Description

With 2007 bringing the wettest winter since 1914 and hottest April on record, climate change is being felt all around us. As extreme weather such as droughts, floods and storms become more commonplace, the water industry needs to adapt to mitigate the catastrophic effects that are predicted. To achieve this aim investment in infrastructure, technology and engineering expertise is essential.

The event for the entire water industry

The Water Summit is your opportunity to discover where the influx of engineering opportunities lie. This unique event will bring together the entire industry to develop holistic solutions for the future of water.
