The conference, hosted by the Engineer’s Society of Western Pennsylvania, was a place for researchers, practicing engineers, managers, educators, suppliers and contractors to gather and discuss relevant topics in water treatment technology. Purolite sent a full team of 10 Technical Sales Representatives and Marketing professionals to engage the conference attendees during exhibit hours.

The conference’s exhibits ran from Sunday November 10th to Tuesday, November 12th with over 90 exhibitors both indoors and out. 

To help celebrate the 80th Anniversary of IWC, Purolite attended a special Anniversary Dinner at the Wyndham Hotel and Resort in Lake Buena Vista, just across the street from the convention center. Dinner was served alongside the “Bring the Funny” Improv group as entertainment.

Purolite employees also participated in the conference through discussion papers and presentations.
