Growing stronger year by year, Vietnam’s leading international water resources and technology event – VIETWATER 2018 will take place at Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC) from 7th to 9th November, 2018.

A decade of industry support and engagement

As Vietnamese cities and industries grow, the water needs for the country is changing – from a predominantly agricultural base to the needs of industries – process water. This, on top of the continually expanding requirement for clean drinking water, both for the urban and rural dweller. Water challenges can never be fully addressed without discussing sewage – a parallel need which sees an expanding industrial waste management demand in addition to the increasing needs of growing cities for waste management, logistics and new waste treatment processes to nurture a long term sustainable living environment.

Vietnam’s water industry is targeted in 2025 to achieve no less that 95% of citizens having access to clean water; with a clean water loss rate targeted of under 15%. Sewage management – also a growing issue, is targeted to serve more than 70% of urban and developed areas.

This continual demand has supported the growth of VIETWATER – the premier annual event in Vietnam for water resources and technologies. This year, a new dedicated waste technology and waste management sector has been added to support Vietnam’s industrialization and urbanization.

VIETWATER 2018, marking a ten year growth journey servicing Vietnam’s water industry, with the new Waste Management exhibition profile this year is expected to occupy 13,000 square meters of exhibition area and feature over 500 exhibitors with an expected attendee turnout of 15,000 in 2018.

VIETWATER 2018 – one of the most international trade events in Vietnam.

This event is expected to welcome 13 international group from UK, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Korea, Netherlands, China, Taiwan and Singapore. Alongside these large group pavilions, many leading brand names will be present at VIETWATER2018 such as Tsurumi Pump, Tan A Dai Thanh, Tabuchi, Sawatech, Goshu Kosan, Vucico, Viet An Environement, Vinaworldlink, Binh Minh Plastic, JFE Engineering, ARK,HCP, Kobelco Eco Solutions, Dow Chemical, Balem. As we progress closer to the show dates, more market leaders will be expected to make their presence known at the event.

Enhancing knowledge opportunity

At VIETWATER 2018, visitors will have opportunities to participate in many insightful seminars. A pre-event seminar will be held on August 8th, 2018 in Hanoi with the theme: “Smart Water Management - Towards Sustainable Development”. The seminar in Hanoi has garnered support from many professionals in the industry and also most importantly, support from the Vietnam Water Supply & Sewerage Association (VWSA), Ministry of Construction (MOC), Department of Water Resources Management, Ministry of Natural Resources & Environment (MONRE). The conference offers participating delegates a comprehensive insight into Vietnam’s water operation & management and will be a primer for Vietwater 2018 in Ho Chi Minh later in the year.
