The Water, Wastewater & Environmental Monitoring exhibition opens in Telford next month.
This year’s Water, Wastewater & Environmental Monitoring (WWEM) exhibition – boasting eight conferences, more than 80 workshops and over 140 stands – will take place at the Telford International Centre from 2-3 November.
Industry professionals, regulators and academics from around the world will be checking out the latest developments in regulations, technologies, methods and standards in laboratory, process and environmental monitoring.
WWEM visitors include those responsible for monitoring natural waters, process water, drinking water and wastewater.
There is also a Gas Detection Zone for those working in confined spaces and other areas where toxic or explosive gases have the potential to accumulate.

The first day of the CPD-certified conference will address a laboratory environmental analysis theme: ‘Priority pollutants legislation: issues for industry and potential solutions’.
On the second day, the focus will be ‘Resilience of sensor networks’ – in the morning session, and the ‘maintenance of sensors’ will be in the afternoon.
The exhibition will also feature international providers of testing, analysis and monitoring equipment, and related services.
Many companies, including ATi, ABB, Cooper Environmental, Envitech, PPM, Pulsar, Vega, Technolog and Bell Flow Systems, will launch new products at the show.
The door is open
In addition, there are over 80 free walk-in, walk-out workshops, which will operate from eight different locations within the exhibition hall.
In general, the themes of the workshops on the first day will be process monitoring and those of the second day will focus on laboratory analysis.
Elsewhere, the IWA Conference will provide an update on how the Internet of Things (IoT) and data collection are affecting the management of water and wastewater, and how it will develop in the future.
The IWA Conference attracts delegates from around the world and will feature speakers from 14 different countries.
The CIWEM conference will also run over two days with industry professionals presenting their views on how the water and environment sector will look in 2050.
Discussions will include latest innovations, including built environment smart cities, energy and climate change, processed water, water resources, waste and resource, and management and regulation.
WWEM 2016 has become the major global event for anyone involved with water testing and environmental analysis
Organiser Marcus Pattison
British Water and Cranfield University will run a workshop entitled ‘Monitoring for hydraulic fracturing’ and EFASIG, a special interest group within the British Mass Spectrometry Society, will address a variety of subjects related to environmental analysis.
There will also be a Flow Forum (2 November) on flow monitoring and area velocity flow measurement, and a BIM Awareness Day (3 November) organised by the Pump Centre on building information modelling.
“WWEM 2016 is set to be an enormous event,” says organiser Marcus Pattison. “Major organisations are co-locating their events with WWEM and as a result of this synergy, WWEM 2016 has become the major global event for anyone involved with water testing and environmental analysis.”
Pre-registered visitors (www.wwem.uk.com) will receive free parking, lunch and access to the exhibition, workshops, demonstration area, the Environmental Lab Analysis conference, the Pump Centre BIM event, and the Flow Forum.
