In a significant year for the water industry ahead of planned deregulation in April 2017, The Water Event (15-16th September 2015, NEC Birmingham) is the only exhibition where visitors can meet with the UK’s top five water suppliers. As a leading event within the industry, The Water Event is proud to have the support and backing of the major water suppliers who will be setting out their offering to large commercial and industrial end-users.

Anglian Water, Business Stream, Severn Trent, Thames Water and United Utilities will all be sharing their advice with visitors on how their water services can help businesses and manufacturing companies improve efficiency, reduce cost and comply with best practice and regulations in the new environment for the water industry.

Rupert Kruger, Head of Business Services at Thames Water said: “There has never been a more important time for businesses to understand their water use, to improve efficiency and reduce their impact on the environment. Thames Water – with its proud heritage – has a tremendous depth of knowledge and range of valuable, cost-effective services, which we’re enhancing and extending thanks to on-going investment in our people, systems and processes. We’re delighted to be attending the Water Event and meeting a wide range of businesses looking to transform their relationship with water and wastewater retailers.”

“The landscape of the water market is going to change dramatically,” says Russell Bacon, Portfolio Director at i2i Events Group. “Now, is the crucial time for large end users to find out how they can procure and manage water services more efficiently with the opportunity to switch water suppliers from April 2017 onwards. With so many of the big suppliers now confirmed to exhibit at The Water Event, the show provides the perfect environment to gain insights into what is available, understand the benefits and appreciate how any transition will work in practice.”

The Water Event will feature a range of exhibitors with relevant services and advice for large industrial and commercial end-users. It will also include a packed seminar programme designed to highlight topics such as pricing tariffs, added value downstream services and customer service provision. Significant organisations and new companies signed up for 2015 include Dart Valley Systems Limited, Water Direct, Kelda Water Services Retail Ltd, Source for Business and Waterscan Ltd, and many more.
