Welcome To Smart Water Middle East, Conference And Exhibition Where Global Water Utility Experts, Leakage Experts, Smart Water Technology Providers And Network Service Providers Will Meet To Explore Different Cost Effective Solutions For The Water Utilities Industry

Our Mission at Smart Water Middle East is to realize and assist in the development of the Water Network Infrastructure of Middle-East countries and help to shape a reliable and efficient future for the water sector.

The Middle East Region faces complex challenges to its water stability, security, and sustainability. The continuous rise in water use due to socio economic development, combined with water scarcity and growing climate variability will continue to impact and stress water availability.

Smart Water Middle East will address the most crucial, key, and current water challenges with a content led, solution focused agenda curated in partnership with a steering committee of regional water utility bodies. SWME is a core part of a global portfolio of Smart Water Network events organised by WeWater Group, the foremost communication network for water practitioners and technologists, delivering unique specialised conferences and exhibitions all over the world, attended by utility experts, solution providers and practicians to explore the best practices, innovations and latest technologies.

The SWME Summit is one of the regions most highly regarded communication networks and physical opportunities to meet peers, exhibitors, make deals, build partnerships and view the latest technologies and innovations in the water and environmental sector.

This flagship, industry leading Water Utilities and Networks event is a packed, one-day, high-level technical conference that brings together global industry though leaders, decision makers, and key stake holders, policy makers and governing officials from across the region and indeed world.

One of this year’s main focuses will be on the UAE Water Security Strategy 2036 which aims to reduce average consumption per capita by half as well as focus on sustainable practices. The agenda covers various areas of water technology and examines three key elements in the 2036 strategy including Water Demand Management, Water Supply Management, Emergency Production and Distribution and how to meet the key challenges with advanced technologies. We will analyse opportunities to Harness Predictive Data Technology, and Examin Strategies For Environmentally Friendly Desalination to Reduce Carbon Emissions and meeting the global target of net zero.

The 2022 technical programme addresses the sector and regions key, and current challenges, including Optimal Methods of Upgrading Legacy Systems and how to Utilise AI and IoT Technologies to enable them to become instrumental tools in creating a sustainable future with water access for all. Water Leakage, Prevention and Detection will be a continued theme; undetected leakages being a key contributor of global water loss, currently valued at $40 billion per year, driving ever increasing demand for innovative cost-effective solutions.

This event will allow you to better understand the best ways to navigate through the tricky framework when choosing a supplier, how to determine your needs as an organisation and the key questions to ask when sourcing a supplier and have the chance to meet solution providers face to face.
