The conference will be broadcast live on 15 and 16 August, and ondemand from 17 August to 14 October.

Grundfos Asia Pacific region MD Kim Jensen, said, “We have received tremendous feedback from business leaders and our customers about the insight and learnings that they have gained from attending our forum over the years. This year, we are hosting the conference online so that we can reach more industry professionals who are not able to make it to the event in person.”
“Just as how technology has changed our relationship with water, it has transformed the way we get to engage with one another. With the virtual conference, people will not only get to tap into a wealth of knowledge, but also actively participate in the discussions with our experts and other participants,” he added.
