BlueTech Forum 2018Managing Water Risk in the Circular Economy
BlueTech Forum is synonymous with water innovation and is known for always being one step ahead of the market. People come to broaden their horizons, expand their network and to do business.
Roundtable briefings, key notes and case studies
This year a series of roundtables briefings, key notes and case studies will illustrate how the future of the water sector is being shaped and what our strategy should be to adapt and thrive in this environment.
The combination of high-level networking with industry thought-leaders and access to unique BlueTech Market Insights form the basis for the carefully crafted agenda
Different people, new technologies, real global advances
BlueTech Forum is much more than a talking shop where you’ll hear the same platitudes and meet the same people. Life is too short for ‘just- another-water-conference’: we want to facilitate real progress which comes into play in the real world quickly.
While being very business-focused, the event has an intimate and convivial feel to it which facilitates conversation and relationship-building.
CDP was delighted to partner with BlueTech to build understanding of large corporates’ use of water technologies. BlueTech’s excellent network of water solutions providers combined with CDP’s unique global dataset on corporate water risks helped attendees understand the challenges that large companies face and the opportunities to solve them.
Orlaith Delgary, CDP
Congratulations for you and your team for the organization and the excellent content of the Forum. It was a pleasure to exchange with peers and solution/technology suppliers in that perfect managed frame.

Marieke Leenhouts, Amsterdam
Just to say thank you very much for hosting such a great event. As a first time attendee I found it extremely useful for both networking and information gathering.
Karl Crowley, MICRACentre
I just had to write to sincerely thank you for hosting such a fantastic event last week. We were very impressed with the format, content and attendees at the forum. It was a thrill to receive recognition with one of the BlueTech Forum Innovation Awards as well, thank you very much!
Jodi Glover, RealTech

Henri Lambert, Apsara Capital
A quick word of thanks and well done to you and your team on today’s conference. Meticulously planned and expertly delivered, it was a truly excellent event.
Ken Stockil, Central Solutions
On behalf of my team I would like to thank you and your team for organizing another succesful edition of Bluetech Forum. The combination of the round tables and key-notes and the meetings with end-users like ABP, L’Oreal, Nestlé and Irish Water and colleagues like Realtech, NPV Energy and BioGill has been worthwile and will generate opportunities in the near future. Also the sponsorship has been worthwile and we appreciate the branding and attention put to the sponsor.
Menno Holterman, Nijhuis Industries
A very productive event with direct connections to important business leaders, the BlueTech Forum was hugely beneficial to Oxymem. I have been very impressed with the organisation and execution of the event, the intimate networking opportunities and the quality of the material presented. Having end users, investors, technology start-ups, research institutes and large water companies in the room really added to the overall experience.
Wayne Byrne, Oxymem
The BlueTech Forum was an excellent source of the latest technologies and developments in the water process & management applications. All sessions were very informative and excellent for networking. Highly recommended for CTO’s, CEO’s, CMO’s to attend and align the business strategy with the evolving Industry and market needs.
Jim Matharu, Aquatech
We found the BlueTech Forum in Dublin to be a valuable event for XPV, with a good mix of relevant content and networking opportunities. Among many water conferences each year, BlueTech provides differentiated and useful technical knowledge in the conference sessions via its strong network of TAG experts and user groups outside the water sector, which can be hard to access. Our sponsorship offered us attractive visibility and networking connections at the event itself, and from a longer-term perspective, we are pleased to support BlueTech’s leadership in bringing new technology into the water sector, which we believe will continue to provide a benefit to our firm and the industry at large.
