Under the banner of ‘leading the way for a sustainable future’, Sustainabilitylive! is once again at the NEC in Birmingham, from 22nd to 24th May 2012.
The distinctive individual shows – covering the energy, water, land and sustainability sectors – each give leading companies a chance to showcase their latest products and services and do business.

All of the shows also offer free admission, so visitors looking for joined-up thinking to solve a problem across any environmental sector, will find everything they need is to hand.

The International Water and Effluent Exhibition (IWEX) highlights a new wave of innovation at the 2012 show
IWEX is the UK’s leading water industry event with its unrivalled combination of showcasing the brightest ideas, and offering a rich seminar programme with up-to-the-minute insights and advice.
The 2012 event will once again bring together companies representing the whole spectrum of invention, from small businesses to larger product and service providers, all with the common aim of developing better ways to be more water-efficient.
It will build on a fine track record of success, as demonstrated when IWEX celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011.
Clive Mottram, from Eversheds, was an IWEX 2011 visitor and said: “IWEX provided an excellent forum for a wide range of water industry stakeholders to showcase their products and expertise. The exhibition hall positively buzzed with networking and discussions around water sector issues. I look forward to attending again in future.”
A major highlight of IWEX 2012 will be the 24th Institute of Water National Drilling and Tapping Championship. This hotly-contested event sees the water companies’ top teams line up to drill and tap a 150mm diameter ductile iron main under pressure and connect a service tap.
