  ARCSA's 11th Annual Conference

Our 2015 Conference will focus on rainwater catchment for uses beyond the garden as well as using water supplies wisely. We will look at how rainwater catchment is one solution to mitigating drought and decentralizing stormwater pollution.

Colin Frayne of Association of Water Technologies is the keynote speaker for this year's event. Mr. Frayne has a great depth of experience with reusing water, water management, and water shortages around the world. 


Session Topics

Other topics will include: Performance-Based Water Conservation with WERS, Codes and Regulations, Potable Water Standards, Rainwater for Cooling Tower Make-up Water, Home Depot's Dedication or Rainwater Catchment, and Commercial Level Raingardens. In addition, attendees will hear the results of several research projects involving rainwater catchment.


ARCSA Social

Last year's conference attendees requested opportunities for networking -- we heard you! Thanks to a sponsorship by RainHarvesting Supplies Inc., the 2015 Conference will feature an ARCSA Social at CafĂ© Sevilla on Monday, November 9 from 6 - 8 pm. The ARCSA Social is included in your registration and/or you may purchase additional individual tickets. Tickets include a drink, appetizers, and plenty of time to get to know your fellow rainwater harvesters.


Irrigation Association

ARCSA will continue our relationship with the Irrigation Association (IA) and provide attendees ARCSA's educational rainwater sessions, IA's educational irrigation sessions, the IA's Gala on Tuesday night as well as access to the irrigation/rainwater/pond exhibition. California has proven to be IA's best and biggest shows and they are looking forward to co-locating with ARCSA again this year in Long Beach, California. With water in the West at a premium, more attendees than ever will be looking for new and better ways to collect and retain water, so don't miss the EXPO opportunity.  Visit the Irrigation Association - Irrigation Show & Education Conference site now.

ARCSA/IA EXPO Rainwater Pavilion

The EXPO co-location will be similar to last year's with a separate ARCSA conference and a Rainwater Pavilion on the show floor exclusively set aside for ARCSA member exhibitors so they are easy to find. ARCSA members will again be offered the same exhibitor booth pricing as IA members. This will save you $2,800 for each 10' x 10' booth purchased. Booth selection has already started for 2015 and booths in the ARCSA Rainwater Pavilion are on a first-come, first-serve basis. All they need is your booth contract and a 50% deposit. 

Want to check out the show floor? Here's the interactive floor plan.

Don't forget that in addition to the IA member price, you can save money when you purchase multiple booths.

  • Save an additional 2% when you reserve between 2 and 5 booth spaces.
  • Save an additional 4% when you reserve 6 or more booth spaces.

Get more details about the upcoming show and exhibitor discounts by reading our booth space contract, exhibitor prospectus and terms and conditions.
