Global Water Summit 2019
On April 8th – 10th 2019 the Global Water Summit returns to London, one of the great world cities. Historic, grand and global, it is also a hub for creativity and finance, two of the pillars of a more successful water future. It is a city of opportunity, possibility, and constant flux, and one that exemplifies the disruptive trends we will be exploring at this year’s Summit. London’s high tech industries are at the forefront of new disruptive digital technologies and AI, while at the same time the city struggles with the impact of climate change and the volatile political and economic climate in the form of Brexit.
This year we’re discussing Disruptive Designs. Disruption creates enormous opportunities as well as obstacles, and it offers real solutions to previously intractable problems. While barriers to trade grab the headlines, huge new markets are opening up in an unprecedented fashion. In the global water sector the story is a refreshing one of collaboration and consolidation rather than fragmentation and isolationism.
What the leaders of the water sector need to make the most of this new volatility is a clear global view and the right contacts. How are current trends going to play out, and how will it affect supply chains, revenue streams and business relationships? Where are the new opportunities, and who are the people you need to talk to? Where is the “fake news”?
