What is a Specialist Summit?
Hydromet Network’s Specialist Summits are designed to drill down into emerging, highly relevant and timely topics. Taking subject areas that are vital to our core audience of NMHS, as well as closely aligned groups - including Government agencies, weather-sensitive private businesses, NGOs, key funders and others.
With delegates carefully screened for relevance each Specialist Summit will take a comprehensive look at an issue’s problems and solutions using a series of product demonstrations; technical lectures; workshops and case studies. Over the two-day gathering, there will also be an opportunity to schedule private virtual meetings.
The Hydromet Network’s new event, Specialist Summit: River and River Basin Monitoring, is a one-day virtual gathering designed to educate participants on the latest thinking, partnerships, technology, policy and infrastructure in the growing space of river basin hydrology.
