World Water-Tech

The World Water-Tech North America summit is where corporate investors, venture capital investors, utilities, engineering consultancies and technology companies will come together to identify new technologies and business models that have the potential to address global water demand, and to forge the partnerships that will accelerate their implementation.

This is the most important networking summit for anyone looking to build a sustainable business in the water technology industry.  Panel discussions are interspersed with roundtable discussion groups and 1-1 meetings to maximise the opportunities for delegates to meet, share ideas and form new business relationships with international stakeholders.

40 international water industry experts will lead discussion on the key issues facing the sector:

    • Fast-tracking adoption – What can we learn from global hubs for water innovation?
    • Which solutions and business models make most commercial sense for today’s leading utilities?
    • How can the industry use the data gathered from smart water networks in a truly game-changing way?
    • As water becomes increasingly stressed in urban communities, are distributed wastewater treatment plants the answer?
    • Where are the greatest opportunities in industrial wastewater treatment and re-use?
    • Will the next wave of innovation be in membranes/chemicals/ polymers – or in doing more with what we already have?
    • If water requires patient money – where are the patient investors to be found?
