Proactive Partnerships
AWS 2017 | November 29-30 | JW Marriott Austin

Now in its 8th year, The American Water Summit is the forum for discussion and decision making at the highest level of the water sector, facilitating proactive partnerships that will form the linchpins of the business in the years to come. 

As the American water sector grapples with potential federal infrastructure initiatives and the recovery of key industrial end-markets, public and private sector thought-leaders will assess the opportunities for partnerships and technology innovation through three session strands: Emerging Opportunities, The CTO Forum, and Leading Utilities of the World

Join this select group of influencers on November 29-30th in Austin, Texas for an unrivaled networking opportunity.
