BlueTech Forum 2018Managing Water Risk in the Circular Economy

BlueTech Forum is synonymous with water innovation and enables its attendees to stay one step ahead of the market. The Forum is a chance to broaden your horizons, expand your business network, and discover strategic business opportunities.

Roundtable briefings, keynotes and case studies

This year’s sessions illustrate how the future of the water sector is being shaped by the trend of Circular Economy and how we should adapt our strategy to thrive in this new environment.

An exclusive opportunity to network with industry thought leaders combined with the access to unique BlueTech Market Insights create a carefully crafted agenda for the Forum.

Different people, new technologies, real global advances

While being business-focused, the BlueTech Forum maintains an intimate and convivial feel to it which prompts conversation and building of long-lasting relationships.

We believe that life is too short for ‘just-another-water-conference’ and aim to facilitate genuine progress which comes into play in the real world.
