As a significant and longstanding contributor to the European technology arena, the pump sector continues to consider the enhancement of its global competitiveness, against the backdrop of complex societal and environmental challenges. Key among these is of course its unwavering commitment to the preparation of energy efficiency and circular economy regulations. However, the opportunities and challenges presented by digitalisation, including regulatory debates on data sharing, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity, also now require industry-wide consideration. These fast-moving developments, amidst fierce international competition where public authorities and the private sector are working increasingly closer together to design and deploy strategies that promote national value chains, require an overarching Europe-wide positioning.

In support of the current EU legislative agenda, as well as several broader topic areas of real importance to the international pump sector, the BPMA, on behalf of Europump, looks forward to presenting a comprehensive business agenda, which with the generous assistance of WEG will be supported by an equally engaging social programme.

Commenting on this important undertaking for the BPMA, its CEO, Wayne Rose, said: “It has been 10 years since the BPMA last had the honour of hosting Europump's Annual Meeting, when it was held at the famous St Andrew's in Scotland. That location was incredibly well received by all those in attendance and allowed for a fantastic social programme to accompany the business meetings. A decade on, and we are again delighted to be hosting the Annual Meeting at another world-famous location. Home to the recently crowned King Charles and Queen Camilla, Windsor provides a breathtaking backdrop to this important gathering for the European pump industry, and the impressive Beaumont Estate offers an unrivalled environment for both business and social interaction. On behalf of the BPMA, and all its Members, I look forward to welcoming our international pump colleagues to the event in May 2024.”

As with previous Annual Meetings, there will be sessions dedicated to the activities of the various Europump working groups – Technical, Standards, Marketing and SME. However, a number of invited speakers will also share their thoughts and expertise on a range of topical issues including Digitisation and AI, Sustainability, the post Brexit political landscape and the world pump market.

The event is open to all members of Europump, as well as those of its respective National Associations, and with an extensive programme of talks, presentations, and social gatherings, it provides a unique opportunity for senior executives from across the European pump sector to come together and develop their thinking and future goals.

Full details on the event, including further information on the venue, its location and travel arrangements can be found on the dedicated website which went live on Tuesday 1st August 2024. The online booking system will also went live at this time, allowing delegates, and their partners, to benefit from the attractive ‘Early Bird’ discount structure. A promotional video, fully illustrating all aspects of the event is also available via the website.
