Events

We are looking forward to another exciting year with great events in the pipeline to engage with our members from all across Queensland. 

Last year our six regional conferences brought together approximately 150 of our members from 30 water service providers to network and exchange information. The conferences aim to provide interesting and interactive sessions to help inform and influence qldwater priorities.

The 2016 program is listed in the table below.  Those interested in presenting case studies and other information relevant to any of these regions, please contact Heather Gold on (07) 3632 6850 email hgold@qldwater.com.au.

Sponsorship:

A range of cost-effective sponsorship opportunities is available for organisations wanting to support and raise their profile with the ~70 organisations making up the Queensland urban water and sewerage service industry through our growing, innovative event program. Please contact Heather Gold on 07 3632 6850 for more information.

Our aim is to connect with our members and to provide opportunities to discuss and escalate issues we are facing in the Queensland water industry.
