The Premier Forum for Water Leakage and Smart Water Technologies

Welcome to the South Africa Water Leakage Summit 2023, where African water utilities and network services will meet with water leakage experts and smart water technology providers in Cape Town, South Africa, to explore efficient and cost-effective solutions for the water utilities industry.

Water is one of the most valuable resources across the globe. As rapid urbanisation has led to a rise in water demand, pressures across the water network caused by climate change and aging infrastructure have significantly impacted the availability of water. Non-revenue water (NRW) is water that is lost before it reaches end-users. Water leakage is a key contributor to global water loss, valued at $40 billion per year, which is driving the demand for smart technology solutions. South Africa is one of the most water-scarce regions in the world and will face a significant water supply deficit over the next decade due to failing water infrastructure, unauthorised connections from water distribution networks, and unsuitable metering and billing systems.

The face of water supply networks is fast changing as operators navigate through the ‘digital water age’ and introduce new technologies across their water networks with advances in IoT and AI for network automation and control to efficiently manage and reduce water leakage. As operators work to meet new regulations and leakage targets, new initiatives toward more efficient water networks have become essential to satisfy an ever-increasing demand for water. With new developments in innovative water technologies and technical know-how, recent advancements in leak detection offer new hope for water companies looking for operational efficiencies under challenging market conditions and to better manage their water networks.

The Water Leakage Summit 2023 in South Africa is set to become the region’s leading exhibition and conference exclusively for water companies and smart water technology experts to present new solutions for water leakage and to develop more intelligent systems across their water networks. The key focus for this year’s conference will be to “efficiently manage and reduce water leakage,” and the objective will be to bring water utilities and network services together with leading industry experts to collaborate and examine new opportunities in smart water technologies and to address the key challenges in water utilities from a global perspective.

Key topics on this year’s agenda include:

  • Making an economic assessment for water utility development
  • Integrating smart water technologies into existing water infrastructure
  • Strategies for managing and reducing water leakage across the network
  • Looking at real-time data and cutting-edge communication technologies
  • New technologies and know-how in IoT and AI for network automation
  • End-user case studies and how to develop an optimal network

This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders, from water utilities and network service providers to leading water leakage experts and smart technology companies, to network and build cross-market relationships and discuss the latest results in smart water networks for the benefit of the water utilities industry.
