LONDON, England, May 3. 2012 -- Following a successful launch event earlier this year in the thriving Middle Eastern market of Qatar, WaterWorld Middle East has now announced its Call for Papers for its 2013 event.
Quickly establishing itself as the region’s premier conference and exhibition. WaterWorld Middle East is now inviting utilities, consultancies and technology providers the opportunity to share their knowledge, experience and ideas.
WaterWorld Middle East is set to be held again in Qatar in February 2013, a country that is leading the GCC’s economic and population growth. Qatar is already one of the largest consumers of water on a per capita basis and, as a result, is expected to invest a further $10 billion in water over the next decade.
Huge investment is also expected over the coming years as a result of Qatar hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup, where the eyes of the world will focus on the region and adequate water services will be required for thousands of additional visitors.
This year the WaterWorld Middle East team is inviting papers on topical issues such as wastewater reuse/recycling, cooling water treatment, drinking water membrane desalination and country or regional water sector overviews.
The full list of conference topics will include: water sector structure and regulation; desalination; strategic planning & management; collection & distribution networks; wastewater treatment; drinking water treatment and industrial water treatment.
Timm Dower, event director, commented: “As well as the strategic conference, WaterWorld Middle East provides a growing exhibition floor full of the latest technological innovations. Delegates can hear about industry developments in the conference sessions and then see the technology first hand on the show floor.”
Tom Freyberg, conference director, added: “The peer reviewed, strategic and technical conference of WaterWorld Middle East continues to go from strength to strength. We are expecting to see an increased focus on wastewater reuse, as technological advances help bring down the cost and accessibility of treatment.
“In partnership with an experienced, technical conference committee we are expecting WaterWorld Middle East to be the industry’s leading event and help bring international expertise to the region.”
