Beachfront Bay Campus provides perfect backdrop for Water Industry Events

On Tuesday 31st January we played host to two important Welsh water industry events

Dŵr Cymru’s third annual Innovation Conference took place in the Great Hall and School of Management buildings at the Bay Campus and offered over 200 representatives from academia, SMEs, Natural Resources, Wales, Ofwat, the Drinking Water Inspectorate, Welsh Government and other water and sewerage companies, a packed programme of talks and interactive sessions exploring the theme of innovation in the industry.

The event had the dual aim of :

  • Seeking near to market technology development proposals which could potentially be adopted within the next 5 years.
  • Encouraging dialogue on research to help inform the longer term regulatory or environmental agenda in Wales.

GH043 our 350-seat lecture theatre on the ground floor of the Great Hall offered the ideal setting for the keynote sessions in the morning which were followed in the afternoon by smaller parallel sessions located in the state-of-the-art School of Management.

An innovation-focused exhibition was located along the galleries of the Great Hall offering delegates the opportunity to have lunch and network while enjoying the incredible views across Swansea Bay.

The daytime proceedings were followed in the evening by a glittering innovation awards ceremony organised by the Institute of Water’s Welsh Area Committee.

Building on the theme of innovation from the daytime event, the evening celebrations were entitled “Tomorrow’s World” and brought hundreds of industry professionals together in the Sir Stanley Clarke Auditorium for a pre-dinner drinks reception and a sumptuous three course dinner with entertainment.
