Events 2017

We have another exciting year with great events to engage with our members from all across Queensland. 

Last year our regional conferences brought together our members, regulators and non-members to network and exchange information. The conferences aim to provide interesting and interactive sessions to help inform and influence qldwater priorities.

The 2017 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


Our innovative event program offers a  range of cost-effective opportunities for sponsors wanting to support and connect with the organisations making up the Queensland urban water and sewerage service industry. 

Our sponsorship package for 2017 is now available for download here.

In 2017 a new opportunity has been created for vendors, with a vendor showcase being held on Day 1 of our qldwater Annual Forum on 6 September.  Further information together on the showcase with FAQ's on sponsorship for the qldwater Annual Forum is available here.  If you need more information, contact Heather Gold on 07 3632 6850 or email
