Africa’s leading annual water conference and exhibition is back on 31 March to 1 April 2020 in Johannesburg!

In today’s new world, long-established and proven water and wastewater utility management practices are being challenged and rightfully so!

Calls for increased adoption of more advanced solutions like digital water, reclaimed water use, decentralised treatment, to name a few, are forcing water service providers to take note.

The Water Show Africa welcomes water boards, utilities, municipalities, and large water users annually. These service providers, their partners and large end users come to the show looking for these advanced solutions. They want to improve delivery of water infrastructure, drive service efficiency and reliability, as well as keep up to date with the trends shaping today’s water future.

We are proud to have hosted Rand Water, The Department of Water and Sanitation, WSUP Kenya, the Water Research Commission, Namibia Water Corporation, Taraba State Water Supply Agency of Nigeria, eThekwini Water and Sanitation Centre of Expertise, The Department of Trade and Industry, Mhlathuze Water, Umgeni Water and the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority, to name a few.

The Water Show Africa 2020 conference will be bringing together 100+ speakers over three tracks, focusing on global trends and key strategies for end users to ensure security of water supply.

Some key themes covered in the agenda include finance and investment, technology and innovation, big data, country flagship projects, skills development, infrastructure and more. This means there’s a full and varied agenda to choose from. Download the conference brochure here.

These inspirational keynotes and pioneers are shaping the way we improve the delivery of water infrastructure and meet growing demand across Africa. See the full speaker list.
