With the new 3-day Smart Water track, created in cooperation with the International Water Association (IWA), European Utility Week will further strengthen the position of water within the event’s portfolio, and with that respond to the industry’s need for a broader approach towards smart utility technology.

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."
