“There were ample opportunities given for delegates to absorb cutting edge knowledge in a host of inspirational talks, and have abundant networking opportunities with fellow water industry professionals in between talks, both in person and online.

I was able to meet so many fantastic people willing to share their experiences and offer advice.

As a first-time conference attendee, I would certainly recommend this wonderful event to anyone with a passion for water, whether you are a research student like me, early stage professional or are highly experienced in the water industry, I have no doubt you will learn so much from the experience of others at the conference.”
