Voice of the Utilities

Through years of promoting the i2i concept, Booky Oren Global Water Technologies concluded that too many vendors structure technology roadmaps without having a deep understanding of their customers’ tasks, objectives and vision.

BOGWT puts the Voice of the Utility in the center by giving water utility leaders the opportunity to share their challenges with the world. Vendors are encouraged to listen and develop technologies that fit their customers needs.

We invite you to take part and participate in the panels we facilitate in some of the world’s leading water events

World Water-Tech North America

Accelerating Adoption and Reducing Risk

30 Oct 2019

World Water-Tech North America 2019: Los Angeles is where over 250 US, Canadian and international water utilities, municipalities and industrial end-users meet to find solutions to the challenges of asset optimization, digitization, leakage, energy, and reuse. Booky will speak at the session called Head of Innovation Forum: Accelerating Adoption and Reducing Risk. The session will include the following Topics:

  1. How are forward-thinking utilities and engineering firms developing innovative programs to evaluate and pilot new technologies? What’s the key to their success?
  2. What does a successful culture of innovation look like? Which drivers take precedence: investment, incubation or creative thinking?
  3. How far is innovation in business models, execution strategies and the team more important than the technology itself?
  4. What is the next big technology we might expect to see for driving efficiency or resiliency in water treatment?
