Taiwan’s only business-to-business (B2B) water-related tradeshow, Taiwan International Water Week (TIWW), will return to the Taipei World Trade Centre (TWTC) Exhibition Hall 1, from 13-15 Oct 2022.
The main theme of TIWW 2022 is water reclamation and recycling. The theme is in line with current reports from the BBC that 2022 might be experiencing “the worst drought ever and on an unprecedented scale” worldwide. As a result, solutions for water sustainability are in demand, such as water reclamation and recycling, wastewater treatment, seawater desalination, pipeline transportation equipment, and smart water monitoring and management. The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) thus hopes to use TIWW to let enterprises from around the world to share solutions for water sustainability, as well as to expand their outreach into Taiwanese and global markets.
The exhibition will feature new products and technologies for treating water at different parts in the pipeline, from source to tap. Several of Taiwan’s most distinguished companies will be holding exhibitions at the event, such as Sinotech Engineering Consultants, LCY Chemical, Hui Min Environmental Tech Corporation, GSD Envi-Tech and TankPAC Industries. International companies from six countries will also have exhibits at the event, including the US-based Fluence Water and Nanostone Water, as well as the French-based water management company Veolia Water.
One of the key events that will be held are showcases for new water management technologies. These include an emergency desalination unit by Hui Min Environmental Tech, GSD Enviro Tech’s smart water service platform and the EPPA membrane bioreactor and fluidised-bed fenton reactor, created by the LCY Chemical Corp and Ever-Clear respectively.
Another key event would include the TIWW international forum, held from 12-14 Oct. The event is organised by the Water Resources Agency and Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), at the Taipei International Convention Centre (TICC). Fifty-five experts, scholars, and business leaders from all over the world will discuss future trends and solutions in water management, including topics like sustainable water management, environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG), and measures to tackle extreme weather conditions within the public and private sector.
Other events include a TIWW tech talk on water reclamation and technology for developing new water resources, a water resources seminar on water footprints and crises, as well as one-on-one procurement meetings.
Interested parties may sign up on the official website to get a free entry pass and are only required to bring their confirmation letter and business card to be given entry into the event.
