Floodex

Date of event: 18 & 19 May 2016 Peterborough Arena

FLOODEX is the trade event for flood defence and the water level management (WLM) sector looking at flood defence, prevention, mitigation and drainage.

With flooding in Britain forecast to increase and predictions of an escalation of flood instances, it’s clear that Britain faces a major problem and a need to identify the most effective solutions.

FLOODEX is not just about flood prevention, but covers WLM holistically, as many believe an integrated approach is needed to future proof Great Britain against the devastating effects of large scale flooding.

Whilst  the profile includes flood defence systems and prevention, consideration is needed to ensure the right investments are made in systems which can cope with the increasing range of water flows, as well as flood mitigation installations for those situations when water flow volumes exceed capacity.

Changes in how funding has been provided, and who have been the key decision makers for WLM investment has all too often resulted in ad-hoc interventions. Unsurprisingly these have proved to be only partially effective, shifting rather than mitigating flood risk.

Recognizing that sometimes floods just cannot be fully constrained, it has to be acknowledged that a wider, integrated approach is needed and a shift from flood control to water management which is set up to deal with higher volumes of water that results in flooding with today’s infrastructure.

FLOODEX will serve all stakeholders, providing a showcase for the supply chain companies, an opportunity for the industry to network and a platform for professionals and others to see what is being currently being done and what is likley to be available and achievable in the future.

This senior-level event will be content-rich with free to attend,  educational seminars and fantastic networking opportunities. The perfect platform to showcase products and services to a very targeted buying audience, who have qualified their interest just by being there.

FLOODEX will give you the chance to connect with key decision-makers and procurement teams from local authorities and organizations from around the country.
