UAE, 12 August 2018: Pump manufacturer Grundfos will open up its global customer forum to the world, to enable water, environment and sustainability professionals to learn more about the future of water solutions, the company announced in a Press communiqué.

The Grundfos Forum 2018 will be broadcasting from Suzhou, China, through a virtual conference, a first for the event, the communiqué said. This will give professionals from all over the world the opportunity to hear from world-class engineers, government leaders, consultants, academics and other key decision-makers about ways to move and manage the world’s water better, under this year’s theme of ‘Intelligent Connectivity’, the communiqué further said.

Grundfos Forum 2018 Highlights

The virtual conference will broadcast live on August 15 and 16, and OnDemand from August 17 to October 14, the communiqué said. In addition to the access to talks, events and breakout sessions, participants will get to take part in the Forum’s Interactive Spaces, interact with Forum participants and chat with experts while exploring the Exhibition Area, the communiqué further said.

To encourage greater engagement, online participants will also be automatically enrolled into the Leaderboard Challenge, where points are gained through participation, the communiqué said. The top five participants will win a trip to Grundfos’ headquarters in Bjerringbro, Denmark, the communiqué further said.

Commenting on the forum, Kim Jensen, Regional Managing Director, Grundfos Asia Pacific region, said: “We have received tremendous feedback from business leaders and our customers about the insight and learnings that they have gained from attending our forum over the years. This year, we are hosting the conference online so that we can reach more industry professionals, who are not able to make it to the event in person. Just as how technology has changed our relationship with water, it has transformed the way we get to engage with one another. With the virtual conference, people will not only get to tap into a wealth of knowledge, but also actively participate in the discussions with our experts and other participants.”

According to Grundfos, participants will:

  • Have a virtual front-row seat at the Forum’s talks and events
  • Get Live Stream and onDemand access to the Auditorium and Breakout sessions
  • Explore the Exhibition Area and chat with experts
  • Receive their own Virtual Briefcase
  • Take part in the Forum’s Interactive Spaces
  • Find virtual business networking opportunities
