Date:15 – 17 October 2018
Stand No. #240 HYDRO 2018 will be the 25th in Aqua-Media’s series of international events hosted in Europe, and will once again be the most significant conference and exhibition of the year for the global hydropower community. The annual conferences have become renowned as the most international gatherings in the profession, with delegations representing all countries with major hydro development programmes underway. An exchange of experience is encouraged on practical and topical issues,and an international steering committee works with the Aqua-Media team to ensure the high quality of papers accepted. The event will bring together delegations from around 75-80 nations, sharing the common interest of advancing hydro development in all parts of the world. Lessons from past experience will be reviewed, achievements will be showcased, and new challenges will be tackled. The conference sub-title ‘Progress through Partnerships’ highlights the underlying theme of international collaboration which will be the basis for discussions. The location aims to facilitate participation from more countries in the Central Asian and eastern European region. Emphasis will be on helping the less developed countries to unlock their hydro potential to advance socio-economic development, on cross-border collaboration and regional projects, and on maximising the potential to increase hydro capacity in the industrialized countries. Timely maintenance of existing hydro assets is another key theme, along with designing for the sustainability of greenfield projects. We are looking forward to welcoming your team in Gdansk.
