Global water events 2020: a rescheduled list

2020: New dates for water events

The spread of COVID-19 has had a major impact on social gatherings of all sizes, from local parties all the way up to the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship.

As Europe locks down to curtail the spread of the virus, multiple nations have prevented gatherings, from over 1000 people right down to groups of more than two people.

To keep their visitors safe, like many other sectors the global water market has rescheduled many water events to later in the year.

The rescheduled event dates signify that face-to-face meetings will still have great value and play a role in how the global water market does business.

Research reported in Havard Business Review and published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology found that face-to-face requests were 34 times more likely to garner positive responses than emails.

Below we have listed the major water events that have been rescheduled: their original date and location and the revised dates.

We will update this page weekly, as there are changes, but please continue to get in touch if there are others to add to the list.
