NC AWWA-WEA does NOT contract with a 3rd party to make hotel arrangements for Annual Conference attendees. All attendees must contact the hotel of their choice to make room reservations. If you are contacted by someone claiming to represent NC AWWA-WEA and they offer to make your hotel, or any other conference arrangements, please call the NC AWWA-WEA office immediately at (919) 784-9030 to report the incident.



Exhibit Hall

The link for online exhibitor registration was posted on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 10:00 AM.





Important Exhibitor Documents

We are going to liven up the Exhibit Hall this year by introducing a baseball themed event with ballpark themed contests, a “HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK” reception on Monday evening, stage, music, great food and just maybe celebrity appearances. Check out the attached map for a new layout designed to distribute attendee participation throughout the hall.

We have revised the education schedule to allow open time during each day when no classes will be offered and attendees will be encouraged to visit the exhibit hall. As always, activities designed to draw attendees to the hall include 5S induction, award programs, socials, breaks, and drawings.

Each 10’ x 10’ booth is available at a price of $1,200. The exhibit hall is located in the Raleigh Convention Center at 500 South Salisbury St., Raleigh, NC 27601. We will have 163 booths for sale.


Tentative Schedule for the Exhibit Hall
Sunday: 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm with a social hour and refreshments being served from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Monday: 9:00 am - 7:00 pm, serving morning coffee, lunch, snacks and evening gala social hour
Tuesday: 7:30 am - 1:20 pm serving morning coffee and lunch.

The Operations Challenge teams will have 4 arenas for competition in the back of the hall and the Pipe Tapping teams will have competitions going on in the front. On Monday, our designated “Operators Day”, plant and collection/distribution system operators will be encouraged to visit the exhibit hall and we hope you will keep these operators in mind as you plan your exhibit.

The Annual Conference Golf Tournament is on Sunday, November 12th at the Lochmere Golf Club in Cary. Online registration will be available for the golf tournament later this summer.

We appreciate your continued support of NC AWWA-WEA and look forward to seeing you at the Annual Conference in Raleigh. Further details of all conference activities will be posted online as they are finalized and in the Annual Conference brochure. If you have any questions, please contact Marianne Keser at or (919)784-9030, Ext. 1003.
