“The conference was great, the presentations were very interesting, the panel discussion was absorbing and the overall organisation was extraordinary.”

2 days, 25 guest speakers, 245 delegates and innumerable hours of hard work made the Innovyze UK & European Conference 2019 a resounding success. Esteemed guests travelled from far and wide only to be greeted with pouring rain in Birmingham. But spirits were not dampened - it wouldn’t be an Innovyze event without the presence of water after all.

On day 1 our delegates attended two parallel streams focusing on storm, sewer & flood and water distribution solutions. They were treated to talks from RAA Ltd, Optimatics, Atkins, WSP and AECOM, among others.

Later in the day, delegates enjoyed a drinks reception where they could network with Innovyze experts, fellow attendees and guest speakers. Conversations (among other things) were in full flow with animated discussions taking place on the innovative ways Innovyze solutions are being used to solve complex water challenges.

“Excellent conference and brilliant presentations.”

Weatherwise, day 2 opened on a brighter note as Storm Gareth moved away, and attention was focused on drainage design and asset management solutions, with guests treated to talks from CIRIA, Arup, CIWEM, RPS Water and more.

“A very well structured 2-day conference.”

Steve Dunnigan, Innovyze VP for EMEA summed up the experience: “The value of getting together with peers, industry experts and fellow Innovyze users over two days in Birmingham cannot be overstated. The event gave everyone a terrific opportunity to exchange views and opinions, as well as learn more about the state of the industry, and how technology can empower their businesses.”

“A wonderful event for showcasing all that can be done with your software and the many environments it can be used in.”

The Innovyze UK & European Conference 2019 was a real testament to the expert knowledge of our ever growing user base. This event wouldn’t have been possible without our guest speakers and our wonderful delegates. We cannot thank them enough. Here’s to 2020!
