Call for Statements of Interest to Host the IWA Leading Edge Technology Conference 2018

This is a call for venue proposals to host the 15th edition of IWA Leading Edge Conference on Water and Wastewater Technologies (LET). Please find attached the Guidelines for Venue Proposal. Please note that the deadline for receiving Statements of Intent is 15 March 2017. 

IWA Leading Edge Conference on Water and Wastewater Technologies (LET) provides a unique platform to access the most relevant emerging science and technology applied in the water and wastewater sector. 

Through the “best of the best” offering of technical paper sessions, workshops, invited speaker sessions, and networking opportunities, the LET is the must go to event for research and development in the sector. It fulfils many roles including, but not limited to: 

  • To provide a forum where academicians, consultants, and water companies can exchange pertinent information on technology that is enhancing the treatment or quality of water and wastewater. 
  • To consolidate conferences on water and waste technology to avoid duplication of subject matter. 
  • To integrate the common technological advances between water and wastewater. 
  • To provide professional updating and learning activities for water professionals from all disciplines and organisations. 

The LET is organized by the IWA team in close collaboration with the local partner(s). Therefore, it is critical that IWA – through its Innovation and Learning Director – maintains appropriate control over the conduct of the event. The venue selection is made by the IWA Secretariat in consultation with a group of IWA members, the LET Core Group.

To ensure the necessary degree of alignment between IWA and the local partner, it is essential that the local partner is a financially viable entity, has a strong local presence and network of water professionals, and high reputation among water and development professionals.

For further information please read the attached guidelines.

For questions related to the process of the venue selection, please contact Keith Robertson (keith.robertson@iwahq.org)
