#1 Resumption of Face-to-Face Interactions

Solutions & Technology

While the world has stood still the last few years and gotten used to virtual zoom meetings, nothing beats the exhilaration of boarding a plane and flying to an overseas venue for face-to-face intellectual discussions and engagements with peers.

After four years, SIWW finally returns as an in-person event with over 15,000 international attendees expected to descend on our shores. What better way to meet fellow leaders and experts than in sunny Singapore, at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre – right in the heart of the iconic Marina Bay Sands!

#2 Rich Offering of Diverse Urban Water Content

Solutions & Technology
At SIWW2022, immerse yourself in a wide spectrum of knowledge, solutions and case studies presented by global experts in their fields. With a line-up of 80 sessions delivered over 4 power-packed days, topics presented will cover perennial favourites such as water treatment and distribution, used water management, and water quality and health as well as emerging themes such as nexus and circularity, coastal protection, climate adaptation, climate mitigation, decarbonization and digital water.

“It’s not what you know, but who you know”

SIWW2022 offers many opportunities to connect, renew old acquaintances and build new partnerships. Here’s what in store:
  • Tee-off at SWA Golf @ SIWW2022 on Sunday, 17 April morning, the perfect social gathering over 18 holes in the newly renovated Singapore Island Country Club golf course. This will be followed by a networking lunch.

#7 Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize Lecture and Award Ceremony

Solutions & Technology

Professor Kazuo Yamamoto of Japan has been awarded the Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize for 2020 for his pioneering work in developing the submerged membrane bioreactor (MBR). The global application of submerged MBR technology has fundamentally transformed the sewage treatment process and improved the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

Professor Yamamoto will be delivering his Prize lecture on Monday, 18 April afternoon. In the same evening, he will be receiving the Prize Medallion and certificate from Mdm Halimah Yacob, the President of the Republic of Singapore at the Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize Award Ceremony and Banquet at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia.
