Sponsorship & Exhibition

What is the WISA Biennal Conference & Exhibition?

The water sector is poised to attack the water crisis and implement policies, projects and new technologies that can solve many of our problems. It is now time to reflect on the current position that our sector is in and plot the course to the desired destination.

The WISA Biennial Conference & Exhibition is one of the largest gatherings where people from all spheres of the water sector get together to share their expertise, knowledge and find probable solutions to our ongoing water challenges.

It is the most beneficial networking event within the water sector, and is a huge marketing opportunity, and stakeholder influencer. Our conference theme in 2024 is “Turn the Tide”. A wide range of topics will be covered in multiple parallel sessions and we aim to attract more than 2000 delegates, with representation from national and local government, as well as several international delegations.
