Smart water networks, a fixture on the global Aquatech agenda

The Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN) signed a strategic agreement with Aquatech Global Events to organise Smart Water Pavilions at various events throughout 2019 and beyond. By joining forces, Aquatech visitors around the world will benefit from specialised knowledge on this topic, saving water and money as the smart water industry continues to gain momentum.

China, Mexico and Amsterdam will feature pavilions and/or combined with a knowledge programme. According to a report by SWAN Member Sensus, utilities could save up to $12.5 billion by implementing smart water systems.

Participants in the SWAN-pavilions included Utilis (Israel), Bentley Systems (Ireland), Controlpoint (U.K.), Watener (Spain), Kamstrup (Denmark), Servelec Technologies (U.K.), and Aganova (Spain).

“The SWAN Forum is thrilled to sign a long-term agreement with Aquatech Global Events to provide global exposure for SWAN Members and leading solution providers,” Amir Cahn, SWAN’s Executive Director, said. “This partnership, which will extend across Mexico City, Amsterdam and Shanghai-based Aquatech events, will leverage on the strengths of both organisations to help accelerate the smart water sector.”

“Our interest and focus is on startups and institutions leveraging new technologies and digitalisation within the water sector,” Annette Bos, Director Water of Aquatech Global Events, added. “In our cooperation with SWAN Forum, we can ensure the engagement of leading players from across the industry and across the world.”
