SAN FRANCISCO — Smart H2O Summit announced a partnership with Isles Utilities, according to a press release.

The collaboration will work together to develop a special panel session for Smart H2O Summit’s conference program and create an “Emerging Technology Pavilion” in the exposition area, stated the release.

Isle Utilities, as a supporting sponsor of the event and an independent technology and innovation consultancy, will assemble a panel of experts consisting of panelists from leading utilities, utility technology providers and investment/financial advisors to discuss how to best achieve innovation in water utilities, reported the release.

“We believe it is important to have experts from the three key industry segments represented,” said Isle Utilities U.S. President Bill Kelly. “Any successful, new municipal project needs to have the utilities, their suppliers and the investment experts involved.”

For the “Emerging Technology Pavilion,” Smart H2O Summit will work with Isle Utilities and The Water Innovation Project to “identify companies that are at the leading edge of new technology to showcase their products and solutions at the event,” continued the release.

Smart H2O Summit will take place Aug. 17-19 in San Francisco, California, noted the release.
