Water is a critical resource for many industries and businesses. For packaged goods, food and beverage, mining, technology and manufacturing, water is part of the corporate balance sheets and water resource management is an opportunity for innovation.

Join your peers on June 23, 2016, in downtown Toronto as we talk about the use, reuse, value and cost of water across all major sectors of the Canadian economy. This is the 7th annual gathering of “water nerds” in Canada.
