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.
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.
Fantastic: excellent level of conversation, niche summit out of the ordinary.
GWS has its unique convening power to gather utilities and industry leaders. Good place to meet partners and keep abreast of industry trends.
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.
An experience not to be missed by any stakeholder in the water and sanitation sector.
Excellent opportunity to make new business and networking with decision makers.
The Global Water Summit is for those individuals who want to make a difference – to get involved, to join the debate and get things done. Whichever part of the industry you’re in, you’ll find you’re in the right place to meet more key water leaders than you ever thought possible.
