The inaugural Saudi Water Expo is set to take place alongside the second Saudi Infrastructure Expo from September 11 to 13 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center.
The event, organized by dmg events and the Saudi Contractors Authority, aims to bring together 200 local and international exhibitors, including suppliers and manufacturers, to spearhead a transformation in the Kingdom’s infrastructure landscape.
Attracting government bodies, major projects, developers, consultants, architects, utility service providers, tech giants, and procurement professionals, the three-day expo will be a crucial platform to discuss and showcase the latest advancements and solutions in the water industry.
Topics of focus will include desalination plants, water management, water supply solutions, water technology, drainage systems, sewage water technology, water treatment, soil protection, recycling, and drilling technology.
With limited freshwater resources, water scarcity remains a stark reality in the Gulf region. Ensuring sustainable access to potable water is a high priority for Saudi Arabia, especially as it advances its transformative goals under Vision 2030, prioritizing infrastructure and urban planning.
The event will assemble thought leaders, industry experts, and practitioners to align efforts in achieving Vision 2030’s ambitious national water strategy and catalyze a transformational shift in the country’s infrastructure and water landscape.
Muhammed Kazi, vice president of construction at dmg events, expressed optimism about the expo’s impact, building upon the success of its previous iteration in 2022.
