Vendor Information

If you haven’t attended our event in the past, what can you expect? We are planning on 350-500 people attending. Because our event is being co-sponsored by MeWEA we believe there will many more wastewater operators in attendance this year. Currently we have 12 vendors registered to attend. Most vendors are renting tents directly from New England Tent and Awning (located within Brunswick Landing 111 Orion St Brunswick, Maine www.netentandawning.com or 207-725-2322). Some vendors will be offering snacks, an assortment of beverages and ice cream for all attendees at their tents. Some vendors are planning interactive demonstrations at their tents. There is no cost for the assigned space if you would like to erect a tent. PRE-REGISTATION TO ERECT A TENT AND BE ASSIGNED A SPOT IS REQUIRED. (Please call MWUA office to reserve your space on a first come first served basis.)

Setup of tents by New England Tent and Awning for all vendors will be setup on August 11th. New England Tent and Awning also provides tables and chairs for rental if you want them within your tents.

We will be supplying outside toilets (porta pottys). At 8:00 AM we will start the first of 2 one-hour training classes. Both classes will be receiving either 2- DEP or BLWSO TCH’s for attending certificates of training will be emailed. At 10:00 AM the second class will end and we will offer grilled bratwurst that are sponsored by Williamson Pump and Motor. At 10:15 we will start the live water main tapping competition and cornhole tournament (registration for the tournament is day of the outing). New England Water Works Association is sending up a team that will demonstrate the event called Hydrant Hysteria.
Lunch will be served at approximately 12:30 PM. The Training and Program Committee decided to have a pig roast this year. We will also offer steaks, burgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers. Meal tickets can be picked up at the MWUA registration table. You may also register for the cornhole tournament at the meal ticket table. You will be assigned to a two-person team.
