As the industry gears up for the next AMP cycle and PR19, water companies must find innovative ways to enhance their business plans and prepare for long-term challenges.

Increased regulatory pressures and customer expectations, coupled with greater competition, has led to an essential need for innovative solutions that keep costs low, drive efficiency, and mitigate risk at a time of uncertainty. Breaking down resistance to technological innovation, encouraging risk-taking, and ensuring that customers see long-term benefits are challenges facing the industry.

Although game-changing technologies exist, a step-change in the water sector is needed to bring more of these to market.

Building on the success of the last five years, the 2017 WWT Water Industry Technology Innovation Conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear how their peers are utilising game-changing technologies such as desalination, gasification and drones, and implementing innovative business strategies, with case studies and practical examples from across the sector. It will reflect upon retail competition 6 months on, address the role of collaborative innovation, and provide attendees with the tools to facilitate innovation within their own organisations.

We look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham for what promises to be an excellent opportunity for networking and knowledge exchange.
