The 10th Global Leakage Summit is the world's premier global summit, designed to help water utilities develop faster and more efficient leakage management systems, that go beyond economic levels of leakage and reflect the true value of water and supply delivery targets.

As an international platform for leakage practitioners, and all those in the business of delivering improved efficiency for their particular water utility, the Global Leakage Summit draws in world-wide practitioners, from industry leaders such as; Suez Environnement, Paris ; Vienna Waterworks, Austria ; Thames Water, UK ; Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority, Cambodia ; Al Ain Distribution Company, UAE ; Oslo Water, Norway ; Scottish Water, UK ; Municipal Water, Poland ; Taiwan Water, Taiwan ; Pub Singapore, Singapore ; Anglian Water, UK and many others.

Directors, Heads, VPs and Managers of water solutions, network infrastructure, leakage, operations, engineering, business development, technology, and specialists in modelling and design, from Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Jordan, Bahrain, Burkina Faso, Chile, Portugal, Brazil, Israel, USA, Canada, Zambia, Slovenia, South Africa, Qatar, Malaysia, Japan, Norway, UAE, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Poland, Portugal, Finland among others, traveled into London from across the globe to take part in this prestigious summit.

It proved to be a high quality information-sharing summit for delegates, at both a technical and strategic level, and addressed how new concepts and technologies are being deployed for leak detection, pressure management and network optimisation, to cost-effectively address water stress and water scarcity challenges worldwide.

The World-Leading Forum for Leakage Management...

...Now In Its 10th Edition And Established As A Brand Leader - For Water Company Practitioners To Exchange Information on Topical Case Studies And Learn About Best Practice Technologies For Assessing, Monitoring And Reducing Leakage In Their Networks


  • The UK water industry under pressure - leakage is right at the top of the UK's political agenda again and the UK Water Industry has taken a pounding over the last two years.  How will the industry focus on meeting its stringent targets?
  • What can we learn from global practitioners in areas of water scarcity and population migration who have addressed the issue of managing customer demand?
  • How do water operators in megacities and with mega populations in countries like Brazil and Philippines meet demand and still run sustainable networks?
  • Can integrated network wide sensors and data communication help the industry in its drive towards 'smart water' and zero leakage by 2050? 
  • Ensuring the data is used for smart insights and actions - otherwise smart water isn't smart!
  • The technology companies are going to play a major part - what will it take in terms of advances in sensor and communication technology, pipe material and pipe repair technology to get even anywhere near zero leakage?
  • How will Brexit affect the UK and European water industry - will research and innovation and investment in assets and infrastructure suffer? What does this mean for the supply chain and UK exporters of water technologies and solutions?
  • Can the increased use of smart technology help operators understand how to monitor pressure transients and 'calm' the network to reduce bursts?
  • What have we learnt about understanding the balance between customer use, supply pipe leakage and internal plumbing losses?
  • Much-needed improvements to hydraulic model calibration and a new generation of modelling tools are required to ensure that models meet the criteria for identifying anomalies and 'hotspots' in the network
