CATALYZE OPPORTUNITIES WITH INDUSTRY INSIDERS

Connect. Discuss. Innovate.

2018 AGENDA

One Room. One Moderator. One Water. Like technology evolves, so too does the format for Water Leaders Summit 2018. Steering away from the traditional “breakout session” conference approach, the Summit utilizes a dynamic program with sessions combining brief, provocative “story starters” followed by engaging conversations between our moderator and global water leaders.

Connecting our audience in the same room throughout the Summit enhances the ability to determine targets and key relationships, offers intimate networking opportunities and additional face-to-face time with speakers.

Theme: Global Industries Revving Up Water Tech Demand

Host: Rich Meeusen, President/Chairman/CEO of Badger Meter, Inc. and Co-Chair of The Water Council
