WAHC 2017: Live Streaming

WAHC Will Offer Virtual Sessions to Interested Consumers 

Are you interested in attending the 14th Annual World Aquatic Health™ Conference but are stuck at home because your boss didn’t approve of the expense? Or maybe it is just too far away in Denver, CO? Well as much as we would prefer to see your beautiful face down in the Mountain High City, we understand your dilemma and are pleased to offer you a virtual experience! 

On October 18-20, you will be able to live stream two WAHC tracks for a total of 9 sessions on either your computer or mobile device. This is a great opportunity for you or your team! Feel free to show the sessions in your conference room where everyone can watch and participate.

WAHC Live Stream Tickets

To virtually attend the WAHC, you have two options. Option one—you’re interested in attending both days, option two—you’re only interested in attending one day. If you would like a ticket for both days you can grab a pass for $100; if you would prefer to only purchase one day of streaming, it will be $75. Each day of streaming will focus on one track, 4-5 sessions each day. Purchase a two-day ticket for both days October 19-20 now: https://thewahc.org/ticket/wahc-livestream-registration-both-days.
