Water New Zealand has opened registrations for its 60th Annual Conference and Expo, returning to Claudelands in Hamilton on 19–21 September.
In 2018, last year’s record attendance of more than 1,500 is expected to be exceeded, as members from across the water industry in New Zealand converge to celebrate the historic milestone.
Water New Zealand Chief Executive John Pfahlert said attendees can expect to see some history and nostalgia at this year’s conference, as well as a focus on the future of the industry.
“We’ll be continuing with our very successful Thought Leadership stream to complement the many technical papers selected by our very able and energetic Technical Committee,” he said.
“Last year we had a record attendance of more than 1,500 and I’m sure this year we’ll be looking at another record-breaking event.
“Our conference is a highlight in the three-waters events calendar – bringing together like-minded professionals to share experiences and knowledge, and build new relationships.”
The event will feature a two-day, six-stream conference program covering everything from data issues and strategic planning, through to thought leadership and water treatment.
One of the six streams will be dedicated to Trenchless Technology and presented by the ASTT.
The trenchless stream will include papers from no-dig industry leaders from throughout the Australasian region, as well as a special keynote presentation from AECOM Condition Assessment and Rehabilitation Americas Technical Practice Leader Chris Macey, who will be in Hamilton to present the ASTT’s CIPP Good Practices Course on 17 September.
In addition to the trenchless stream, the event will also include keynote presentations, poster presentations, a large-scale trade exhibition and a number of industry workshops.
Registrations opened on 20 June, with an early bird discount available until 20 July.
