Measurement and Testing
WWEM 2014 bigger than ever before
Sep 30 2014
On 5th and 6th of November WWEM 2014, the international Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring conference and exhibition, will be bigger and busier than ever before. The five previous WWEM events have addressed themes on testing and monitoring within the Process and Laboratory sectors, in addition to an international exhibition and scores of workshops. However, this year’s event will now include:
‘Regulation Updates for Process Operators’
The first day’s Conference will focus on the monitoring aspects of industrial and municipal monitoring, a training presentation on the Operator Monitoring Assessment, an update on the development of 3 CEN standards for the assessment of water quality monitoring equipment (auto-samplers, continuous monitors and portable monitors) and an update will also be provided for a similar project looking at CEN standards for flow monitoring devices.
‘Laboratory Techniques and Quality Procedures’
The second day’s Conference will address a laboratory analysis theme,with presentations on proficiency testing, examination of good sampling protocols, the Priority Substances Directive 2012/39/EU’ ,mobile data capture ,the efficient and intelligent approach to sample receipt and scheduling, resource management, collecting, processing and acting upon results securely managing data.
New: Flow Forum
Building on the event’s monitoring theme, the Flow Forum will take place on Wednesday 5th November including presentations from Water Companies, MCERTS Inspectors and construction partners who will share their experiences in flow measurement. Flow meter manufacturers will also present some of the latest measurement techniques and an open forum session will provide attendees with an opportunity to challenge the panel with questions and problems.
New: SMART Water Forum
Taking place on the second day of WWEM (6th Nov) the SMART Water Forum will include a UKWIR dissemination workshop, featuring a study which has been ongoing for 18 months on Instrumentation, Process Automation & Control in wastewater. This will be followed by presentations on SMART technologies, including the ‘Internet of Things’, from some of the water sector’s leading innovators.
International Exhibition – what’s new in process monitoring
Featuring over 130 stands representing more than 250 of the world’s leading providers of test and monitoring equipment and related services, the WWEM 2014 Exhibition will be free to enter for pre-registered visitors. Many of the exhibitors will launch new products at the show.
Instrument demonstration area
Another new feature at WWEM 2014 will be an instrument demonstration area where visitors can “get their hands dirty” and discuss their applications needs with technical experts and get a hands on demonstration.
Over 100 Workshops to choose from
Yes, there are over 100 workshops available representing 100 of the good reasons why WWEM is known as a ‘working event’. Careful planning is necessary if visitors wish to pick the subjects of greatest interest and make the most of their time at WWEM 2014. The Workshops run almost continuously throughout the 2 days and cover an enormous variety of subjects within the overall testing and monitoring theme. Most of the presenters are also exhibitors, all of whom are aware that the best attended workshops are those that are interesting and informative and not too promotional.
The full Workshop programme is published here.
With a heavy focus on water and environmental monitoring, the WWEM events attract delegates from all industries including regulators, industrial process operators, water utilities, accreditation organisations, commercial laboratories, instrument manufacturers, consultants, analytical service providers, researchers and academics.
Visitors to WWEM 2014 will be able to claim Continuing Professional Development (CPD) time for the event’s Conferences, Forums and Workshops. WWEM organiser Marcus Pattison says: “This is great news for the event because it provides formal recognition of the value of the many learning experiences at WWEM 2014 and provides delegates with reassurance that their visit will be worthwhile.”
The day-delegate conference rate is £55. However, registration for the event is FREE of charge and pre-registered visitors are provided with free access to the exhibition, the Forums and to the workshops, in addition to free on-site parking, and complimentary lunch and refreshments.
As preparations intensify for WWEM 2014, the organisers are urging visitors to register as soon as possible and to study the workshop and conference programme carefully, so that they can tailor their personal agenda to experience the topics of greatest interest, whilst allocating plenty of time to view the enormous quantity of new products that will be on show in the Exhibition.
Organiser Marcus Pattison said: “Whether it’s wastewater flow and quality monitoring, drinking water testing, laboratory sampling and analysis, or gas detection in confined spaces, WWEM will have something for everyone. This year’s event will be the busiest yet, so I cannot emphasise enough how important it is to plan your visit in advance – WWEM is a working event and visitors need to ensure that they make the most of everything available.”
