Grundfos Forum now links the world through a virtual conference

Water, environment and sustainability professionals from all over the world will have the opportunity to learn more about the future of water solutions, as leading pump manufacturer Grundfos opens up its global customer forum to the world.

A first for the event, the Grundfos Forum 2018 will be broadcasting from Suzhou, China, through a virtual conference. This will give professionals from all over the world the opportunity to hear from world-class engineers, government leaders, consultants, academics and other key decision-makers about ways to move and manage the world’s water better, under this year’s theme of Intelligent Connectivity.

The virtual conference will broadcast live on the 15th and 16th of August, and OnDemand from the 17th of August to the 14th of October. In addition to the access to talks, events and breakout sessions, participants will also get to have their voice heard – they will get to take part in the Forum’s Interactive Spaces, interact with Forum participants, and chat with experts while exploring the Exhibition Area.

To encourage greater engagement, online participants will also be automatically enrolled into the Leaderboard Challenge, where points are gained through participation. The top five participants will win a trip to Grundfos’ headquarters in Bjerringbro, Denmark.

“We have received tremendous feedback from business leaders and our customers about the insight and learnings that they have gained from attending our forum over the years. This year, we are hosting the conference online so that we can reach more industry professionals who are not able to make it to the event in person,” Kim Jensen, regional managing director of Grundfos Asia Pacific region, said. “Just as how technology has changed our relationship with water, it has transformed the way we get to engage with one another. With the virtual conference, people will not only get to tap into a wealth of knowledge, but also actively participate in the discussions with our experts and other participants.”
