What Happened at GWS 2015

The Global Water Summit is the flagship water industry event of the year. Attracting high-level executives from industry, municipalities and international water companies, the Global Water Summit gives you the opportunity to connect with hard-to-reach industry insiders that will not attend any other water event. We are focused on delivering a conference that will help you grow your business – connecting you with the right people and offering crucial insight into the future of the water business.

The theme for 2015, The Water Value Revolution, set out to determine water’s key role in the future of sustainable economic growth. The event brought top water leaders together to share their water management insights and to point the way towards making water an economic value rather than a limitation on operations, we laid the ground work for revolutionising the role of water in the global economy.

Every year the Summit promises an excellent return on investment with a range of progressive and stimulating sessions. Formats include inspirational plenary talks, dedicated networking roundtables, pre-arranged one-to-one networking, break-out sessions and workshops.

Testimonials for GWS Athens, April 2015

"This is one of the most important conferences to us since we have the chance to talk to and educate decision makers on a high level. Technology choice often makes a big difference and needs to be evaluated early in Master Plans, not solely by consultants and late in the design process. " — Harald Kleiven, Vice President of Business Development, Cambi AS
"Fantastic: excellent level of conversation, niche summit out of the ordinary". — Adam Lovell, Executive Director, Water Services Association of Australia
"GWS has its unique convening power to gather utilities and industry leaders. Good place to meet partners and keep abreast of industry trends." — Xueyi Liao, Industry Development Executive, PUB Singapore
"As always, this is a brilliant opportunity to meet so many market participants in one venue". — Dirk Wittenberg, General Manager, Remondis Aqua International GmbH
"Amazing — I know of no other conference which allows a Finance person to attend and get so much benefit. Most water conferences are technical and don't appeal to Finance people. Thank you" — Ross Hughes, CFO, Water Corporation of Western Australia
"An experience not to be missed by any stakeholder in the water and sanitation sector"  — Eugene Pam, National President, Nigerian Water Supply Association
"Excellent opportunity to make new business and networking with decision makers" — Alejandro Garza, CEO, Atlatec SA de CV
