The Institute of Water is running a competition to come up with a new event to portray the modern skills of water industry front-line staff.
The event will replace Drilling & Tapping – which started in 1989 and ran for 31 years – and the plans are to stage it at Utility Week Live when it returns to the NEC on 17th and 18th May next year.
The new event will be for teams of 2-4 people and must promote teamwork and reflect the current skills of the front line.
Proposals (no more than two A4 pages) should explain the methodology and list the equipment needed; diagrams are welcome.
The competition will be marked on the basis of:
• Portraying the modern skills of the front line
• Interest for the audience
• Practicality to set up any equipment in an indoor arena
• Feasibility to complete heats and finals over two days
• Cost to set up and run
The person who submits the winning entry will have the opportunity to name the event and will be invited to present the prizes in the first year.
Proposals should be submitted to email@example.com by Friday 27th August.
