PURE Global Water ExpoThe Consular Chamber of Commerce is inviting those interested in potable water development to Las Vegas for a newly developed expo and conference in Fall of 2011.    

PURE Global Water Expo is being marketed internationally.  PURE stands for Potability Underdevelopment Rescue Expo.  The conference is designed to attract several key sectors, including:     

  • Water purification and de-salination technology firms
  • Charity and NGO entities involved in funding potable water projects in developing communities
  • Governments and communities in need of potable water development
  • Venture capitalists and government agencies interested in financing potable water development

“One billion people in the world don’t have access to clean drinking water, despite the fact that it is often easily developed and sustainable in their immediate area.  The results are disastrous for all people.  War, disease, famine, mass exodus, human trafficking and more can all point to a root cause of a lack of clean water.   We set out to bring together those catalysts changing this dynamic.”

UN Figures: Decline in potable water financing

  The Consular Chamber of Commerce is presently reviewing proposals for PURE Global Water Expo venue, catering and hotels.  Affordability for attendees is paramount.  The event will also include a the Chamber’s well-known Dine With Dignitaries, welcoming visiting VIP’s to Las Vegas with personal introductions to Las Vegas society and US officials. 

  The 3-day conference will primarily be a product show, allowing the latest in water purification technologies, such as portable solar-powered water purification systems and the latest in micro-well drilling techniques.  The related shelter and power technologies will also be featured.  Participation by various Non-Governmental Organizations and charities is anticipated, as the Expo will facilitate working outdoor demonstrations of many technologies in one place.  

Las Vegas has been chosen for the first PURE Global Water Expo not only because it is the headquarters of the Consular Chamber of Commerce, but also because it rose from the Mojave Desert in one generation to become the most visited city in the world, due in large part to successful, albeit tumultuous, potable water development.    

The Expo can be followed on Facebook and Twitter, or at www.purewaterexpo.com
