Econet participates for the first time in a World Expo, which will be held in the capital of Kazakstan, Astana. Company’s goal is to increase awareness to save water, and to present Finnish water expertise.
- Our purpose is to spread awareness about water consumption, and especially show future solutions for preventing water network leakages. I wish that our piece will make people stop for a moment, and think about their own water consumption, tells Econet’s project manager Vadim Fedorov.
The international exhibition EXPO 2017 will be held from 10 June 2017 until 10 September 2017. Finland is among those 115 countries who have confirmed their participation in this large-scale exhibition, with over five million expected visitors.
Finpro will be responsible for the arrangements of the Finnish pavilion. Finnish Water Forum (FWF) will be participating in the exhibition with the Exhibition partner status, together with several businesses from the water industry, including Econet. During the international exhibition, two Water Days will be held at the Finnish pavilion, one in June and the other in August. These events will include topical seminars, B2B meetings, and presentations of Finnish water industry know-how.
