Grundfos is opening its global customer forum to the world through a virtual conference.

In a first for the event, the Grundfos Forum 2018 will be broadcasting from Suzhou, China via a virtual conference. This will give professionals from all over the world the opportunity to hear from engineers, government leaders, consultants, academics and other key decision-makers about ways to move and manage the world’s water, under this year’s theme of ‘Intelligent Connectivity’.

The virtual conference will be broadcast live on 15 and 16 August 2018, and OnDemand from 17 August to 14 October 2018. As well as accessing talks, events and breakout sessions, participants will also get to take part in the Forum’s Interactive Spaces, interact with Forum participants, and chat with experts while exploring the Exhibition Area.

“We have received tremendous feedback from business leaders and our customers about the insight and learnings that they have gained from attending our forum over the years,” said Kim Jensen, regional managing director of Grundfos Asia Pacific region. “This year, we are hosting the conference online so that we can reach more industry professionals who are not able to make it to the event in person.”

“Just as how technology has changed our relationship with water, it has transformed the way we get to engage with one another. With the virtual conference, people will not only get to tap into a wealth of knowledge, but also actively participate in the discussions with our experts and other participants.”

To encourage greater engagement, online participants will also be automatically enrolled into the Leaderboard Challenge, where points are gained through participation. The top five participants will win a trip to Grundfos’s headquarters in Bjerringbro, Denmark.
