SMi is delighted to announce the return of the 7th Annual Smart Water Systems Conference, which will be held in London on the 25th and 26th April 2018.

As well as discussing key drivers responsible for rapid market growth, Smart Water Systems 2018 will address the increasingly large role that data and information plays in the water management industry and analyse various data strategies and the demand for real-time information.
