In 2013, the Water Supply and Sewerage Association of Albania (SHUKALB) and the Water
and Wastewater Works Association of Kosovo (SHUKOS), started a tradition to organize the
Balkans Joint Conference and Exhibition. Since then, this event has been successfully held
each year, once in Pristina and once in Tirana.
This year, is organized the 4th Balkans Joint Conference and Exhibition to be held in Tirana, Albania, on 2-4 November 2016, at Expo City Albania. The Conference Theme “Water and Jobs” brings much needed attention to the multiple challenges that we face in the water sector as we work to replace a retiring workforce, while at the same working to communicate the career
opportunities that exist in the water sector, but that are not well understood by the younger
generations in the Western Balkans.
The Balkans Joint Conference and Exhibition has truly established itself as a major knowledge sharing and networking event in the Western Balkans water sector. With an audience of over 450 participants from the Greater Balkan Region, the Conference offers a platform where water professionals, policymakers, and business professionals from the sector gather and discuss issues of concern, exchange information, and share experiences in an effort to help the further development of the water supply and wastewater sector in the Greater Balkan Region.
The Conference Program will allow for a broad and multi-dimensional discussion of topics,
covering from policy to technical, as well as management issues of the water sector. The
conference will provide a platform for discussion, where participants can share their knowledge and experience in the dealing with water sector issues, and in the same time it will create networking opportunities among professionals of the water sector in the Balkan Region.
As traditionally, paralleling the Conference, the Organizing Committee has planned another large Exhibition area with participation from broad array of private sector companies that offer products, technologies and services to the water sector.
