Audience Feedback

Weng Xiaoyao, from Haicheng Investment Water
Flowtech China is the go-to event if you’re into the industry, where all the latest and greatest innovations come together.
This year, I participated in the 2023 East China Six Provinces and One City Wisdom Conference. It was a big event co-hosted by the Shanghai Water Supply Management Affairs Center and the Shanghai Water Supply Industry Association. We dug deep into the world of water and energy; the insights were seriously eye-opening.

Zhao Jun from the Shanghai Architectural Design and Research Institute
This event is a meetup spot for engineers and designers to swap their best ideas. This year, I got to talk about the “New Technology of Building Water Supply and Drainage System.” It was like lighting a spark – the insights from everyone were next level.

Zhang Ruxiu from the Shanghai Industrial Cooperation Economic Research Institute
Events like Flowtech China are about flying the flag for eco-consciousness and sustainability. We’re talking about making a real difference on a global level.

In 2023, Flowtech China joined forces with esteemed organizations like the Shanghai Water Supply Management Affairs Center, Shanghai Water Supply Industry Association, Shanghai Architectural Society Building Water Supply and Drainage Professional Committee, Shanghai Water Supply Dispatch and Monitoring Center, and ChemChina Enterprise management associations.

With the continuous expansion of the services, it is mission critical to evaluate the resources and capabilities of the international partner.

With the strong commitment for the industry advancement and customer success, the organizer of WieTec China has now established the strategic partnership with the leading exhibition group Informa Markets, which has international reach and strong track record.
