Since its establishment in 1980, AAEA organizes an international congress and exhibition every two years in the country of one of its members, focusing on water and sanitation issues. The event has gained significance beyond the continent and is currently a major global gathering, attracting an increasing number of industry professionals eager to advance the Sustainable Development Goals agenda, particularly Goal 6, which addresses sustainable access to water and sanitation for all, approaching the deadline set by the international community.

It serves as a continental platform for sharing experiences and knowledge management in the water and sanitation sector, bringing together public water and sanitation utilities, sector regulators, policymakers, and equipment and service providers across Africa to share knowledge and best practices. AAEA congresses commence with pre-congress events, including the Women's Forum and the Young Professionals Forum, providing spaces for knowledge sharing, coaching, advocacy, start-up presentations, and mentorship.

The event comprises a scientific component and an international exhibition: The scientific program features presentations (100+), panels (50+), plenary sessions, parallel sessions, technical sessions, covering a wide range of topics such as water resource management, sanitation technologies, climate change, financing mechanisms, technological innovations, and more. The exhibition, occupying a 2500 m² space, allows water and sanitation companies and stakeholders in Africa and beyond to embrace technological innovations that support the improvement of their performance for better access to water and sanitation services for the African population.

For the 22nd edition, the African Association for Water and Sanitation has designated the Guinea Water Company (SEG) as the co-organizer of the Congress. Approximately two thousand (2000) participants and one thousand (1000) delegates are expected to attend.
