SmartH2O Summit conference program

Smart H2O Summit has announced the preliminary line-up of sessions and speakers for its conference program taking place Aug. 17 to 19, 2015 at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco.

Featuring experts from utilities and municipalities who are leading the technology revolution and the suppliers developing systems and solutions, the three-day conference will focus on water and sewer infrastructure, long-term water supply and reuse, desalination, financing for capital improvements, the impact of big data and public understanding of water resources, systems and services.

“It is very difficult for municipalities to keep up with constantly changing technologies and it’s even more challenging to create an innovative culture that is ready to embrace new trends and get projects financed,” said John Pearson, conference program co-chair.  “We created Smart H2O Summit to provide utilities and other municipal water stewards with a unique environment to explore the opportunities and limits of new technologies of all kinds.” Pearson added that senior management will have the opportunity to network in special sessions, including panels on how to create innovation in utilities, future water pricing strategies, financing the changes needed in the network and managing the public perceptions of new technologies.

The preliminary conference program can be found on the conference website. New sessions are still being finalized.
