USSD 2017 Annual Conference and Exhibition

It’s a Small World: Managing Our Water Resources

April 3-7, 2017
Anaheim Convention Center
Anaheim, California, UnitedStates

The 2017 USSD Conference Theme is It’s a Small World: Managing Our Water Resources. The theme plays into the Conference venue in Anaheim, just blocks away from Disneyland, but more importantly, the theme points to how the world is connected to a finite amount of water resources, especially fresh water. With so many interconnected competing interests for our limited water resources, collaboration from a diverse population is a necessity. 

Hatch experts will be at the USSD 2017 Annual Conference and Exhibition at Booth #8. Let's talk!
