International Networking at High-Level Seminars
The Aquatech concept all around the world connects businesses, governments and science and Aquatech China is no exception. It drives business, spreads knowledge and the networking opportunities are second to none. The content at Aquatech China is provided by high-brow speakers and participants including representatives of international financing institutions and development banks, as well as Chinese regulators, government officials, contractors, technology providers, and end-users.

Creating Value in Industries
Next to a packed show floor, an esteemed speaker line up will present at the Industrial Water Leadership Forum providing highly topical content combined with unique Chinese insight.

This year’s Industrial Water Leaders Forum’’ will outline the water challenges confronting the industries under the theme ‘Creating value in industries’. Industries in China are facing water challenges like never due to stricter regulations on water usage and discharge. Meanwhile, they are beginning to look at water in a new way. Rather than a free raw material to be used and abused as they choose, businesses are beginning to see the opportunity to benefit both the environment and their shareholders through better water stewardship. More and more industries are encouraged to seek the expertise of a third party, who could offer cost-saving solutions that could not only help them to meet the regulations but also maximize water and energy efficiency, allowing them to focus on their core production business.

Industrial Water Leaders Forum 2019 will be held on 3rd June, the first day of Aquatech, at the InterContinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC. The forum is jointly hosted by Ecolab, Global Water Intelligence (GWI) and Aquatech Global Events. Alliance for Water Stewardship is the supporting organization of the event.

Digitalization of Water – Water Supply and Wastewater Treatment
This bi-lingual seminar will be held the first time this year (on 4 June), organized by China Europe Water Platform (CEWP). Experts, utilities, governmental organizations and companies operating in the fields of Water Supply and Wastewater Treatment will be brought together to discuss the future challenges and opportunities of smart water. Many practical issues will be involved during the seminar, like “What are the major digital technology disruptors that companies in the water business will face?” and “How does this development affect both the Chinese and European water markets?”
