The Global Water Industry has never faced so many challenges as it has during the first 3 years of this decade, many due to the effects of climate change, others caused by natural and man-made disasters. 

We have endured a major global pandemic, a war in Europe, droughts, cyclones, floods and earthquakes – damaging infrastructure, disrupting water supplies and interrupting network operations to address leakage. 

But we have also seen how the water industry has met some of these challenges – with collaboration as the key: collaboration between water utilities, collaboration between utilities and the supply chain, and joint utility and university research projects.  All have come together to advance the science and technology needed to identify, monitor and locate leakage more quickly and to reduce it to increasingly lower levels.

Expert Speakers From Around The Globe

The Global Leakage Summit returns to London on March 11-12, 2025  at the Thistle Hotel (formerly Amba), Marble Arch, London, for its 14th year, bringing to delegates the usual mix of top quality UK and international water utility speakers it has become renowned for.

Join our line-up of expert practitioners from Australia, Chile, Colombia, France, Ireland, New Zealand, Portugal, UK, and USA. We will hear how they have overcome their particular challenges to reduce leakage from their networks and continue to meet customer demand.

Our sponsors and exhibitors will, as always, represent the best of the industry’s supply chain providers, and delegates will be able to benefit from visiting an exhibition hall showcasing the latest in state of the art technologies, software and services.

The Global Leakage Summit is now a well established brand, recognised as a world leading event for this speciality sector, publicising the ‘hot topics’ of the day - and disseminating experiences and solutions to addressing them - to water industry practitioners across the globe.

Don’t miss the 2023 Summit – make 5-6 September 2023 a diary date and register now!


The World-Leading Forum for Leakage Management...

...This Conference Is Now 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

Key Issues for Global Leakage Summit 2024

  • What has changed since the 2023 Summit? The ‘new kids on the block’ for breakthroughs on network operations and leakage technology
  • Customer side leakage - ‘the challenge still in front of us’. Using smart meter data to reduce customer side losses losses and improve understanding of key water balance components
  • ‘Smart is at the Heart’ - how do we adopt and implement smart programmes in a changing landscape? UK and European case studies on the impact of ‘smart’
  • Meter errors - Big deal or Not? What is the impact of meter errors on reducing trunk main leakage?
  • The benefits of community involvement – Australian and New Zealand case studies showing how innovative solutions have helped customers and communities adapt to a water- stressed environment
  • Getting the most out of ‘Smart DMAs’ – next generation network surveys and forecasting models to predict expected bursts
  • Can more research and innovation lead to a breakthrough in achieving the leakage goal?
  • Better Infrastructure for leak prevention - what industry standards are already in place and what needs to be improved?
