The American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA) is pleased to announce an extension of the agreement with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to partner in hosting the annual Membrane Technology Conference and Exposition (MTC) through 2020. Initiated in 2012, this collaboration allowed AMTA and AWWA to combine their annual membrane conferences into one pinnacle event, giving members and the industry a singular venue to showcase outstanding technical programs and vendor exhibit hall.
The goal of the MTC is to provide a specialized venue that promotes the exchange of membrane expertise and innovation, research and development, regulatory developments and site experience. The MTC also provides a focused networking opportunity for industry peers, allowing system owners and operators the opportunity to share case studies and interact with others who face similar day to day operational challenges.
The annual MTC is held each year between February and April with recent coast to coast venues in Las Vegas, NV, Orlando, FL, San Antonio, TX and Glendale, AZ. The 2016 MTC will be held in San Antonio, TX February 1-5. The joint committee is reviewing more than 200 abstracts submitted for the event and over 1,000 industry professionals and students are expected to enjoy peer reviewed papers and posters, plant tours, pre-conference workshops and a variety of networking events. The MTC continues to attract an extensive international audience with participants expected from over 31 countries. Up to 100 Vendors will be exhibiting their membrane related products and services and opportunities are still available for interested companies. Attendees are encouraged to register now to take advantage of early registration and hotel discounts.
Securing an extension of this successful partnership allows both AMTA and AWWA to effectively plan upcoming programs and ensure the MTC continues to be the industry’s premier membrane technical conference.
The American Membrane Technology Association’s mission is to promote, advocate and advance the understanding and application of membrane technology to create safe, affordable and reliable water supplies, and to treat municipal, industrial, agricultural and waste waters for beneficial use. AMTA provides broad opportunities for the exchange of technical, operational and financial information among individuals and organizations interested in membrane technologies. As the leading advocate of membrane processes in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America, AMTA is a strong voice for regulatory and legislative reforms essential to the understanding, acceptance and utilization of membrane technologies.
