The UK Water Partnership Takes Half Day Slot at World WaterTech 2017

The UK Water Partnership worked with Rethink Events to provide the content for the second morning of the 2017 World WaterTech Conference held in London on the 21st and 22nd February.

UKWP Chairman, The Rt Hon Richard Benyon MP, kicked off the second day of the conference with a Keynote Address entitled “Gearing Up for Global Markets- Opportunities for Fostering Innovation and Commercialisation of Water Technologies in the   UK “.

Director Mark Lane then chaired three discussion panels which addressed current developments in the UK to address the three topical  issues of ” Too Much Water “,  “Too Little Water “, and cracking ” the Commercialisation Conundrum “.

Mark Lane commented ” This year’s attendance at World WaterTech, at over 200 delegates, was a record number. I am delighted that we were able to showcase what The UK Water Partnership is all about in front of so many key players in the water technology sector, and from so many countries. Addressing societal needs through the development and commercialisation of new water technologies to deal with the key issues of Too Much Water, Too Little Water, and how to enable young start ups in the water technology space to overcome the obstacles on the road to commercial success are all matters of great importance. The UK Water Partnership catalysed the views of the programme speakers and conference delegates to produce some valuable insights into these three topics”.
