SAVE THE DATE: WWIS 2014 to be held in London, March 10-12
Following the resounding success of the second World Water-Tech Investment Summit 2013, the summit is now recognised as one of the most important networking meetings for the global water industry.
This global event provides a forum for sharing and developing big game-changing ideas for the water industry. This is where corporate investors, venture capital investors, utilities, engineering consultancies and technology companies 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.
Highlights of the 2013 Summit
The 2013 World Water-Tech Investment Summit brought together 210 senior executives from the international water industry. 25 countries were represented at the summit, with approximately 50% delegates coming from the UK and 50% from overseas.
There were 50 speakers including C-level panellists from NWC Saudi Arabia, Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority, Mekorot, International Finance Corp., IBM, Black & Veatch, CH2M Hill and Xylem and large delegations from Israel, India, Germany, the USA and other global water-tech hotspots
The overwhelming feedback on the summit was on the outstanding level of attendance, both in terms of numbers, and in terms of the seniority of the delegates. The audience was primarily composed of decision-makers who used the summit as an opportunity to cement relationships with existing clients and to network with potential partners. Hundreds of 1-1 business meetings occurred between delegates participating at the summit and further networking took place at the Pre-summit reception at the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office hosted by Richard Benyon MP.
