Varysian | Developing awareness of new meteorological technologies in Africa

Ministers and hydrometeorological service directors from all 54 African nations attended the Hydromet Africa 2019 exhibition in Cairo this week.

Hosted by Varysian in association with the Egyptian Meteorological Authority, Hydromet Africa was the largest international trade show of its kind for the hydromet industry in the region.

The event ran from 18-22 February alongside the annual AMCOMET, RA-1 DG quadrennial and WMO RA-1 RECO meetings, giving 28 exhibitors from around the world the chance to meet directly with 185 key decision-makers in a closed environment.

Tom Copping, Managing Director of Varysian, said: “Public-private partnerships play a central and increasingly important role in building hydromet capacity in the developing world.

“Events like this give solution providers and met service directors a unique opportunity to meet and learn from each other with the shared goal of implementing cost-effective solutions to protect lives, businesses and communities.”
