More than 100 people from 38 organisations joined Severn Trent at the Coventry University Technology Centre to share their ideas as part of the four-day Coventry and Warwickshire Business Festival. Together, they used each other’s expertise to explore new and innovative ways to find leaks for the water company, which serves around 8 million customers in the Midlands and Wales.
