"Water Middle East"

International experts have predicted that there would be a global water shortage by 2010, especially in the Middle East region. As a result, there is a need for more sophisticated water technologies for effective water resources management. To address these problems, an exhibition and conference named "Water Middle East", was held in Bahrain from 6 to 8 October, 2003.

The event was fully supported by the Ministry of Water & Electricity and Ministry of Commerce & Industry in Bahrain, and many international organizations. Agents, factory representatives, engineers and experts from the water industry, government officials, research scientists, as well as technical consultants attended the event.

This 3-day exhibition and conference provided the first comprehensive overview of the latest technologies and newest developments in the Middle East and found solutions for more effective water resources management in the region.
