Three regional workshops for business, charity and public sector customers ahead of market opening

Three workshops for business, charity and public sector customers are being held across England ahead of market opening to help you make sense of what’s to come.

From 1 April, 1.2 million businesses, charities and public sector customers in England will be able to choose who supplies their water and wastewater retail services – this includes billing, water metering and water efficiency services.

The aim of the new market is to promote more choice, with customers able to benefit from more tailored packages and better customer service. We welcome individuals who represent a trade or membership body, own a business, work in the public sector or for a charity to the Open Water programme customer stakeholder workshops:

Bath, Friday 24 February 2017

Birmingham, Wednesday 15 March 2017

Leeds, Tuesday 21 March 2017

Each workshop will take place from 9.30am until 1pm and includes a networking lunch.

You’re very welcome to attend any of the events, but please let us know you’re coming so we can ensure there is a space for you and some lunch!

Please RSVP to: claire.nichols1@ofwat.gsi.gov.uk

The workshops will cover:

  • What consumer choice will mean for businesses, charities and public sector organisations
  • How the new retail water market will work
  • How you can help and how Open Water partners can help you
  • The support that is available to help you to engage and communicate with your members/clients about the market opening and the channels you might use.

Please share this information with your friends or colleagues who live in the Bath, Leeds and Birmingham areas. We also welcome hearing from you in advance. Please let us know some of the questions you would like answered on the day.

We look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, you can find out more about the new retail market and the Open Water programme by visiting www.open-water.org.uk or following us on Twitter at @OpenWaterOrg and LinkedIn.
