Los Angeles – After six years in Toronto, World Water-Tech North America organizers will stage its next edition in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, on Oct. 29-30, 2019.

The annual summit attracts senior business leaders from US, Canadian and international water utilities and industrial end-users, engineering giants, technology developers and supply-chain partners seeking solutions to today’s challenges of asset optimization, conservation, leakage and reuse.

According to a news release from World Water-Tech North America organizers, the market opportunity is significant, with the North American water and wastewater market set to increase from $103.59 billion US in 2017 to 119.56 billion in 2025.


Commenting on the decision to relocate the summit, Jennie Moss, Founder and Managing Director of summit organizer Rethink Events said:

“Serving the biggest water market in the world is a responsibility we take very seriously. We’ve been listening carefully to our extensive ecosystem of past and prospective delegates, partners and advisory board members. They have defined the need for our kind of water event in the US, combining incisive debate, fresh thinking and candid case studies with the disruptive potential of the most exciting water-tech entrepreneurs, plus the key investors to bring those game-changing solutions to market.

“The summit’s agenda is coming together under the guidance of our valued advisory board, senior members from 23 water utilities and companies including IBM, IWA, Jacobs, LA Sanitation, Los Angeles Dept of Water and Power (LADWAP), Metropolitan Water District Southern California, Miami-Dade, Microsoft, NYC Environmental Protection, SUEZ and WaterStart. We welcome interest now from water industry thought leaders to join the speaking faculty, and from technology providers, water-tech innovators and supply chain partners who want to get involved.”
