Bluetech Water Summit – Cure for The Common Conference

Was this you at the last conference you attended. No need for coffee at this summit.

Where Great Ideas Are Growing

Was the last conference you attended a one-day celebration of the mundane, the ordinary, the obvious and the overlooked? Did attendees send tweets like this one? @H2oWtr #conf. Next year cut conf hours from  8-5  to 8 – 8:15.  4 months ago The BlueTech Valley Water Summit on March 5th in Fresno, California promises to be lots more exciting than conferences you have attended before. Have you seen the show Shark Tank? This year at the BlueTech Valley Water Summit they have their own version. It’s called The Latest and Greatest – Technology Pitch Session. Attendees will hear six innovative water technology companies pitch their technology to an industry expert panel and you get to vote for your favorite. It is your chance to contribute to change in the industry just by attending and voting. When was the last time change was so easy?
