IWC International Water Conferences

IWC International Water Conferences is the foundation of the Royal NetherlandsWater Network (KNW) which organizes international conferences on behalf of KNW. Since 1984 the foundation has organized a large number of international conferences focussing on topics such as drinking water, wastewater and water management.

IWC Conferences organises international conferences for professionals in the water sector for business opportunities and networking. We make it possible for anyone involved in the sector to plan and hold a successful international event in the Netherlands. IWC is about meeting, exchanging experiences and sharing best practices among watersector professionals. IWC activities encourage and support the international network of watersector professionals in order to develop solutions for resilient cities and circular economy and to emphasize the importance of the Dutch watersector.

We organise conferences for members of KNW and other water professionals around the world. This involves bringing experts, stakeholders, and other interested parties together to facilitate knowledge exchange in the water sector, and between water professionals.

One of the main events we organize is the biennial Amsterdam International Water Week. We work together with different international water associations to plan and run this internationally recognised event. Water professionals from the Netherlands and from all ove the world are given the opportunity to present their work at Aquatech Amsterdam RAI.

In addition, we also offer our 30 years of experience to others in the water sector who are planning specialised conferences and events. We help water professionals in the Netherlands organise conferences or workshops as well as take care of the logistics, such as accommodations and registration. We can also take on a part of the financial risk after approval of the budget and fee. This allows water professionals to concentrate on the scientific content. Our experience in the industry and constant drive for innovation ensures every conference we run is a success, and helps to advance the water sector.
