Future Water Association Water Dragons Regional Heat, 30 June, London

The Future Water Association Water Dragon’s Awards are now in their eighth year and we are pleased to confirm that this year there will be three Regional Heats taking place. This will provide 3 exciting opportunities for companies to present their innovations to a judging panel that will include high-level Water Company representatives.

As the innovator you will first make your pitch to the Water Dragons, this will be followed by a cross examination. The Water Dragons will provide feedback and collectively select the innovation they consider has the greatest merit.

Innovative products, services or processes put before the Water Dragons must be able to demonstrate clear and distinct benefits. Presenters will need to explain how their innovation can make or save money for water companies: Have you identified the potential size and value of the market? Have you thought through how your innovation will be implemented?

The Future Water Association is looking for entries that will step up to the challenge and demonstrate how innovative the supply chain can be.
