WATEC 2017 calls for exhibitors and delegates

The Ghana Israel Business Chamber (GIBC) has began the process of inviting delegates and exhibitors to the globally acclaimed Water Technology and Environmental Control Conference and Exhibition (WATEC 2017) to be held in Tel Aviv from the 12-15th September, 2017. 

The GIBC offers an all-inclusive package that includes participation in the Watec 2017 Conference and Exhibition and two extra days of touristic and/or religious visits to Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, and Galilee etc. from the 11-16th September, 2017.

The Watec Conference and Exhibition is a key global event for the water and environmental control industry drawing professionals, stakeholders, policy and decision makers, innovators and sector leading companies from across the world to Israel to assess new developments and innovative solutions and predict future challenges.

The last Watec event in Israel was held in 2015 and attracted more than 10,000 participants including 95 delegations from more than 90 countries. It also had 150 speakers, 160 exhibitors and more than 1,000 B2B meetings. Watec 2017 is expected to receive about 15,000 participants including experts and industry leaders from more than 100 countries.

A few years ago Israel faced a severe water crisis that threatened not only the life of the nation but also stability in the region. Israel combatted this crisis through a multi-pronged approach that involved adaptive regulation, integrated water management, innovative solutions, the creation of a water economy and public education leading to a water saving society.

Today Israel not only exports water to its neighbours but also exports water technologies to nations around the world.

Israel is the world leader in fields such as seawater desalination technology and drip irrigation where Israel holds 30percent share of the world market. In Israel an incredible 91percent of sewage is collected and treated and 75percent is reclaimed for irrigation.

The Water Technology and Environmental Control Conference and Exhibition 2017 (Watec 2017) will dissect the Israeli way of water crisis management, elaborate on Israel’s advancements in water and environmental technology and innovation and juxtapose that against global developments and trends.
