CGI sponsors the Northumbrian Water Group Innovation Festival 2018

9-15 July 2018  Newcastle

The NWG Innovation Festival 2018

CGI is proud to sponsor the Northumbrian Water Group (NWG) Innovation Festival for the second consecutive year. This unique event - focused on developing innovative thinking and new technologies - will take place at Newcastle Racecourse in July over five days packed with activities in a summer festival atmosphere.

Following the success of last year’s event, this year NWG will try to solve 13 societal and environmental problems by applying once again design thinking techniques with the help of its partners and sponsors.

CGI will be leading the design sprint, entitled:

Smart Objectives - Smart devices are filling up our homes.
How can we improve customers' lives by making the most of Smart technology?

Join our Sprint, as we explore how existing smart technologies can help water companies deliver a more secure water supply, improve customer service and drive down water bills for consumers.

The event is expected to attract around 800 visitors a day from the industry but also from the local communities, businesses, schools, academia, members of the public and promises to be a Zero Waste event banning single use plastic and promoting recyclying.

CGI will also have a stand at the event. Come and meet us between 9 – 13 July in Newcastle!
