TORONTO, ONTARIO – January 16, 2018 – WaterTAP is gearing up to host the third annual edition of Ontario Water Innovation Week (OnWIN) in Toronto from October 22 to October 26, 2018. This week-long celebration boasts an attractive agenda, including a high-profile international conference.

In 2018, the summit will include themes of building resilience, galvanizing capital, managing technology risk, and harnessing the power of intelligent systems. Participants have come to expect an immersive agenda featuring industry leaders, focused one-on-one meetings, and targeted networking opportunities.

In complement is Water Innovation in Action (October 23), which puts the spotlight on the people, companies, and organizations that are blazing the trail for a sustainable water future for Ontario.

A suite of workshops, tours and networking events round out the week’s offerings. WaterTAP will announce new additions to the agenda in the coming weeks.

“The 2018 edition of Ontario Water Innovation Week will build upon the success of our sophomore year, bringing together participants to share the actionable ideas that are necessary to resolve the complex water challenges of tomorrow,” said WaterTAP’s President and CEO, Dr. Peter Gallant.

“OnWIN continues to mature by leaps and bounds, ensuring its status as a must-attend water industry event,” said Jennie Moss, Managing Director of Rethink Events. “We are proud to co-host World Water-Tech North America in Ontario as part of this lively week. The summit will be one of the most impactful opportunities for tech companies to be in the same room as water utilities and industrial water leaders from North America and the global marketplace.”
