THE WATER SHOW AFRICA POSTPONED

 
In light of the recent global developments around the COVID-19 virus, Terrapinn has been working closely with our key event partners to ensure the best possible delivery for the 2020 edition of The Water Show Africa.
 
Whilst South Africa has deployed the strictest medical and hygiene protocols, we fully recognise that we have a high majority of key participants significant to the event’s success that are unable to travel due to restrictions in their home countries.
 
Under this consideration, The Water Show Africa is being postponed from 31 March - 1 April to 20-21 August 2020. The event will again take place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
 
Our decision comes after much deliberation and consultation with industry stakeholders, who have strongly endorsed our prioritisation of the collective interests of both the global exhibitors and the key buyers from the region.
 
We appreciate your support and understanding and look forward to welcoming you to The Water Show Africa this August.

WHAT IS THE WATER SHOW AFRICA?


The Water Show Africa - Africa's leading conference and exhibition for water professionals and large end users.


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, decentralized treatment, to name a few, are forcing water service providers to take note.


The Water Show Africa welcomes utilities, municipalities and large water users annually. 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.


Over the last 13 years, hundreds of exhibitors have either initiated or closed deals at our show. Our event is a multi-streamed exhibition with hundreds of attendees and a strategic conference. The conference focuses on global trends and key strategies for end users to ensure security of water supply.


Combining our history with our passion for innovation, we are committed to bringing you a unique event to promote your brand, generate and implement new ideas and source new business opportunities to spearhead growth.


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, The Department of Trade and Industry, Mhlathuze Water, Umgeni Water,  to name a few..

WATER IN AGRICULTURE

 

 

Water use in agriculture is at the core of any discussion of water and food security. Agriculture accounts for 70% of all water Withdrawals globally. Irrigated land is more than twice as productive as rain-fed cropland, yet the efficiency of water use in agriculture still looms large.

To help address the challenges and opportunities in water in agriculture, The Water Show Africa brings you the Water in Agriculture workshop.

 

 

 

WATER IN MINING

 

 

The water and mining space is highlighy competitive with several unique challenges and opportunities that can drive the sectors forward. The key is to generate actionable and practical solutions that are responsible and sustainable. This implies leadership, innovation and a deep understanding of technology and engineering. But above all, it implies the ability to build solid partnerships, overcome challenges and work towards a united, skilled and flourishing industry.

These sessions dive deep into the solutions and challenges of managing mine water in a water-scarce country with a turbulent past.
