WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL Set for April
Mar 06, 2013
From April 23 to 26, WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL, one of the leading international trade fairs of the water industry, will be opening its doors in the German capital for the 15th time.
Around 30,000 visitors representing business, science and politics are expected to attend and will be finding out about the latest technology and innovations, including many world firsts, from some 600 companies who are exhibiting in the display halls on an area of more than 40,000 sq m. The range of topics is correspondingly large. It includes every part of the value chain, with subjects ranging from drinking water extraction, water supplies and pipeline construction to wastewater disposal and treatment.
The financial world, demographic change, population growth, climate change and international laws are the factors which currently dictate our day-to-day business operations. Water represents a global market. That is why water industry companies must adjust to a new order. In order to support this process WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL is organizing the fair to reflect the economic cycle of the water industry and take into account the areas that cross over into neighboring sectors. For the first time there are six Competence Centers, which deal with selected main topics. As independent sections their purpose is to provide an in-depth forum for raising issues and finding solutions and discussing the key topics at the fair.
International attendance at the congress WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2013 is higher than ever before. Taking place on 24 and 25 April 2013, its slogan is “The innovative concepts, measures and technologies of a forward-looking water industry.” This event is organized by Verein Wasser Berlin e.V. Discussions at the four forums will center on the economic cycle of the water industry, ranging from extensive surface water protection measures to wastewater treatment.
Other highlights include the eighth International Symposium on Pipeline Construction and Schaustelle WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL on April 25, where participants can find out firsthand about modern and innovative methods and the handling of building projects. On April 24, the program of congress events at the first No-Dig Berlin will be taking a look at innovative construction methods. In Hall 1.2 exhibitors will be providing information on trenchless construction technology. In 2011 the organizers succeeded in bringing the Interanational No-Dig Show to Berlin. Now renamed No-Dig Berlin, this specialist event will be continuing in a new format at WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL. On April 25, the German Technical Association for Gas and Water (DVGW) and the Association of Companies in the Gas and Water Industries (figawa) will be holding a symposium on well construction – the ideal event to discuss the latest developments in geothermal applications and drilling using fracking technology. Numerous other events on selected specialist subjects will round off the programme of information.
In 2011, around one third of the exhibitors and trade visitors at WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL came from abroad and the numbers are continuing to rise. There is a special emphasis on the countries in the Arab world. This event is organized by Messe Berlin GmbH with the support of the Berlin Senate Department of Economics.
