Why should you attend?

You’ll be able to engage with experts and consultants, harvesting advice on what your could and should be doing, especially in the lkely event that SuDS becomes mandatory for all new projects.

Network with your peers, find out what their plans are and share ideas.

Talk to the people and organizations on the exhibition stands, who can help you deliver your planned drainage solutions with the latest equipment, technology, services and knowledge.

You’ll be able to talk to a wide range of suppliers and expert advisers that would normally take you months to get around; trade shows are the most productive use of your time. Especially if you are thinking of changing or looking for a new supplier.

It’s one or two days out of your year that could continue to pay dividends for months and even years to come, whilst making you more effective, efficient and possibly even save you money.


Why should you know about SuDS in construction, for future reference.

Aside from the fact that new developments should be planning adequate drainage, to cope with extreme weather conditions and surface water runoff, many see SuDS as the way forward. After the Welsh government made it mandatory for new developments, it could be only a matter of time before England follows suit. This si your opportunity to talk to drainage and SuDS experts.

If SuDS were to become mandatory in England, developers would have to work closely with infrastructure engineers, developers, architects, planners and SABS in order to include and incorporate effective SuDS to the planned development. This is important for minimising the potential loss of land in a development and maintaining the project’s commercial viability. The use of porous surfaces, swales and SuDS used to drain roads and roofs will reduce the loss of available land and will not affect the commercial viability of projects.


In Wales, the new legislation which is a part of Schedule 3 of the Flood and Water Management Act (2010) requires a shift from below-ground, piped drainage infrastructure and single-point storage towards open and green forms of water conveyance, treatment, storage and disposal.  From the 7th January 2019, any new schemes must manage water on or as close to the surface and source of runoff as possible. Pollution must also be managed at source so that it does not require engineered downstream drainage infrastructure to treat it.

Water Dragons event to be hosted at Floodex!

The Future Water Association have confirmed that Floodex will be hosting one of their Water Dragon events at this year’s show.

Inspired by BBC’s Dragons’ Den, the Future Water Association has appointed a panel of Water Dragons – senior water industry executives – to sit in judgment on innovations presented by Future Water Association members and non-members alike. If your company has an idea that you believe will help meet the current and future challenges faced by the water utilities, water retailers, the supply chain and the regulators, we’d love to hear from you.

Water Dragons has become the main innovation award for Future Water Association. Innovative products, services or processes put before the Water Dragons must be able to demonstrate clear and distinct benefits and presenters will need to explain how their innovation can make or save money for their clients.
