Water UK’s City Conference 2017 explores the financial environment of the UK water industry. The event will host key decision-makers who will discuss and identify solutions and innovations that will ensure sustainable investments in the UK water industry.
ABOUT THE WATER UK CITY CONFERENCE
The UK’s 17th Water City Conference is the leading financial event for the water sector. By bringing together over 180 industry leaders with regulators and government bodies alongside investors, ratings agencies and city institutions to discuss future finance and investment, the Water UK Conference has become a key event in the water industry.
This event provides a complete review of the current water industry challenges and its future direction, and will aim to identify whether the water sector, and its investors and stakeholders are confident about the future. It will also look at how the water companies have changed/are changing their strategies and models to adapt to the recent and forthcoming changes on the horizon as, for example, the 20 percent increase in population forecast over the next twenty years, and issues including affordability and quality.
