Global expo to solve water issues


Mohd Azumi: This year, we are set to host an unparalleled gathering of over 1,000 exhibiting brands and companies.

WITH water and wastewater continuing to be urgent concerns in the region, the biennial meeting of the Asiawater 2024 Expo and Forum (Asiawater 2024) has already garnered much attention from those interested in solutions.

The forum is set to take place at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) from April 23 to 25.

Asiawater 2024 is themed “Water Transformation & Climate Change: Innovation for Resilience” and aims to foster collaboration and innovation among various industry stakeholders.

Asiawater advisor and former National Water Services Commission (SPAN) chief executive officer Datuk Teo Yen Hua is confident that the expo – now in its 14th edition – will match or better the success of the one held in 2022.

“Asiawater addresses the critical need to mitigate the impact of climate change on water resources and the environment, aligning with (the goals of) the Energy Transition and Water Transformation Ministry.

“We anticipate that Asiawater will continue to play a vital role in the transformation of the country’s and region’s water sector,” he said.

In his welcome address during a recent media preview at KLCC, Informa Markets Malaysia Sdn Bhd co-chairman Gen (Rtd) Tan Sri Mohd Azumi Mohamed said: “This year, we are set to host an unparalleled gathering of over 1,000 exhibiting brands and companies, and more than 20,000 trade attendees from 61 countries, fostering a global dialogue on water and wastewater management.”

Visitors will be able to preview the list of exhibitors and their products on Asiawater’s exclusive Waterfeeds Digital Directory.

The list of confirmed exhibitors include Ebara Pumps Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Ikhua Engineering Sdn Bhd, Salcon Engineering Bhd, Ranhill Saj Sdn Bhd, Tsurumi Pump (M) Sdn Bhd, Molecor (Sea) Sdn Bhd and Technolog.

Asiawater will feature 13 international pavilions, showcasing expertise from countries such as Austria, China, Republic of Czech, Germany, India, South Korea, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkiye and the UK.

Asiawater advisor and former Indah Water Konsortium Sdn Bhd (IWK) chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Kadir Mohd Din said Asiawater was fortunate to be supported by the ministry and SPAN among other key stakeholders.

“United in our efforts, we can steer our industry towards a future characterised by sustainability and resilience,” he said.

Asiawater 2024 will see the return of Water Talks, consisting of over 50 high-calibre conferences, seminars and workshop.

Led by organisations such as SPAN, University of Nottingham and Malaysian Water Partnership (MyWP), Water a Talks will address current issues, tackle climate change challenges and present solutions through sustainable water sector transformation.

Malaysian Water Association (MWA) president Dr Mohmad Asari Daud said, “The MWA Special Training Programme will feature in-depth sessions led by experts, focusing on contemporary trends and industry best practices.

“Attendees will have the added advantage of earning Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia, further amplifying the value of their participation in this comprehensive training programme.”
