StormCon 2023 and Stormwater Solutions Magazine Together at Last!

Episode 005: “We were a relatively small organization, about 150 of us. Now there’s over 700 of us and we’re part of the largest b2b media company in the United States. And so what it comes down to is there’s just a lot of different resources we can draw on now where we may have not had those previously,” explains Larry Scott, industry icon currently working in events and projects for Stormwater Solutions Magazine. Today, Larry and Katie Johns, managing editor of Stormwater Solutions and Water Quality Products, join host Ty to talk about upcoming StormCon2023 and the merging of Storm Water Solutions and Stormwater magazines into Stormwater Solutions.

StormCon 2023 is going to be in Dallas, TX from August 29th to the 31st. There will be exhibitors, keynote speakers, product demonstrations, top industry leaders, and fun activities as well as many educational opportunities including an erosion control track. Since Storm Water Solutions  was acquired by Endeavor Business Media in April and merged to become Stormwater Solutions Magazine, they have seen an increase in audience size. Now that they have more resources available, StormCon should be more successful than ever.

If you have an interest in stormwater management, civil engineering, and green infrastructure, there are tons of free educational resources available through Stormwater Solutions Magazine. Learn more about digitally accessible free resources and the plans for StormCon 2023. 

Quotes:

  • “For this year’s event, we’re expecting our numbers to grow even more like you said. We’re in Dallas, it’ll be August 29th to the 31st. For content this year, which is kind of what I’ll be working on, we’ve added erosion control as a track, because we do want to be a resource for both stormwater and erosion control. And I know we’re hoping to set up some tours and fun events and working on getting our keynote speakers. So we’re still very much in the planning phase. The call for abstracts is open right now. But we’re expecting it to grow on the successes of last year.” (8:44-9:20 | Katie) 
  • “One of the great things that Stormwater Solutions was able to bring to the table, unlike Stormwater Magazine, is our audience.” (10:40-10:47 | Larry)
