This year we want to take it one step further, to explore how the connections at the edges of the sector can give us fresh perspective on the roadblocks to growth. In our post-physical world, water management no longer lives in isolation. The digital revolution means that utility business models are evolving. Data is empowering the customer and the developing world, disrupting the traditional dynamics of the water industry. Meanwhile, the age of the ‘smart’ and ‘liveable’ city has made water an intimate bedfellow with other environmental services such as waste and energy.
New questions are being asked of the world of water:
This year in Madrid, we will explore how intelligent synergies blending finance and technology can deliver solutions for both industries and utilities, from Latin America to China. By unpacking these issues now together, we can ensure that water has its place in the vanguard of the fourth industrial revolution.
Forge a new future for water with us at the Marriott Auditorium Hotel in Madrid on 24-25 April 2017.
Attendees enjoy over five hours of dedicated one-to-one meeting time and booking meetings is easy via the Global Water Summit. Early booking is essential to guarantee you meet the people you need to meet.

“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.”
“As always, it attracted top level people from a broad range of companies and municipalities. I came away with enough ideas and contacts to keep me busy for many months.”
“An excellent forum to address global topics. An outstanding networking opportunity.”
“As always, this is a brilliant opportunity to meet so many market participants in one venue.”
“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.”
“After 6 years attending the Global Water Summit, it has become an extraordinary opportunity to say hello to many friends who at the same time are potential partners, competitors and/or clients. I also can get updated of the trends in the global water market.”
“A great opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new players in the industry with interesting business models and challenges. Basically an ideal networking arena.”
“Over 10 years GWI has kept, unlike other events, its unique character and overall good value for money”
