Emeritus Professor John Swaffield, a world recognized authority on drainage systems and current president of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) chaired the half-day event, which was initiated by www.worldplumbinginfo.com

The day was sponsored by IAPMO & Caroma and supported by the World Plumbing Council , ISH Frankfurt & World Plumbing Info.
