The exhibition welcomes more than 480 participating companies from 38 countries and regions to showcase their cutting-edge technologies, solutions, products and equipment in all subdivisions of the water industry from water supply, sanitation, waste water treatment to purification and desalination sectors.
Ms. Eliane van Doorn, Business Development Director (ASEAN Business), UBM Asia, the organiser of VIETWATER said, "In the recent press conference in Ho Chi Minh, we have announced to launch the 9th edition of VIETWATER this year. We surely continue to build an international business platform for 14,000 participants to connect, exchange and share their industry expertise. The exhibition features 14 international pavilions, giving participants the latest technology updates in the water industry. Focusing on sustainable water development, VIETWATER 2017 is carrying out activities to support both the business side and the general community."
Serving the business community, Vietwater pre-show conference was held in Hanoi in August, attracting about 180 key industry players discussing and learning about how to improve the quality of Water Supply and Sanitation Service through Innovations, Upgraded Technologies and Effective Utility Management.
In support to the Vietnamese community, UBM is working in partnership with the Vietnam Water Supply and Sewerage Association (VWSA), Australian Water Association (AWA) and SkyJuice Foundation for the delivering of a safe drinking water project in the rural communities of Khanh Phu and Lien Sang, Khanh Hoa Province, Vietnam.
The project introduces advanced, low cost and easy to operate membrane filtration systems to two rural schools, providing 20,000L per day of safe drinking water to the children and staff. The project involves training of local representatives from the Khanh Hoa Provincial Water Supply Authority and operators of the systems and is delivered in partnership with the Khanh Hoa Peoples Committee to ensure the long-term sustainability of the treatment systems.
Apart from these activities, VIETWATER 2017 is introducing the Water Innovation Gallery on the exhibition floor, where the latest innovative technologies and solutions are on display to assist the development of water technologies in Vietnam. The exhibition offers FREE admission, allowing all industry visitors to have the opportunities to learn about Vietnam's water market, international technologies, and a number of practical and insightful experiences from technical seminars and an international conference with the theme "Toward Sustainable Water Development -- International Experience".
