The Expo 2020 Water Week brought businesses together in an effort to create new opportunities for communities, while also improving water resources and ecosystems.

Wilo Middle East, one of the leading manufacturers of pumps and other water treatment solutions, participated at Expo 2020 Dubai’s Water Business Forum on March 22, 2022, in light of the Expo Water Week and the United Nations-led World Water Day. Rishi Bhojwani, Service Director at Wilo MENA, took part in a panel discussion themed ‘Future Development of Water as a Source of Connectivity,’ which was held in the Estonia Pavilion.

The Expo 2020 Water Week brought businesses together in an effort to create new opportunities for communities, while also improving water resources and ecosystems. Wilo's participation in the forum intended to foster partnerships and harness innovation, as well as to discuss and address issues related to water access, management, and distribution in a sustainable way.

The theme, ‘Future Development of Water as a Source of Connectivity,’ discussed a range of topics such as innovations to advance water sustainability, port development and maritime transport connectivity, and accessibility to water for urban and rural communities. The session further concluded with a Q&A session, where participants actively interacted with the panellists.

Rishi Bhojwani, Service Director at Wilo MENA stated: “It is a great honour for us to be participating at the Expo 2020’s Water Business Forum. We believe water management will be radically changed by resource scarcity, climate change, and rising urbanisation in the future. Moreover, the treatment and transportation of drinking water and sewage are becoming increasingly complex and technologically advanced. As water infrastructure has to be sustainable and reliable for the future, Wilo has been constantly working to create solutions that tackle water management issues, which is why we are excited to participate in the Water Business Forum. This is also an opportunity for us to build connections and partnerships, to resolve and implement innovative solutions to manage and supply water.”

The special Water Week at Expo 2020 allowed citizens, stakeholders, and constituents to discover ways to preserve and sustainably manage water. In addition, the Water Business Forum aims to highlight progress and best practices in ensuring clean and adequate water for people, industries, and the planet. Wilo's participation in Expo 2020 Dubai marked another milestone in the firm's success, as it is one of the largest events in the region.
