Accommodation scam

It has been brought to our attention that scam accommodation bureaux have been approaching exhibiting companies and members of the hydro industry claiming to represent the HYDRO 2018 conference and offering discounted accommodation in Gdansk, Poland. Please be aware that these companies have no affiliation with us, and we would urge you not to give credit card or personal details to anyone offering to book accommodation for you. The only way to book accommodation through us is when registration opens, through the online registration process, or by contacting ASK Event Management. ASK Event Management will not approach you to try and sell accommodation.

Conference Programme

HYDRO 2018 will be held in Gdansk, Poland. Technical sessions, bringing together experts from across the world, will be held on issues currently faced by the international hydropower and dams community.

The Polish utility Energa is planning a new cascade development on the Vistula river, and plans are also taking shape for a major new trinational inland navigation scheme, which could pave the way for new low-head run-of-river hydro schemes to move ahead. Poland is an ideal meeting point in central Europe, improving access for many of its neighbouring countries, who will join the regular attendees from the world hydropower community.
