About the Summit

Vulnerable to weather extremes, water quality issues and high energy consumption, the water sector is at a tipping point. Do we innovate to maintain and optimise existing assets or do we look to radicalise operations with advanced technologies? While there is no one-size fits all approach, one thing is for certain – the water sector needs to take action.

Now is the time to galvanise resources towards the markets, technologies and industries that offer the greatest return. And with this a shift from business as usual towards proactive approaches that predict problems before they culminate in crisis.
Are you ready to step up to the challenge?

200 water leaders, utilities, engineering consultancies, technology companies and investors attended the World Water-Tech Innovation Summit on Feb 20 -21 to meet new technology partners, forge alliance and do business with the best in water.


  • Hearing direct from leading utilities: Where are today’s water utilities looking to invest

  • Climate change mitigation: How cities are building resilience and reducing vulnerability from external stresses

  • Turn your wastewater into a resource: Boost your return on investment with water re-use and resource recovery

  • Commercialisation conundrum: Technology commercialisation and adoption

  • Delve into the data debate: Effectively capitalise on the benefits of data-driven decision making

  • International business opportunities: Meet international water leaders and learn from global markets
