Don’t miss the Latin American
water event of the year!

 

With over 2000 participants and a record number of exhibitors attending the IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition 2017 in Argentina, this is the Latin American water event of the year. An exciting International Exhibition is a one-stop-shop connecting the right people with the right solutions from more than 150 leading international companies and institutions.

The IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition, held in Buenos Aires, 13-16 November, will bring together water science and research with the public and private sectors, financial institutions and policy makers, to drive water cooperation and water solutions that can be applied globally.

 

There is renewed focus on water in Latin America, as the most urbanized region on the planet, it acts as a test case for the rest of the world on how we manage water for sustainable and water-wise cities.”
