Grundfos Forum Opens Virtual Conference

09 August 2018

Pump manufacturer Grundfos has announced that it is opening up its global customer forum to the world. Water, environment and sustainability professionals will now have the opportunity to learn more about the future of water solutions. 

A first for the event, the Grundfos Forum 2018 will be broadcasting from Suzhou, China through a virtual conference. This will give professionals from all over the world the opportunity to hear from world-class engineers, government leaders, consultants, academics and other key decision-makers about ways to move and manage the world’s water better. The discussion for the conference follows this year’s theme of ‘Intelligent Connectivity’. 

The virtual conference will broadcast live on the 15th and 16th August, and OnDemand from August 17th to October 14th. In addition to accessing the talks, events and breakout sessions, participants will get to take part in the Forum’s Interactive Spaces, interact with Forum participants, and chat with experts while exploring the Exhibition Area. 

To encourage greater engagement, online participants will also be automatically enrolled into the Leaderboard Challenge, where points are gained through participation. The top five participants will win a trip to Grundfos’ headquarters in Bjerringbro, Denmark. Kim Jensen, Regional Managing Director of Grundfos Asia Pacific region, said, “We have received tremendous feedback from business leaders and our customers about the insight and learnings that they have gained from attending our forum over the years. This year, we are hosting the conference online so that we can reach more industry professionals who are not able to make it to the event in person.” 

“Just as how technology has changed our relationship with water, it has transformed the way we get to engage with one another. With the virtual conference, people will not only get to tap into a wealth of knowledge, but also actively participate in the discussions with our experts and other participants.”
