Water Innovation Forum and Expo
The national Water Innovation Forum and Expo is fast becoming the country’s foremost platform for people working in water-using industries to meet and discuss innovation, sustainability, emerging technology, and exchange fresh and ground-breaking ideas.
Given the aging infrastructure and climatic pressures on water, Australia’s future water security relies on major innovation in technology, design and approach. Now more than ever it is critical to support, promote and cultivate innovation if we are to increase efficiencies, improve practices and withstand any water challenge that comes our way.
Back for the second year in a row, the Water Innovation Forum and Expo is even bigger than before, with speakers from Bureau of Meteorology, AGL, ANSTO and the country’s biggest utilities, as well as nearly 30 pitches from Australia’s brightest sparks.
Join innovators, SMEs, entrepreneurs and start-ups as we explore new thinking, new possibilities and the commercial adoption of cutting edge water technology.

presentations focussing on innovation. We look
forward to supporting next year’s event.”
