SWCC, through EVOLVE 2023 that lasted for 3 days in Riyadh, offered a unique knowledge journey during which it revealed the details of the water industry from its production in desalination systems and then its long-distance transport through huge pipelines to major cities and finally its distribution through smart networks. The exhibition and forum presented an important aspect of the history of the Kingdom's desalination industry since its inception in 1907 until the present.

EVOLVE 2023 concluded in Riyadh yesterday after witnessing 10 expanded panel discussions and specialized workshops aimed at developing the next generation of the Kingdom's desalination industry, adopting new technologies in the water sector, developing the supply chain locally, promoting localization in this industry, taking advantage of the achievements of desalination in the Kingdom, investing in commercial marketing, utilizing technology, and accelerating the next generation of water desalination.
