Between 24 September and 1 October 2017, the city of Porto will transform itself into the European capital of water and innovation. All events are free (*), but places are limited. Don’t wait – take advantage now of our special rates at recommended hotels.
Three large events, Mayors&Water, the EIP Water Conference and Water Innovation Lab, all happening at the same time, will be bringing over 800 participants to the city. These include CEO and technicians from managing entities, political leaders, regulators, representatives from industry and agriculture, researchers, technology companies, start-ups, SME, investors and young professionals.
This initiative is organised by Porto City Council, through Águas do Porto, with institutional support from the European Commission and the Portuguese Government.
Local and foreign opinion makers and idea generators from the field of water and innovation will get together to discuss responses to the issues thrown up by the revolution currently taking place in the sector. With a dual objective always in mind: breaking down the barriers to innovation and creating business opportunities.
Water & People, which involves a range of activities that aim to involve the general public in the whole idea of water and innovation, is the name of the initiative that cuts across all these events. It includes street entertainment and performing arts in Porto’s downtown area and also Aquaporto – Water Festival 2017, in the City Park.
Get ready because there are going to be some surprises!
