Strengthening Partnerships: SWIG and W-CRF Forge Closer Ties for Member Benefits

As many of you already know, SWIG plays a crucial role in the water industry by promoting innovation and collaboration. But did you know that SWIG is also the parent organisation for the Water Control Room Forum (W-CRF), which boasts 17 water companies in its membership.

Following feedback from our last conference we are offering 2 free delegate tickets to all our W-CRF member companies to foster greater participation and knowledge sharing from a more diverse audience.

Here's why this is such good news: 1. Maximising Knowledge Sharing: SWIG workshops are a treasure trove of insights, innovations, and trends in the water industry. With two delegate tickets, water companies can now send more representatives to these workshops, maximising the knowledge they can bring back and apply to their operations, along with the opportunity to inform the community about the changing needs of the water sector.

2. Networking: Building a network of like-minded professionals is essential in any industry. By having more delegates at SWIG workshops, water and wastewater companies will be able to connect with a wider range of experts, fostering relationships that could lead to fruitful collaborations.

3. Staying Informed: The water industry is constantly evolving. By attending SWIG workshops, everyone can stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in sensors, data, and technology, ensuring each water and wastewater company remains at the forefront of innovation.

That's not all!!

We're also pleased to announce that W-CRF is reciprocating this collaboration by offering a unique opportunity for SWIG members. W-CRF will now provide a limited number of SWIG members with the chance to have complimentary tabletop displays at W-CRF forums during lunches. These forums are hosted by various water and wastewater companies twice a year and are attended exclusively by water and wastewater company employees.

What's in it for SWIG members? 1. Visibility: The tabletop displays offer your company a platform to showcase its products and services directly to end users.

2. Engagement: Engage in meaningful conversations with industry experts, gain insights into their needs, and find potential partners or clients.

3. Exposure: Your company will gain exposure at these forums, helping you build brand recognition and establish a strong presence in the industry.

To take advantage of this fantastic opportunity, all you need to do is get in touch with Hannah at Due to limited spaces, we will be managing requests to ensure all SWIG members have equal opportunity to exhibit at W-CRF forums. The next forum is being held in Reading, hosted by Thames Water, on Thursday 16th November, so do let us know soon if you're interested in a tabletop space.

These steps have largely been shaped based on the invaluable feedback we've received from our SWIG events. Your input has been instrumental in guiding our efforts to create more meaningful and beneficial opportunities for our members. We're committed to continuously improving and enhancing your experience, and your feedback remains a vital part of this journey. We will be reviewing the effects of these changes in July 2024, so we encourage you to seize these opportunities and make the most of your membership with us.

We hope to see you all at a workshop (or forum!!) soon!
