After two years of organizing virtual conferences, SHUKOS and SHUKALB are pleased to invite you to join us in person at our 10th Balkans Joint Conference and Exhibition to be held on 8-9-10 November 2022, in Prishtina, Kosovo.
The Conference Theme, Groundwater – Making the Invisible Visible, is inspired by World Water Day 2022, and brings attention to the importance of protecting the quality and quantity of our underground resources. The topic is very valuable especially for our countries, which provide most of their drinking water supply from underground sources.
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 500 participants from the Greater Balkans Region, the Conference continues to offer a platform where water professionals, policymakers, and business professionals from the sector can gather to 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 Balkans Region.
As it has been the practice, the Organizing Committee has planned in parallel, a large Equipment, Technology and Services Exhibition with participation from a broad array of private sector companies who are active in the water sector in the Balkans Region.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Joint Conference and to sharing our common interest for a better water environment for the Greater Balkans.
