In early November, the world’s water sector came together to share knowledge and experience in all matters relating to the testing and monitoring of water, and with the collection transmission and management of data. Conference delegates, speakers, workshop attendees, exhibitors and delegates all hailed WWEM 2016 to be an enormous success. Expressing his delight, WWEM Organiser Marcus Pattison said: "Visitor numbers were up 15% in 2014, so we are thrilled to have grown participation by a further 5% and I would like to thank the organisers of the conferences and workshops that took place alongside WWEM 2016 for helping to make this such a useful event for every visitor."
The WWEM events were created to provide anyone with a professional interest in testing and monitoring of water and environmental samples with a unique opportunity to see the whole sector in one place at one time. As a result, WWEM visitors included those responsible for monitoring natural waters such as groundwater, rivers, lakes and marine water, in addition to process water in applications such as drinking water, wastewater and industrial manufacturing and processing. There was also a Gas Detection Zone for those working in confined spaces and other areas were toxic or explosive gases have the potential to accumulate.
WWEM 2016 visitors came from a broad spectrum of industries and sectors including regulators, government, manufacturers and process operators, water utilities, accreditation organisations, commercial laboratories, instrument manufacturers, consultants, analytical service providers, researchers and academics.
With 8 Conferences, more than 60 Workshops and over 140 Exhibition stands, WWEM 2016 offered something for everyone.Click here to view WWEM 2016 Exhibition Review
