A blanket of snow kept away some of the participants. But still: over 50 brave delegates had made it to BRE in Watford near London to attend the IWMA Seminar on "Fire Protection of high-rise Buildings with Water Mist". General Manager Bettina McDowell introduced the International Water Mist Association, explained how water mist works and said something about the technology's history.

A great line-up of speakers from high pressure and low pressure water mist companies elaborated on new building projects incorporating water mist but also on retro-fitted systems. Insurance man Gary Howe explained how to ensure that a water mist systems works and IWMA president Ragnar Wighus (RISE Norway) summarized what had been said during the day.
The good news for those who have not been able to make it or who did not get one of the sought-after tickets: the 18th International Water Mist Conference will take place in London on 19th and 20th September 2018.
The conference webpage will be open from 15th May onwards. The abstract deadline is on 16th April!
