Your badge and conference documents will be available from the registration desk from Sunday 13th October. You will not be able to enter the conference or exhibition until you have collected your badge, and you must wear it at all times when in the exhibition or conference sessions.
No. The events are organized in a way that the exhibition and technical sessions complement each other. Exhibitors can attend the technical sessions and identify potential clients or future business opportunities and delegates have the opportunity to visit the exhibition stands in between the technical sessions during the refreshment breaks. In our experience, this leads to more genuine business relationships being developed.
We do not offer one-day passes to the event. In special circumstances, and at our discretion, we may be able to offer two-day passes. Please contact us to discuss this.

The Aqua~Media International team, with the support of the Malaysian Government, the Malaysian Committee on Large Dams, and the State Power utilities, welcomes the global water and energy community to the vibrant, multi-cultural city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Peninsular Malaysia, as well as Sarawak and Sabah, have wide experience of large and small hydropower development and multipurpose dams. Study tours are being planned to some of the large cascade developments in peninsular Malaysia, and to some of the large storage schemes under development in Sarawak as part of the SCORE initiative (Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy). Hydropower supplies about 20 per cent of Malaysia’s approximately 34 GW of installed capacity, with hydro supplying more than 20 TWh/year. The Government is strongly committed to increasing the share of renewable energy in the country’s generation mix, with a target to add 4 GW of renewables across the three states by 2030.
The country has about 62 large dams. The most recently completed on Peninsular Malaysia are the Puah dam for the 250 MW Hulu Terengganu powerplant (completed in 2014), and Susu RCC dam for the 372 MW Ulu Jelai hydro plant (commissioned in 2016) The latest large scheme going ahead in Sarawak is the 188 m-high Baleh CFRD, following the completion of Bakun and Murum. Some of the most important schemes in the country will be visited during post-Conference study tours.
