The International Water Association (IWA) has chosen Copenhagen, Denmark as the host destination for the world congress World Water Congress & Exhibition in 2020. With 5.000 participants, this congress is the largest of its kind, which entrenches Denmark’s leading position within water technology.
The announcement for the hosting city of WWC&E 2020 event is announced at this year’s event which took place in Brussels. Copenhagen competed with Glasgow and Prague to host the event, but in the end, Copenhagen won.
The massive global challenges within the water industry pose great demand on Danish water technology. Each year, foreign delegations visit Denmark to see how water companies work with cleaning drinking water, purification of wastewater and consequences of the climate change.
Chairman of the Danish IWA national committee, Helle Katrine Andersen, is looking forward to welcoming her industry colleagues to Copenhagen, and said, ’’We have determinedly been working on this project for several years. Denmark is known for its holistic solutions, which does not merely solve the water and climate challenges, but also creates green and vibrant cities with recreational areas and high quality of life. On that note, Copenhagen is a living water lab for innovative Danish water solutions.’’
