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 11th 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


  • Public Interest Commitment (PIC) goals - a keynote presentation from 3 UK water company CEOs to explain the steps to deliver on their commitment to reduce leakage
  • Innovation, collaboration and cooperation.  Innovation is not just technology, but innovative concepts and practices - how will the 'heat-map' of company research help the industry to achieve zero leakage?
  • Integrating network data to localise leaks in fixed and mobile networks. 2018-19 saw the largest roll out of in-situ acoustic loggers in the UK water industry - how have these have helped to meet leakage targets?
  • Managing global challenges - water scarcity, drought and natural disasters, and now Covid-19.  How is the global water industry coping?
  • Managing leakage using machine learning, big data analysis and hydraulic simulation - using ever smarter algorithm technologies to analyse the mass of data coming in from all over the network, and to detect abnormal patterns outside the normal operating range
  • The rise in automation and AI will cause 75 million jobs to be lost by 2022, but 133 million new jobs will be created (WEF 2018). What effect will this have on the water industry workforce? Will the new technologies be in the hands of Gen Z?
  • Smart network infrastructure management - using big data analytics to link pipe replacement to failure rate.  How to maintain a desired level of service at a lowest asset life cycle cost?
  • How can smart networks improve performance in other areas to meet Outcome Delivery Incentives (ODIs) as well as reducing leakage and Per Capita Consumption (PCC)?
  • Bringing pipe repair into the digital age. What are the options for minimal disruption or non-intrusive pipe repairs?
