Annual Scientific Conference Scheduled for October 18-20
The WAHC is an extraordinary educational conference where aquatic industry professionals discuss, learn, and network with like-minded people. Every year, attendees proclaim how they come away with new objectives and information that directly relates to their field. WAHC 2016 ended with 410 attendees, making it the largest conference yet. It included international attendees from 13 different countries with speakers who hailed from America, Austria, Canada, Germany, and Spain.
This scientific conference is filled with seminars covering topics such as health benefits and aquatic therapy techniques, drowning prevention, facility management, public health, new technology, advanced chemistry/DBPs, advanced service concepts, and RWI prevention. Attendees can also expect pre- and post-WAHC meetings and events.
Numerous organizations, such as USA Swimming, CMAHC, Aquatic Therapy University, and Water Safety USA, conduct events surrounding the WAHC as conference attendees represent a convergence of the entire aquatic world, collaborating to learn and grow. The CMAHC will hold the second biennial conference, Vote on the Code, October 17-18, directly before the WAHC. If an organization would like to host a meeting that coincides with WAHC 2017, reach out to [email protected].
The WAHC also offers poster sessions, table top displays for sponsors and other non-profit organizations, a local insider’s tour of facilities, a welcome reception, and a closing reception with prize giveaways, including a free 2018 WAHC registration or hotel reservation.

We believe everything we do helps people live healthier lives. Whether it’s encouraging more aquatic activity, making pools safer, or keeping pools open, we believe we can make a difference. NSPF® offers products and programs that are technically sound, convenient, and beautifully designed. In 2012, we launched the Step Into Swim™ Campaign, a 10 year initiative to create one million more swimmers. In 2016, to further their mission, NSPF combined forces with Genesis, an educational leader for builders of residential pools and spas.
