I n April 2015, more than 100 speakers, 150 exhibitors and 3,000 delegates will gather at Birmingham's NEC for the launch of Utility Week Live, the new exhibition and conference for the business of utilities. The exhibition, which incorporates the long-standing IWEX show for the water sec- tor with new exhibitors and content for the energy sector, runs from 21-23 April. As well as a projected 150 exhibitors and dedicated innovation zones, it includes a keynote con- ference and three seminar theatres deliver- ing agenda-setting content over the course of the three days. The theatres, developed by the team behind Utility Week, focus on energy, water and pan-utility issues, and are free to attend for exhibition delegates. With a fantastic line-up of industry leaders, regulators and policymakers, they are a must-see for anyone concerned with the technical challenges fac- ing utilities today. Amanda Barnes, publisher of Utility Week magazine and Faversham House chief executive, said: "Utility Week Live incor- porating IWEX has been created based on feedback from the industry and the need for a dedicated event focused on the UK's world- leading water, electricity and gas utilities. The Speakers "We already run the industry's authori- tative media brand for the utility sector, namely Utility Week, as well as water titles Water & Wastewater Treatment and WET News, so it made perfect sense to incorpo- rate our existing IWEX event and create this new event dedicated to UK utilities and net- works. It will offer those working in utilities and their contractors the chance to learn and exchange cutting-edge ideas on the strategic, operational and technical side of their busi- nesses. Visitors will meet peers, partners and suppliers and gain invaluable knowledge from industry leaders in the CPD-accredited live content programmes and associated net- working initiatives." The Utility Week Live incorporat- ing IWEX exhibition and technical semi- nars are free to attend, with paid tickets available for the keynote conference (see right).
