About & Location


The WWT Wastewater 2018 Conference & Exhibition is the UK's largest wastewater event with three distinct conferences and a shared innovation zone running in parallel. It is a comprehensive, single-day showcase of case-studies and thought-leadership designed to tackle all of the current wastewater challenges in one place.

Now in its 6th year, the Wastewater Infrastructure & Networks Conference brings together network and engineering leaders to find innovative ways to enhance asset resilience, mitigate risk against flooding and pollution, and assess investment opportunities ahead of PR19 and AMP7.

Now in its 3rd year, the Wastewater Treatment Conference brings together operations leaders to drive collaboration, explore the best methods for the removal of pollutants and recovery of vital substances, and drive innovative treatment processes that keep costs low and benefit the natural environment.

The inaugural Sludge Conference brings together technical leaders to assess the impacts of regulation and competition on sludge management, explore innovation in recycling and reuse, and address opportunities for generating more renewable energy from sludge.

We look forward to meeting you in Birmingham for an insightful day of knowledge exchange and networking.
