DENVER -- The American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) announced today an agreement to co-host a United States pavilion at the Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) April 21-23, 2015 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. WETEX is an international show focusing on the areas of water conservation, saving natural resources and building a sustainable environment.
AWWA, the world’s oldest and largest water association, and ITA have contracted with Kallman Worldwide Inc. to manage the United States pavilion at WETEX for U.S.-based exhibitors looking to expand their businesses in the international water sector.

The Department of Commerce recently presented AWWA with the award to support projects aimed at increasing U.S. exports, creating jobs and strengthening America’s global competitiveness.
“Both AWWA and ITA are eagerly anticipating a presence at 2015’s WETEX in a co-hosted United States pavilion,” said AWWA Chief Executive Officer David LaFrance. “We are striving to reach the international water sector, and this partnership with ITA and the award funds provided to us by the U.S. Department of Commerce are helping us to accomplish that goal.”
