The Event

Part 1 - Networking

On arrival there will be a chance for innovation filled minds to discuss the future over lunch. This is a great opportunity for members and non-members to network and make new contacts in an informal setting.

The shortlisted South East Area Innovation Award 2018 finalists will have stands set up and will be able to start telling people about their superb innovations.


Part 2 - South East Area Innovation Awards 2017

This is the part where we invite members and non-members to play a role in deciding the winner of the South East Area Innovation Award 2018.

Each of the shortlisted applicants will individually ‘pitch’ their innovation to the audience and a panel of judges in their own allocated time slots.

After hearing from all the applicants the audience will then be asked to vote on which innovation they thought was the best. Their votes will shortlist the top 2 applicants and the winner will be awarded following a judge’s discussion.

The winning application will go on to represent the South East Area at the Institute of Water National Innovation Awards and will be invited to attend the President’s Dinner in Glasgow in June 2018.

Presentations and shortlisted entrants will be confirmed nearer the time.
