More than 130 people attended last year’s event and, with the water industry under increasing pressure to realign itself as a customer-focused industry, this year is expected to be no less popular.

The most significant reform since privatisation is being introduced through the parliamentary water bill, which aims to deliver a more sustainable, resilient and customer-orientated sector. Further, the economic regulator, Ofwat, has placed the onus on water companies to set up Customer Challenge Groups and take customers’ views into account when developing business plans for the forthcoming price review.

While the regulatory drivers are significant, the rewards for successful engagement are many, including demand management, smoother project delivery, increased revenue collection and improved environment management.

With speakers from Defra, Ofwat, CCWater and the customer service sector, anyone divining the direction the water industry is taking should find the agenda highly relevant. The conference will take place at the Holiday Inn in Birmingham city centre.
