SWIG Conference, Sensing in Water 2013
Building on the success of the 2011 Sensing in Water Conference, SWIG is now planning SiW 2013 to be held on the 25-26 September 2013. Please see here for more details.
The first 2-day conference, exhibition and conference dinner was held at The Nottingham belfry hotel on the 21st and 22nd September 2011. 130 delegates enjoyed two days of great networking, heard from our presenters about best practice and new water sensing technologies and met our 28 exhibitors to discuss their water sensing needs. 90 diners attended the Conference Dinner and our thanks go to ABB Ltd who kindly sponsored the pre-dinner drinks reception and to John Gray, ex DWI, for his entertaining and thought-provoking after dinner speech.
