The West Virginia Water Well Drillers Association is a nonprofit trade association focused on the protection of ground water and the advancement of the industry from construction, products and science.
2023 SPRING CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION
The West Virginia Water Well Drillers Association is opening registration for the single-day conference. After discussing changes to the schedule last year, we are thrilled to try the new ideas.
Exhibitors, make plans to join us and setup that morning, exhibit mid-morning to early afternoon and then teardown and head home in the same afternoon. There are additional setup times for the day before (Monday, 4/10) from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM if you would like more than three hours to setup that are provided on Tuesday morning.
Attendees and associated participants, we are looking forward to accommodating requests to have education in the morning, dedicated exhibit hall hours and buffet lunch and then additional education in the afternoon. This year there will only be a single option for classes though, we look forward to implementing a second option in 2024.
