Just A Few Features & Benefits Of Attending …

Business case assessments and practical examples are being brought in from a variety of countries

During our research conversations, you notified LBCG that it would be incredibly valuable to obtain insight into how other international water utilities create a business case and choose specific technologies for smart metering. Cities suffering water scarcity, dry areas, and even water-rich countries, such as Canada, are considering installing smart metering systems for many different reasons. Expect to hear a variety of use cases and actual implementation case studies from multinational water utilities with whom you would not typically have the opportunity to network with.

Combining strategic level speakers and strategy heads with   middle management practitioners responsible for metering implementation, network management and leak detection integration

Technology is only a component of this conference, and it will not be overemphasised. The sessions on the agenda are intended to concentrate largely on the business case, followed by practical implementation strategies that are effective and cost-competitive. The sessions will include both visionary keynotes to highlight the financial and ROI elements, as well as the best execution measures.

Learn how to create the most effective smart metering implementation plan

Feasibility studies  play an essential role in the implementation of smart metering programmes. In accordance with the current state of the industry,  pilot testing, proof of concept  and  localised trials  are a major features of the agenda. Alternate sessions will also show how water companies are working through the  business case for different operating scenarios  and the associated  cost-based assumptions of end-to-end system integration

Analyse the deployment of smart meters from beginning to end, with an emphasis on data analytics for customer empowerment  Ultimately, the technology exists to enable the data stream and the creation of data. The agenda sessions emphasise what to do and how to act upon the data so that it is beneficial to customers.

Avoid expensive implementation mistakes   Discover what makes a “good” system 

If water authorities make a mistake with their water metering deployment, such as, for example, selecting a technology that rapidly becomes outdated, the costs may be astronomical. As usual, we're working with our speakers to encourage them to be frank about what's working, as well as what some of the problems were, or even some of the failures. The ultimate objective is to establish a success criterion for smart metering adoption and offer the industry a road map to collectively comprehend what makes a “good, fit for purpose smart metering system”.

Every single water utility has something to offer and something to learn

According to what you've told us, the rapid pace of technological change, the uncertainty of the macroeconomic outlook, and the possibility of climate change-related events significantly altering the supply-and-demand water balance, all mean that every water utility is constantly learning about new aspects of smart metering implementation. Expect the networking to be full of focused, highly relevant discussion and the conference room to be still full at 6pm, as is the case with most of LBCG’s water events. There is, after all, so much to learn. And so many solutions and spin offs to investigate.   

Use the LBCG app, to schedule informal meetings in advance 

Networking is an essential aspect of this conference. And we are bringing in expert facilitators to really drive the conversation to find solutions and share best practices, in addition to delivering top-quality, vetted in advance,  presentations.  In addition, one key innovation is that all delegates will receive an app that allows them to schedule  informal  meetings with other attendees in advance.  So that you may plan your schedule and make the most of all the allotted networking time over the two days. Please note that the meetings are of an informal nature only as LBCG does not operate an organised compulsory meetings model.

Benefit from the live virtual feed, which allows you to view the presentations and participate in the Q&A even if you must return to the office or work away from the conference for part of the time.


Event History

The Global Smart Water Metering Congress is the world's premier global congress,  designed to help water utilities develop faster and more efficient management systems , reflecting the true value of water and supply delivery targets.

Like our flagship Global Leakage Summit (London, September 2023). this will be an  international platform  for all those in the business of delivering improved efficiency for their particular water utility, the Global Smart Water Metering Congress will draw in world-wide practitioners, from industry leaders such as;  SUEZ Environnement Paris  ;  Vienna Waterworks Austria  ;  Thames Water UK  ;  Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority Cambodia  ;  Al Ain Distribution Company, UAE  ;  Oslo Water, Norway ; Scottish Water, UK ; Municipal Water, Poland  ;  Taiwan Water, Taiwan  ;  Pub Singapore, Singapore ; Anglian Water, UK  and many others.


Directors Heads VPs  and  Managers  of water solutions, network infrastructure, leakage, operations, engineering, business development, technology, and specialists in modelling and design, from  Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Jordan, Bahrain, Burkina Faso, Chile Portugal Brazil Israel USA Canada Zambia Slovenia South Africa Qatar Malaysia Japan Norway, UAE, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Poland, Portugal, Finland  among others, have traveled to London from across the globe to take part in this prestigious summit over the last 12 years.

It has proved to be a  high quality information-sharing summit for delegates , at both a technical and strategic level, and addressed how new concepts and technologies are being deployed, pressure management and network optimisation, to cost-effectively address water stress and water scarcity challenges worldwide.

Now, with the addition of a robust live streaming platform, it is even easier for delegates across the world to participate.
