The Water New Zealand Annual Conference and Expo is a key event for NZ’s water sector calendar, presenting an attractive opportunity for many Australian attendees and organisations also.
This year, the conference will take place on 16-18 September with a pre-conference event on 15 September to outline how NZ’s new drinking water regulator, Taumata Arowai, will impact the delivery of water.
Water New Zealand President Kelvin Hill said since the lockdown earlier this year prevented the community spread of COVID-19, the event can now take place onsite rather than in the virtual format that many other events have been subject to.
In 2020, the conference program will continue to be incredibly diverse and not only cover drinking water and wastewater, but also climate change, international experiences, infrastructure resilience and more.
“Planning is well underway with five to seven technical streams, innovation and thought leadership presentations along with keynotes and invited speakers,” said Water New Zealand.
“Zooming has become part of everyday business following lockdown and international presenters will be able to zoom in at the conference.
“For those on the spot, receptions and gala dinners will continue to provide plenty of networking opportunities.”
To ensure those across the Tasman who can’t make it due to COVID-19 restrictions are still able to attend, there will be an opportunity to subscribe online and view keynote and other presentations across the event.
Water New Zealand said more details about the online options will become available closer to the event.
