B-IWA Nocturnal

After several years of successful happy hours and minisymposia, B-IWA wanted to launch a novel concept in 2015. We were very proud to announce the first B-IWA nocturnal, which took place on May 19th, 2015 at the venue of the Colonial Palace in Tervuren. The nocturnal featured speakers from industry, policy makers and academics (click here for their presentations), following the spirit of the B-IWA objectives: bringing together and creating interactive dialogue between all stakeholders of industry, policy makers and academics active in the Belgian water sector. An event of this kind was the single water event on a Belgian level where water professionals could meet their peers.

This first edition was attended by almost 80 participants and was considered a success. It is therefor that B-IWA is proud to announce that also in 2016, a Nocturnal event will take place, this time on May 18th, at the Botanical Garden of Meise. Based on the outcomes of the previous Nocturnal, the topic of this second edition was chosen to be 'Increasing water awareness'. The evening will feature speakers and panel members from a very wide variety of fields that can help the water sector in Belgium (and beyond) to improve the way it communicates about its undoubtedly important realisations.
