Irrigation Australia is thrilled to present the Irrigation Australia Conference and Exhibition in conjunction with the 9th Asian Regional Conference of Irrigation & Drainage and the 75th International Executive Council (IEC) Meeting.

With less than six months to go, the countdown is on to the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest irrigation event. There is still time to be part of this event and here’s a sneak preview of what attendees can look forward to.

Huge combined event

At least 1,000 delegates and around 100 exhibitors are expected to attend the event from 1-7 September. The event will be held at the spectacular Sydney International Convention Centre in the heart of Darling Harbour.

A unique aspect of this combined event is its size and scope; it brings together world-renowned researchers and policy makers, leading manufacturers, retailers, suppliers, water managers, installers, designers and others from Australia and further afield all under the one roof.

Rich conference program

The conference promises a rich program, with presenters from around the globe, based around the theme: ‘Irrigation’s role in delivering economically viable food security and sustainable urban spaces in an increasingly unpredictable climate’.

The conference themes and sub-themes promote inclusion but also celebrate the significant skills and expertise the irrigation industry offers, along with the benefits of international collaboration.

New exhibition approach

In 2024, Irrigation Australia has taken a fresh approach to the exhibition, making some big changes to ensure it is as interactive, fun and productive as possible for both delegates and exhibitors.

In 2024 the event will have:

  • More space, with all meals incorporated into the exhibition hall
  • Two-hour lunch breaks with plenty of activities, including promotions and competitions
  • An ‘interactive zone’ where exhibitors can demonstrate their products
  • A networking lounge
  • Exhibitor competitions

There’s still time to secure your exhibition space. The exhibition is an unparalleled opportunity for organisations to come face-to-face with customers, to increase visibility and to showcase products and services.

Sponsorship opportunities

Irrigation Australia is excited to welcome Franklin Electric as its principal partner and major sponsors include Brown Brothers Engineers Australia, Davey Water Australia and Rain Bird Australia.

It is not too late to get involved as a sponsor and there are a range of packages available.

A rare chance for the industry to come together

As always, you can look forward to a selection of side events: workshops, technical tours, social and networking events. Among these is the ‘Women Working in Water’ Breakfast, which was one of the highlights of the 2022 event.

Attendees will also have plenty of time to catch up with old friends and colleagues and forge new connections at the welcome ceremony and the conference dinner, which will feature entertainment by Aus rock band, Classic Oz.

Irrigation Australia looks forward to welcoming you!
