Global Water Industry Meets at Four-Day Event in Berlin
Mar 06 2013
Trade fair Wasser Berlin International, from 23 to 26 April 2013, will experience around 600 exhibitors from nearly every branch of the water industry who will be showcasing their products, services and solutions. Some 30,000 trade visitors are expected to attend, of whom one third are from abroad.
From 23 to 26 April Wasser Berlin International, specialist international trade fair in the water industry, will be opening its doors in the German capital for the fifteenth time. Around 30,000 visitors representing business, science and politics are expected to attend and will be finding out about the latest technology and innovations, including many world firsts, from some 600 companies who are exhibiting in the display halls on an area of more than 40,000 square metres. The range of topics is correspondingly large. It includes every part of the value chain, with subjects ranging from drinking water extraction, water supplies and pipeline construction to wastewater disposal and treatment.
The financial world, demographic change, population growth, climate change and international laws are the factors which currently dictate our day-to-day business operations. Water represents a global market. That is why water industry companies must adjust to a new order. In order to support this process Wasser Berlin International is organising the fair to reflect the economic cycle of the water industry and take into account the areas that cross over into neighbouring sectors. For the first time there are six Competence Centres which deal with selected main topics. As independent sections their purpose is to provide an in-depth forum for raising issues and finding solutions and discussing the key topics at the fair.
International attendance at the congress Wasser Berling International 2013 is higher than ever before. Taking place on 24 and 25 April 2013, its slogan is “The innovative concepts, measures and technologies of a forward-looking water industry.“ This event is organised by Verein Wasser Berlin e.V. Discussions at the four forums will centre on the economic cycle of the water industry, ranging from extensive surface water protection measures to wastewater treatment. Other highlights include the 8th International Symposium on Pipeline Construction and Schaustelle Wasser Berlin International on 25 April 2013, where participants can find out first-hand about modern and innovative methods and the handling of building projects. On 24 April 2013 the programme of congress events at the first NO DIG BERLIN will be taking a look at innovative construction methods. In Hall 1.2 exhibitors will be providing information on trenchless construction technology.
In 2011 around one third of the exhibitors and trade visitors at Wasser Berlin International came from abroad and the numbers are continuing to rise. There is a special emphasis on the countries in the Arab world. ACWUA, the association based in Amman representing Arab water companies from 17 countries, is the official partner of Wasser Berlin International. Cooperation at the fair includes an Arab Forum devoted to water industry matters in this region. International forums in the display halls will also be taking a close look at individual markets.
Qualified young professionals are much in demand in the water industry, which is why Wasser Berlin International has made the Young Water Professionals Programme a regular event at the fair. An exchange and training programme, it targets up-and-coming engineers, scientists and students from Germany and abroad. It gives participants the chance to meet people and make use of a specially created job exchange for information on vacancies. Furthermore, on 26 April at the Career Day companies will be presenting themselves to the public and advertising career opportunities. On 26 April the Young Water Professional Conference, a new event, will be taking place at the International Forum in Hall 3.2.
