Vietwater is Vietnam's international water supply, sanitation, water resources, and purification event. This is the 11th time Vietwater has been held by UBM Asia, with the support of the Vietnam Water Supply & Sewerage Association (VWSA) and the Ministry of Construction.

Almost all of these exhibitors come from Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, and China. The exhibitors showcase products and technology for desalination, sustainable water supply, industrial and urban water management, urban waste treatment, water storage, and wastewater treatment.

Numerous products of exhibitors applied Industry 4.0 technologies like cloud computing, 3D printing, AI, and the Internet of Things, which can be used alongside data collection and processing in water supply and drainage systems. Besides, numerous smart equipment such as smart valves, digital data loggers, and equipment to detect leakage have been displayed at the exhibition.

Cao Lai Quang, president of the VWSA, said, “With speedy urbanisation, Vietnam needs to develop its water sewage and treatment systems. The water sector targets 95-100 per cent of people having access to clean water in 2025, with a water loss ratio of less than 15 per cent, along with 70 per cent coverage of water drainage systems and up to 80 per cent of water in trade villagestreated.”

In the framework of the three-day event, a conference will be held under the theme “Water Management towards Sustainable Development Goals”, and another on Vietnamese water technology.

The annual Vietwater exhibition has been organised in the context that Vietnam’s production capability for smart water management products is still limited. Smart systems require a large amount of data, which can be difficult to gather and manage. Supervisory control and data acquisition systems need to be upgraded for better data gathering and water network management.
