Water Connect 2021 - Future Focused

Event information

Monday 25 January – Thursday 28 January

Join the Water Innovation Network (WIN) team for a series of digital events as the water industry gears up for year two of AMP7 following a challenging and demanding 12 months.

Future focused

WIN’s annual conference, Water Connect, provides exclusive insight into the current operating environment at Anglian Water and how suppliers can align with our ambitions in the short, medium and long term.  

This year’s event will take place digitally over four days to enable guests to attend talks and workshops that are most relevant to them.

Start-ups, innovators, organisations and services across every sector, this is your call to join us to understand how we can work together to deliver against a specific set of key priorities that will be core to our focus over the coming months and years. We recognise and celebrate the value of transferable solutions and different ways of thinking as we tackle some of the most challenging issues facing our industry, region and society which have only been exacerbated over recent months.

Our focus has been established to align with the UK’s water innovation strategy and the specific needs of our region which will be realised through our Shop Window. Many suppliers will be familiar with Anglian Water’s Shop Window and its existence as a physical geography where ideas and concepts are tested to assess their viability before roll out. If we choose to take supplier ideas forward, their first port of call will be the Shop Window. The priorities below are mapped against the sector wide strategy to provide a comprehensive view of our focus areas.

These focus areas include:

  1. Exceeding customer expectations
  2. A flourishing environment
  3. Tackling climate change
  4. A resilient and intelligent water supply
  5. Enabling the workforce of the future
  6. Unlocking efficiency

We are looking for people who have passion and drive to make the world of water better. We know that we can only find solutions by working together. If you are interested in creating and exploring innovative solutions that can support our challenges, sharing emerging innovation or finding collaboration partners - Water Connect is for you.

One to one meetings

As usual, there will be an opportunity to have up to six 20 minute one-to-one sessions with any delegate, including Anglian Water specialists. These can be organised once registered for the event.
