To be held in tandem with POWER-GEN Middle East, the event will bring together the region’s leading plant owners and operators, consultants, utilities, investors and academics, with representatives of over 80 companies from 30 countries, the announcement added.
With the event’s focus on wastewater, Abu Dhabi Sewerage Services Company (ADSSC) is reportedly the event partner.
Dr Hisham Khatib, the Honorary Vice-Chairman of the World Energy Council, and one of the keynote speakers at the conference,, said, “By bringing cutting-edge technology together with industry experts, WaterWorld Middle East is a superb forum to promote sustainable water infrastructure development in the region.”

To meet growing demand, there’s more focus on sustainable practices, wastewater reuse and asset management – these issues will all feature strongly in WaterWorld Middle East 2014.
