Re-Branded ?Water Asset Management Conference? Heading Back to Arlington

The Water Asset Management Conference, which has its roots dating to 2001, is heading back to Arlington, Va., Dec. 2-3, 2015. The Water Asset Management Conference, formerly known as the UIM/SWIM Conference, is a partnership between the journal, UIM: Water Utility Infrastructure Management and the Sustainable Water Infrastructure Management (SWIM) Center at Virginia Tech.

The new title is more descriptive and reflective of the content as the dialogue has historically been rooted in water infrastructure asset management. In addition, a distinctive new logo has been developed that shows the intertwining relationship of water and the infrastructure needed to transport it.

The Water Asset Management Conference begins with SWIM Center meetings on Dec. 2 followed by panel discussion that kicks off the conference that afternoon. Following the panel is an awards reception at which the UIM Award and SWIM awards are bestowed.

On Dec. 3 there is a full day of focused presentations covering the latest in technology and best practices in asset management. The presentations are selected by a panel of leading professionals in the field of asset management.

Topics to be addressed include: risk assessment, data management, planning and prioritizing infrastructure investment, renewal technology and more. Concepts and strategies explored can begin to be implemented the minute you get back to your office.

One of the hallmarks of the event is the interactive dialogue among participants. The limited-seat venue is ideal for back-and-forth discussion that is missing from many industry events. CEUs are also available for attendees.

The venue is the Virginia Tech Research Center in Arlington, just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The area is host to many dining and lodging options, as well as entertainment. It is conveniently located near the Ballston Metro stop.
