The Pump Centre will again host the Water Equipment Show at The Telford International Centre on May 11th, 2022, returning in person after being held the previous year digitally.
This highly anticipated water and wastewater industry event will host over sixty exhibitors and over thirty experts speakers. On show will be a wide range of equipment and services available from many of the UK’s leading manufacturers, suppliers and contractors. The technical conference and breakout sessions also reflect the show’s considerable impact on the UK water industry.
The event offers a unique opportunity to discover the latest thinking on innovative approaches to reducing water industry issues and stay informed through a technical conference and specialist training sessions. Also on offer will be in-depth discussion workshops on industry-leading themes, browse the exhibition featuring many of the UK’s leading water industry manufacturers and suppliers, and opportunities to find new solutions and strategies for tackling the water industry’s leading challenges.
John Howarth, Pump Centre Manager, said of the event: “This is a great opportunity for our industry to gather in one location again. After a very successful digital event, it’ll be interesting to network, discuss issues and discover the latest technology in the water and wastewater industry in person.
“We’re looking forward to hosting this very special event and seeing how the industry has progressed and adapted to a post-covid working environment. The future of water in the UK is a hot topic, and this exhibition will show exactly how that future is taking shape.”
This year’s conference theme is: “The drive to Net Zero – Opportunities for all”. The conference will review opportunities to achieve net-zero by 2030, how innovative and resilient solutions contribute to achieving this and water company/supply chain partnerships that have already begun the journey.
The range of products and services covered will be diverse and include high technology products and systems to reduce energy consumption, products with integrated energy and efficiency monitoring and control and products and services that reduce water leakage and consumption.
A wide range of presentation topics will also be available concerned with this theme. There will be a review of existing water companies’ achievements, modus operandi, and supply chain partnerships on the journey to net-zero. Also available will be a talk on energy-saving products and services that reduce emissions and products with integrated intelligence that deliver higher efficiency and energy savings.
Visitors include attendees from the UK’s utility and water supply companies, the Environment Agency and a wide range of senior decision-makers from across the water and wastewater industries with an interest in mechanical and electrical equipment and associated services.
There will also be an opportunity to celebrate young industry talent at the Young Engineer Awards and conference dinner, hosted at Telford International Centre on 10th May. This event acknowledges the vital contributions young engineers make in the industry and offers a fantastic platform to show off young talent in front of over 1,000 water industry professionals.
The three categories are Professional Young Engineer, which celebrates the exceptional work of nominees 28 years of age or younger with a formal qualification in an engineering or related subject.
The Apprentice Young Engineer recognises nominees 22 and younger who have proven engineering experience related to their field of work. They will work primarily in the workshop or the field on hands-on based tasks.
The final award commemorates Derek Jackson, an incredible engineer and once committed member of the Pump Centre Council who passed away in 2006. The Derek Jackson Award recognises a candidate whose outstanding achievements warrant recognition, and any shortlisted candidate is eligible.
The Pump Centre will also raise funds for Action For Children UK, an organisation that offers foster, adoptive and modern residential services to find children and young people safe and loving homes. Attendees can contribute to the chosen charity via a raffle held at Water Equipment Show dinner. Companies attending the exhibition have donated raffle prizes. The raffle has raised over £40,000 for causes in previous years.
Delegates will receive free entry to the conference and exhibition, including access to all technical and training sessions. Many prestigious industry members have served as silver and gold sponsors of the conference; please visit The Water Equipment Show website
