Water mist community to meet in Istanbul 22-23 October

Published:  18 July, 2014

This year’s International Water Mist Conference will be held in Istanbul, Turkey – don’t miss the chance to find out the latest innovations in this exciting technology!

This year’s venue will be the Lütfi Kirdar ICEC in the heart of the city. The Turkish capital was chosen as the interest in fire protection with water mist is continually growing in this region.

This was proven by two seminars which the IWMA organized during intersec in Dubai in 2013 and 2014. In 2013 about 50 delegates came to attend the first seminar. One year later this number increased to about 80 people who wanted to learn more about water mist technology.

“By going to Istanbul, which is easy to reach for people from the aforementioned regions, the IWMA is trying to accommodate that interest”, said Ragnar Wighus, president of the IWMA.

As far as the programme for 2014 is concerned the IWMA board of directors have decided to go for some exciting developments.

The first is that the first day of the conference – the 22nd October - will be solely dedicated to applications, exploring the types of environments where water mist systems can be installed. This day will also include a panel discussion, and attendance for this day can be booked separately.

The 23rd October will deal with science and research. Experts from universities and institutes will talk about developments and findings, including a presentation on the IWMA research project. The complete programme can be viewed on the IWMA homepage here. 

During both days there will be an exhibition and on the end of Day 1 the IWMA will invite all delegates to an evening reception.

Further information on the conference can be retrieved from the conference webpage which can be reached via the IWMA homepage.
