StormCon is respected for being the nation’s largest conference and
exhibition of stormwater-related products, services, and technologies. Anyone
who has ever been to StormCon also knows there is much more: the sumptuous
banquets are unlike any other, and, combined with multiple networking
opportunities, make the entire event a joyful experience.
The event kicks off with keynote speaker Gloria Reuben and the opening
general session. Join us Tuesday, August 18, at 8:00 a.m. in the Platinum
Ballroom for a truly memorable opening general session hosted by AbTech. Opening
general session coffee service starts at 7:30 a.m. (hosted by Hydro
International), so don't be late.
Gloria Reuben is an accomplished actor, singer, and social activist with a
strong interest in, and devotion to, environmental issues. Ms. Reuben spends
a great deal of time working on behalf of the causes she feels strongly
compelled to support. Most recently, she participated in Speak Truth to Power, a
human rights play in South Africa in August of 2008 for the Robert F. Kennedy
Center for Justice and Human Rights (of which she is on the leadership council).
Ms. Reuben has attended the presidential conventions with The Creative Coalition
to advocate for her causes, and she is a vice chair for the board of trustees
for Waterkeeper Alliance, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s water protection and
preservation organization. She speaks across the country on behalf of HIV/AIDS,
the environment, and human rights.
Thanks to StormCon’s complementary luncheons and refreshment breaks on
Tuesday and Wednesday, attendees will have more than information to
digest. Luncheons in the Platinum Ballroom will provide a sit-down meal
and allow attendees to connect and reconnect with other professionals. There are
no workshop sessions scheduled during the luncheon time slot, so attendees can
fully focus on enjoying the food and networking opportunities. Luncheons are
hosted by AbTech and Contech respectively.
Don't miss the Gala Reception! Bring a guest! Wives, significant
others, or your colleagues are welcome to join in the festivities. Live music,
great food, passed hors d’oeuvres & chef services, carving stations, and
much more. Stylish attire is encouraged. StormTrap will host the Opening Gala
Reception Tuesday night from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Participate in interactive specialty panels Wednesday and Thursday morning.
This year mark your schedules for BMP, LID & the Highway Environment on
Wednesday at 10 a.m. and Talk Back to the EPA on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. Arrive early to secure a seat at these extremely popular events.
While perusing the exhibit hall with more than 200 booths showcasing
stormwater products and technologies, attendees can stop for refreshment breaks
from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m., providing a pick-me-up snack and a great opportunity to
meet up with colleagues. Tuesday's break is hosted by Cultec.
