WWEM 2016 set to smash all previous records

Posted: Thursday 29th September 2016

With 8 Conferences, more than 80 Workshops and over 140 Exhibition stands, WWEM 2016 is destined to outperform all previous attendance figures. Industry professionals, regulators and academics from around the world will come to Telford (UK) on 2nd and 3rd November to learn about the latest developments in regulations, technologies, methods and standards in laboratory, process and environmental monitoring.

WWEM visitors include those responsible for monitoring natural waters, process water, drinking water and wastewater. There is also a Gas Detection Zone for those working in confined spaces and other areas were toxic or explosive gases have the potential to accumulate.

The first day of the CPD certified WWEM 2016 Conference will address a laboratory environmental analysis theme; entitled Priority Pollutants Legislation: Issues for Industry and Potential Solutions, Speakers will discuss regulations, compliance, analytical issues and remediation solutions. The afternoon session, chaired by Tony Harrington from Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, will discuss practical considerations and some potential solutions to some of the issues identified in the morning.

The Conference on the second day, organised by SWIG, will address the Resilience of Sensor Networks in the morning session, and the Maintenance of Sensors in the afternoon. SWIG is also running a Poster Competition for the Early Career Researcher Prize, which is intended to raise awareness of technological development and novel applications related to water measurements and thereby promote innovation in sensor research and commercial application. The competition, which has three substantial cash prizes, is open to all early career researchers to include undergraduate and postgraduate students either in full time education or within the first 4 years of employment within their area of expertise.

The WWEM 2016 Exhibition will feature organisations from around the globe, offering an opportunity to see the whole sector in one place. This year, the exhibition will be bigger than ever, featuring over 140 stands representing more than 250 of the world's leading providers of testing, analysis and monitoring equipment, and related services.

A wide range of new products for process monitoring will be launched with innovations from ATi, ABB, Bell Flow Systems, Cooper Environmental, Envitech, Lovibond, OTT Hydrometry, PPM, Pulsar, VEGA, Technolog, and Yara.

Many exhibitors will also launch new laboratory products. These include Aquamatic, Blue Scientific, ITS Europe, Labman, Labmedics, Parker Hannifin, Palintest, PerkinElmer, Reagecon, SEAL Analytical, Skalar and Xylem Analytics.

Over 80 free walk-in, walk-out Workshops will operate from 8 different rooms located within the Exhibition Hall. In general, the themes of the Workshops on the first day will be Process Monitoring and the themes of the second day will be Laboratory Analysis.

Big Data and the Internet of Things are starting to affect every industry, and the water sector is no exception. The IWA Conference will therefore provide an update on how data collection and processing is affecting the management of water and wastewater, and how it will develop in the future. With high profile speakers from 14 different countries, the IWA Conference will be a truly international event, attracting delegates from around the world.

The CIWEM conference will also run over two days featuring leading industry professionals presenting their views on how the water and environment sector will look in 2050. Discussions will include the latest innovations including Built Environment SMART Cities, Energy & Climate Change, Processed Water, Water Resources, Waste & Resources and Management & Regulation.

British Water and Cranfield University will run a Workshop entitled Monitoring for Hydraulic Fracturing with sub-topics on setting baseline monitoring and ongoing monitoring; this workshop will be repeated on both days of WWEM.

EFASIG, a special interest group within the British Mass Spectrometry Society, will hold a meeting during WWEM 2016 in which speakers will address a variety of subjects within an environmental analysis theme.

The Flow Forum (2nd Nov) hosted by Oliver Grievson, will address a number of key themes including the correct ways to collect the right data, reaping the benefits of flow monitoring, and area velocity flow measurement.

The Pump Centre's BIM Awareness Day (3rd Nov) will provide a detailed explanation of the implications of Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Pre-registered visitors (www.WWEM.uk.com) will receive free parking, free refreshments, free lunch and free access to the Exhibition, Workshops, Poster sessions and Demonstration Area, the BMSS Environmental Lab Analysis conference, the Pump Centre BIM event, and the Flow Forum.

"WWEM 2016 is set to be an enormous event," says organiser Marcus Pattison, "Major organisations are co-locating their events with WWEM, and as a result of this synergy, WWEM 2016 has become the major global event for anyone involved with water testing and environmental analysis."
