WWT's 5th Water Industry Technology Innovation Conference launches
Senior water industry professionals looking to trial novel technological solutions and drive innovative business strategies will meet in Birmingham on 29th November.
The WWT Technology Innovation Conference will run for the 5th time this year and will provide delegates with a vital update on the impact of impending retail competition on innovation, consider customer-centric solutions, and enable attendees to hear how their peers are implementing game-changing technological solutions.
Leaders in the industry will open the day with presentations addressing the role of the regulator, the importance of the customer and considering whether competition incentivises risk. The event hosts two breakout groups before lunch allowing delegates to choose their focus be it people and processes, or collaboration with the supply chain, and a future-gazing session around the long-term visions for technological innovation in water.
