The International Water Summit (IWS) is a global platform for promoting water sustainability in arid regions by bringing together world leaders, field experts, academics and business innovators to accelerate the development of new sustainable strategies and technologies.
The International Water Summit celebrates its five-year anniversary in 2017 and to mark this milestone, exciting changes are being made to the exhibition and conference that will make it the most interactive and inspirational to date.
The exhibition is designed to enable attendees to meet with market-leading companies, along with influential industry and government figures. The two-day conference at IWS has become a must-attend event for the water industry to hear about future infrastructure projects plans, government strategies and market-leading innovation. The IWS 2017 conference will focus on energy efficiency within the water cycle, major technological innovations, the major planned projects, energy-efficient desalination, reducing water loss and much more.
