As event partner, Yorkshire Water is working with Marketing Humber to host its very first virtual Waterline Summit this October.

This week-long flagship event is the ideal opportunity to learn more about how the Humber region is working towards a zero-carbon economy, and what sustainable careers are in store here for young people – our future leaders.

Aligned with COP26 and the government’s agenda, this year’s event will showcase the Humber’s innovative expertise like no other. Delegates and guests will learn of the transformational projects taking place here, and how these come together to build a new model for decarbonisation both in business and communities.

It will be a chance to meet leading employers, whose sustainable projects demand new skills and offer exciting career opportunities. You can also hear from the Humber region’s talented young professionals and learn more about how they got to where they are now.

This event will raise the profile of the region, demonstrating how the Humber can provide solutions to this global challenge, and cement our regional ambition.

The online event will allow attendees to browse virtual exhibition stands, download valuable content and materials, attend webinars and network.

As ambassadors of our region, please spread the word about the event amongst your supply chains, your customers, your colleagues and your neighbours - this challenge and the opportunities ahead are for everyone in the Humber.


This event is open to everyone in the region and is free to attend.
