What happens once the toilets are built? Worldwide, 2.7 billion people rely on onsite sanitation. Yet, there is still typically no management system in place to deal with the resulting faecal sludge. Creating faecal sludge management (FSM) infrastructure and public services that work for everyone, and keeping faecal sludge out of the environment is a major challenge for achieving universal sanitation access and driving economic growth. Moreover, by 2050 the world urban population is expected to nearly double, making urbanization and the management of urban waters and sludges one of the 21st century’s most transformative trends. FSM5 deliberates on options, solutions and scaling up opportunities. We invite you to participate in this event and join the worldwide efforts towards effective FSM solutions.

 FSM5 gives you the unique opportunity and an extremely effective avenue to place your products, technologies as well as FSM related services in front of your current and potential customers in a highly influential environment and to establish and enhance your foothold in this competitive sector. The Industry and Exhibition outreach platform at FSM5 showcases relevant products and services across the entire FSM chain, creating a physical space for suppliers and customers of FSM solutions to interact, demonstrate practical evidence, disseminate information and build alliances. This Exhibition will open new avenues for attendees to explore both local and international market in the developing FSM sector.

We look forward to your presence at the Exhibition at FSM5,  International Convention Centre, Cape Town!
