China Utility Week 2018 will be the largest, content rich International gathering where visions, global best practices can be shared, compared and business is done to help accelerate this sustainable digital transition.

Benefitting from being part of a global event portfolio, China Utility Week will once again utilise its global utility week event format of strategic summit, project focused hub sessions, and out of the box Initiate! programme.

Inclusion and partnerships are key and therefore China Utility Week will serve as an annual meeting point for the community and is attended by 4000 Chinese and international visitors from all levels of the utility value chain from technology giants to startups and from senior-level experts to young talent.


A programme with two distinct purposes: Strategic discussions and Hub Sessions – for more practical industry solutions. More than 100 expert speakers will give you the insight you need to drive the industry forward.


150 exhibitors will be offering end-to-end industry solutions and divided into specific industry zones and country pavilions.


Initiate! hosts the Startup Programme, the Young Talent Programme and its own agenda including a multitude of workshops and networking sessions. Focused on stimulating innovation and discussion between new and more established professionals from the industry, Initiate! provides an environment where discussion, opportunities and new ideas are encouraged to help the industry thrive and grow.
