Global Water Intelligence was launched in June 2000 by the CWC Group, with Peter Allison as editor. Initially it focused on the private water market, but Christopher Gasson’s Media Analytics Ltd. acquired it in September 2002, with just the editor transferring to the new owner. In 2003 GWI launched Desalination Tracker, which, together with our 2004 Desalination Markets report, transformed the fortunes of the company.
 
In 2005 Media Analytics acquired two related publications: the IDA Worldwide Desalting Plant Inventory, and Water Desalination Report. WDR was founded in 1965 by Dick Smith, and had a very established but irreverent position as the chronicle of the desalination industry. Dick Smith, who had edited the magazine single-handedly from a wheelchair following a car accident which left him partially paralysed, retired after the acquisition. Tom Pankratz took over the title.
 
The Inventory was also founded in 1965. It had been published in recent years by German desalination consultant Klaus Wangnick. Under Media Analytics’ ownership, the Inventory was recast as the IDA Desalination Yearbook and DesalData.com
 
Today, the company employs around 40 people at its Oxford headquarters, and a further half dozen or so at various locations around the world.

The Media Kit includes advertising information about all our publications - in print, online and in digital format:

  • Global Water Intelligence magazine, globalwaterintel.com and associated digital email options
  • Desalination.com, the WDR report and associated digital email options
  • Ultrapurewater.com, UPWMicro and UPWPharma events and associated digital email options
  • The Global Water Summit and American Water Summit, and the Global Water Awards events
