Your badge and conference documents will be available from the registration desk from the day before the conference begins. 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 HYDRO, AFRICA and ASIA 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 before travelling to the event.

The host city for 2020, Strasbourg, is on the Rhine, one of Europe’s major ‘hydropower rivers’, and is very close to the borders of both Germany and Switzerland, so there will be plenty of local technical expertise to share with participants.
