LONDON, England, June 11. 2012 – The deadline for submitting abstracts for conference and exhibition WaterWorld Middle East 2012 has now been extended to June 22.
Quickly establishing itself as the region’s premier conference and exhibition, WaterWorld Middle East 2013 is now giving utilities, consultancies and technology providers an extended 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.
Tom Freyberg, conference director of WaterWorld Middle East, said: “The water industry now has an extra few days to submit an abstract and be part of the growing event. 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.”
