IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition
16.09.2012 - 21.09.2012
Busan, South Korea
The event is a valuable and unique opportunity for the community of world-leading water professionals to meet, exchange ideas, explore the state of the art and debate the key issues underlying the science and practice of water. It is also where the entire water community congregates once every two years and where IWA specialist groups showcase their work and plan for future activities.
Presentations at the congress relate to all aspects of the water cycle and are organised around these key themes:
Integrated urban water systems
Managing utilities and their assets
Water treatment technologies
Wastewater treatment and reuse
Water and health
Water resources supply and sustainability
Water, climate and energy
As well as these traditional subjects, there is a strong focus on water in the developing world and a special program for young water professionals (YWPs).
The congress proceedings are supported by a world-leading exhibition of 200 water and sanitation products and services providers and a number of national pavilions.
There is also a full programme of business networking and social events and tours. The highlight is the gala dinner, which is normally attended by 2,000 people.
