With the new 3-day Water Stream, European Utility Week 2014 (4-6 November, Amsterdam) will further strengthen the position of water within the event’s portfolio, and with that responds to the industry’s need for a broader approach towards smart utility technology. The International Water Association will create the Water Stream programme and augment the existing water-specific marketing.
Paddy Young, Show Director of European Utility Week, commented, “I am delighted to work with an organisation with the global standing of the IWA. Water has always been an element of European Utility Week, by co-locating with such a high level conference we will bring the water element to another level, truly underlining our position as the leading European smart utility event.” Young continued, “Having seen first-hand what impact an IWA conference can make to an event I am extremely excited about the Water Stream partnership at European Utility Week.”
Ger Bergkamp, IWA Executive Director commented, “Utilities make up a significant proportion of IWA’s membership and we constantly strive to find ways to connect them with peers and clients. This is increasingly important as the water sector faces critical global challenges that require a major transformation in the way we engage with other sectors. “European Utility Week offers the exciting prospect of bringing utility leaders from the water and energy sectors together to forge partnerships and create sustainable solutions for our water and energy needs”.
