What makes WEFTEC a leading exhibition? 

With growing figures, WEFTEC has established itself as 'the place to be' when it comes to making water business, meet new business partners, and exchanging knowledge in the US water and wastewater business.

With expected more than 25,000 attendees and well over 1,000 exhibiting companies, WEFTEC 2023 in Chicago will once again feature global representation from every major organization covering all aspects of the water storage, purification, and supply industry.

Also recognized as the largest annual water quality exhibition in the world, the expansive show floor provides unparalleled access to the most cutting-edge technologies, serves as a forum for domestic and international business opportunities, and promotes invaluable peer-to-peer networking among registrants.

WEFTEC is both a tradeshow and technical conference with panel discussions and paper presentations, which makes it a great opportunity to network, forge new partnerships, and establish new relations.

Exhibit with us

Danish Export - Water Tech will follow up on the successes from the past six editions of WEFTEC and arrange the Pavilion of Denmark at the 2023 edition of WEFTEC - this time in Chicago. We have a strong cooperation with water technology alliance in the US, who is also participating in the event. 

As an exhibitor at the Pavilion of Denmark at WEFTEC 2023, you will have:

  • Great opportunity of meeting potential customers and partners
  • Great opportunity of meeting agents, representatives, and distributors from the US and the rest of North America
  • Unique exposure
  • The opportunity to network and share experiences with other Danish exhibitors at the Pavilion of Denmark
  • A turn-key and full-service stand in an attractive and modern design - save the time and arrive late as we handle the practicalities.


Why should you and your company participate?

Danish companies within the water and wastewater sector, wishing to develop existing relations with the American water sector, or wishing to gain a foothold on the US water market, will take great benefit from participating. Companies interested in establishing themselvels through an agent, representativ, or distributor will also benefit from taking part in the exhibition.

In collaboration with the Trade Counsil's Water Technology Alliance USA, we will organize a reception, B2B meetings and other events around the Pavilion of Denmark during the show days.

If there is sufficient interest among participating companies, it will be possible to:

  • Organize meetings with relevant consultants and distributors from the greater Chicago area prior to the exhibition
  • Attend a water workshop at the Water Counsil after the exhibition. The Water Counsil is inviting all participating companies from the Pavilion of Denmark to join water workshops at their Milwaukee, WI Headquarters

    USA’s equivalent to IFAT

    ”WEFTEC is where you showcase your products towards the market. The exhibition gathers everyone and everything, which makes it easy to arrange meetings where e.g., both advisor and customer participates. We are about to close an order that we worked on prior to WEFTEC too, but it was an advantage to meet during the fair where there is more time for both business and small talk.

    Pavilion of Denmark gives us more visibility because we become part of a large stand that attracts more attention. We have previously gotten an order because a customer coincidentally walked by and found Denmark interesting.”

    Michael B. Nissen, CEO, Nissen Energy

    WEFTEC increases our visibility

    “Being a smaller dedicated company, visibility towards the American market is important. WEFTEC gives us just that. And when exhibiting at Pavilion of Denmark, we benefit from collaboration and knowledge sharing between the Danish companies. All practicalities are taken care of, which makes our participation easy. We save time and hassle before, during and after the show. We are looking forward to WEFTEC 2023 in Chicago”
