Conference Brochure and Agenda



Headline Sponsor

Anglian Water

We are excited to announce that Anglian Water is our headline sponsor this year.

Anglian Water serves the largest, driest water company region in England and Wales, receiving only two thirds of UK average annual rainfall and with one of the fastest rates of new housing growth. In 2019 Anglian became the largest public interest company in the UK by changing its Articles of Association to formally enshrine the public interest within the constitutional make up of the business.

Silver Sponsors

Established for over 130 years, Methven is a global manufacturer of beautifully designed, innovative and award-winning showers, taps and valves. Methven holds three of six worldwide patents for showering technology and is committed to conserving energy and water. Its innovative shower technologies are all optimised at 9 litres per minute without any compromise on performance.

Session Sponsors

Sponsoring the Waterwise Conference is not only an opportunity to position yourself as an organisation which values water efficiency, benefit from large-scale positive publicity and learn of the latest tech developments and innovation in water, but it is also a unique opportunity to directly connect with major organisations and legislators in the UK water sector.
