The Ontario Waterpower Association’s (OWA) inaugural Resetting and Re-energizing – Waterpower Summit held this week was a resounding success. With a global audience of over two-hundred (200) individuals in attendance, the OWA couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of this event.
The first virtual event of its kind for the waterpower industry, the Summit highlighted how both the OWA, and the sector as a whole, have pivoted quickly in the face of the global pandemic. This week’s conference brought together leaders who participated in discussions that were top of mind for the industry, ranging from economic recovery to technical adaptations, operational considerations, and solutions to the new supply and demand reality. The event also featured a virtual trade show of forty (40) exhibitors, which allowed delegates to connect directly with leading product and service providers.
As the industry continues to adapt to the changes brought on by COVID-19, the OWA predicts even more networking and sharing opportunities will be needed. The Association is looking forward to the Power of Water Canada Conference and Trade Show, which will be held May 25-27, 2021, in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This event is the largest of its kind for the waterpower sector and will provide yet another opportunity for the industry to connect. The sense of community has never been stronger for the waterpower sector and the OWA is proud to be able to facilitate this.
