In a letter to the waterjetting community and its members, the Waterject Technology Association (WJTA) announced the cancellation of its 2021 WJTA Conference & Expo.

The letter, sent Aug. 25 and signed by Bill Gaff, WJTA chairman and Bill McClister, WJTA president reads:

The WJTA leadership and administrative staff have continued to monitor the recent outbreaks of COVID-19 and impacts for our members and communities.

Based on the spread of COVID delta variant, local public health restrictions, and feedback from the industry and exhibitors, the WJTA Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2021 WJTA Conference & Expo scheduled for October 2021 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Without question, our primary concern is ensuring the safety of participants. This decision is difficult, however, the current spread of COVID and uncertain projections for the fall make it impossible to hold an October event that is both safe and productive for participants.

Following the successful 2019 Conference & Expo’s increased attendance, expanded educational opportunities and positive feedback and the cancellation of WJTA 2020, the 2021 WJTA Conference & Expo was expected to be one of our best events.

We are excited to announce the 2022 WJTA Conference & Expo will be held November 2-3 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The 2022 Conference & Expo will include technical whitepapers planned for 2021, as well as expanded educational and networking opportunities.

Those with questions and more information on the cancelation and move to 2022, can contact Peter Wright at wrightp@wjta.org or 314-241-1445.
