About conference

Dear Sirs,

The Croatian Water and Wastewater Group invites you to its traditional annual professional-business conference with international participation, which will be held this year in Vodice, October 7-11, under the traditional name:


This year, as every year, the Croatian Water and Wastewater Group is organizing a professional and business conference that has been recognized as a central annual event in the water industry for years and as such represents an inevitable opportunity to get acquainted with the situation in the water supply and sewage sector, as well as with news, achievements and opportunities for further development.

For more than 20 years, experts from many European countries have been gathering to address the issues of water supply, sewage and wastewater treatment. Therefore, this gathering has become much wider recognizable than only in the Republic of Croatia and as such it is one of the most important gatherings of this kind in Europe.

In addition to authors of technical papers from Croatia and the surrounding countries, there is a continuous increase in interest from foreign authors from a wider area of ​​Europe, year after year. In this way, through presentations of technical papers from different fields of the profession, the general public is informed about the latest achievements and experiences in the development and management of water supply, sewage and wastewater treatment. The largest share in the expert part of the conference consists of technical papers provided by authors from Croatia, which thus proves the fact that water management, especially the area of ​​water supply and sewage, is one of the most developed fields in the total economy of the Republic of Croatia, and that the knowledge and experience of Croatian colleagues is at the same level, as the one of their colleagues from other parts of Europe.

This year again the central events at the Conference will be the thematic roundtables, where experts from certain professional fields will discuss the most current topics with all the colleagues present, bring the topic closer to the general expert public, and thus encourage further preparation activities and the implementation of legislation and regulations.

In addition to the thematic round tables and expert presentations, lectures and discussions, the accompanying events, various business presentations and presentations of a wide range of products and services in the field of water supply and sewage are of great importance for this event. In this way, manufacturers, dealers and contractors in direct contact with the users of such products and services cooperate and present their novelties. As in previous years, this generally accepted practice continues this year, too, and again a large number of exhibitors are expected, to present their products and services, as well as various related activities.

After many years of preparation, in the wider area of ​​the Republic of Croatia, numerous investments are underway in water management, co-financed by EU funds, which, in accordance with EU directives, aim to significantly increase the standards of water supply, sewage and wastewater treatment. Such an investment booster represents certainly one of the largest development cycles in the Republic of Croatia in history. Accordingly, it is to be expected that projects and investments in progress will be presented at the Conference, with the aim of informing the expert public about the achievements and plans for the forthcoming period.

Also, a number of activities are underway aiming to improve the entire water sector and increase the standards of end users, while moving closer to the goals and achievements that Croatia wants to achieve, as a full member of the European Union. Most of this refers to a very important legislation area which has been intensively changing and adapting to EU requirements in recent years, and is directly related to the business and organization of public water service providers. Complex reform processes in the water sector of the Republic of Croatia are already underway, with the main goal of strengthening the capacity of public suppliers as a basis, in order to implement concrete and demanding investments in this sector, as well as later high quality and effective management of the already built systems of water supply, sewage and wastewater treatment.

All of the above issues will certainly mark this year's Conference, and thus contribute to the further development of the entire sector, and enable the general expert public to gain insight into the situation and perspectives that await us in the years to come.

Below is an overview of the thematic units foreseen for the collection of expert papers and the implementation of the expert part of the Conference. The aforementioned thematic units will form the backbone of the professional part of the conference, that is, the expert presentations; of course papers from other expert fields are also welcome.
