The Water Innovations Alliance Foundation is proud to announce the 2014 Sustainable Manufacturer & Water 2.0 Conference May 20-22, 2014.  The conference will be held at Northern Illinois University in Naperville (Chicago), Illinois.


This three-day conference and tabletop exhibit is dedicated to answering the question, “How do I make my manufacturing operation more sustainable?” Featuring an array of high-quality educational and networking opportunities to sharpen leadership, management, and technical know-how; it will bring all the elements a manufacturer needs to know in order to adopt or enhance sustainable practices and efficient water manufacturing technologies together, in one location, at one time.

The 2014 Sustainable Manufacturer & Water 2.0 Conference will feature prominent speakers from industry, government, finance and academia. The Conference will address state-of-the-art innovative sustainable manufacturing solutions and leading-edge efficient water manufacturing processes.

The Sustainable Manufacturer & Water 2.0 Conference is designed for owners, plant managers, corporate executives, facilities & EHS managers, engineers, and all others who play a role in making their company’s processes, facilities, operation, and products more sustainable and profitable.

“The opportunity to join the Sustainable Manufacturer Conference with the Water 2.0 event was an easy decision because it delivers manufacturers a complete event to address how to run their operations more efficiently and profitably.  From demand response to intelligent industrial water usage, this event is designed to deliver manufacturing professionals a comprehensive overview of sustainable strategies and an integrated approach.  The Sustainable Manufacturer Network, a technical affiliate of the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), looks forward to a great partnership with the Water Innovations Alliance Foundation,” said Ed Youdell, President & CEO of FMA.

We are currently recruiting speakers for our event.  If you are interested, then please contact Vincent Caprio or 203-733-1949.
