Why Attend WAHC 2020?


Reconnect with Your Colleagues

We aren’t going to let a pandemic get in the way of you reconnecting with your colleagues from around the world! There will be plenty of opportunities to spend time with long-time friends and meet new people who share your passions. 


On-Demand Education

Events typically have multiple overlapping sessions meaning you cannot physically attend two sessions at the same time. WAHC 2020 solves this problem!

With on-demand content available 24/7, you have access to 35 extraordinary educational sessions that you can view on your own time and at your own pace. All sessions will be available for 30 days after the event, giving you plenty of time to attend all of the sessions you want and earn a maximum amount of CEUs.


Continuing Education

Need to renew those CEUs? WAHC is the perfect opportunity to gain incredible education and maintain your certification. As an IACET Accredited Provider, PHTA offers CEUs for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard. Where else can you achieve over 30 hours of approved CEU education?



Attending WAHC 2020 will not only save you money on hotel, travel and food and beverage expenses, but you’ll also avoid the hassle of airport security, travel delays, and check-in lines, – all from the safety of your home. 



Less travel time means more time for you at work or with your family. Our event is the ultimate come-as-you-are experience: you’ll just need a computer and internet connection. Don’t forget to bring your favorite cup of Joe.


Attendee Growth

By removing geographical limitations, PHTA anticipates a record number of attendees from around the world, offering diverse networking opportunities and allowing you to make more business connections.


Feedback Is Easier

Virtual WAHC 2020 gives you the opportunity to provide immediate feedback. You can chat online with fellow attendees, ask questions — and even have those questions translated from your preferred language — in real-time.


Audience Engagement

WAHC 2020 allows you to maximize your personal engagement with top industry thought leaders, fellow attendees, and suppliers. This can lead to interactive Q&A sessions and discussions over social networking platforms.


Networking Made Easy

WAHC 2020 makes networking even easier than before. Instead of having to coordinate schedules to track down fellow attendees in a large convention hall, you will receive a full list of attendees in each session or lounge, making it easy to begin one-on-one chats.

Our networking rooms will facilitate discussion and create connections with you and other attendees interested in similar topics. In addition, our exhibit hall will offer information on exciting products and services, complete with live interaction between you and the exhibitors.
