Asia is the world’s economic powerhouse with most of the world’s fastest growing economies in the region.
But as weather events get more extreme and climate change deepens, are the regions businesses – most directly or directly influenced by the weather – best positioned to meet the challenges and take advantage of the new business opportunities being created?
The 6th InterMET Asia conference and exhibition brings the global weather and climate industry together. Dedicated to the use of weather information routinely, and to mitigate, manage and build resilience the event will examine the growing impacts of extreme weather and climate change.
For 2019 it is joined by the 2nd InterFLOOD Asia flood management and mitigation conference and exhibition, with the debut InterAIR Asia focused on air quality monitoring, measurement and improvement.
The result is Asia Climate Week – the most important coming together ever of expertise on weather & climate-related environmental issues for the Asia, Africa and Pacific regions. The conference runs from 25-29 March and the exhibition from 27-28 March.
For 2019, InterMET Asia and InterFLOOD Asia will be joined by the debut InterAIR Asia. As a prelude to a full exhibition and conference launch in 2020, this will initially comprise a series of expert conference sessions.
