The conference is held by the Water Environment Federation in cooperation with the Ohio Water Environment Association and The Water Research Foundation (WRF).

This conference will once again bring together environmental professionals from around the world for a showcase on odors and air pollutants management. The biennial Odor Conference is designed to educate practitioners, facility owners, operators, researchers, and public administrators about current odor issues, including regulatory requirements and methods for analyzing problems and finding solutions.

Mobile Sessions

This will be the second mobile session held at WEF’s Odors and Air Pollutants conference. Mobile sessions allow WEF to bring attendees to selected booths for technical and educational presentations combined with equipment or hands-on visuals. This session is open to any exhibitor who can address the subject matter and is intended to be an interactive, show-and-tell presentation.

These sessions are meant to be the anti-PowerPoint learning opportunity.  The intent is to provide a hands-on experience focusing on face-to-face exchanges between vendors, operators, and engineers.  The presenters should highlight, from their perspective, what works and doesn’t work for the individual technology they are describing.

The presentation must be generic and cannot have vendor specifics, but presenters are encouraged to use the props and product samples within their exhibition booth to make technical points. These presentations are technology discussions, not product or proprietary pitches.  Presentations will be scrutinized for overt marketing during draft presentation review.

The submission portal will be open from Wednesday, November 13 through Thursday, December 5; selected presenters will be notified in mid-January 2020. See the below flyer for further information.

In case of a venue evacuation, agree where you will meet up. Call for help if your buddy doesn’t meet up at the agreed location within a reasonable amount of time.
