About the Conference
The Australian Water Association (AWA) and Australian & New Zealand Biosolids Partnership (ANZBP) biennial Biosolids Conference will be held from Thursday 4th - Friday 5th March 2021. This conference will examine key developments across areas of the water industry and drive discussion, debates and collaboration which will help set the future direction for these specialisms. 

The conference will bring together experts from the Biosolids arena and a technical program has been curated to ensure quality and a broad representation of case studies with an emphasis on problem sharing and solving.

For the first time, this will be delivered as a premium online conference, with smaller in-person participation and networking at hubs in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland on Friday 5th March - day two of the event.

There are two ways to participate in the conference:

1. Online 
Engage with the conference presentations and speakers live via the online conference platform. Delegates will be able to watch presentations, ask questions of the presenters in the live Q&A sessions and access presenter details, abstracts, full papers and presentations. 

2. Day 1 Online + Day 2 In-person Hubs
Engage with the conference presentations and speakers live via the online conference platform on day one – Thursday 4th March. 

Then on day two, Friday 5th March, there is the option to attend a small, in-person participation and networking hub in either Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney or Auckland. Attendance at these hubs will enable delegates to watch the online conference on a large screen, engage and network with each other during morning/afternoon tea breaks and lunch - catering is included. Maximum capacity at each hub is 40 delegates. 

Additional hubs may be added subject to delegate locations and demand. 

In-person Networking Function
After the conclusion of the conference on day two, Friday 5th March, a two hour in-person networking function will be held from 5.00 – 7.00pm at an offsite venue close to each in-person hub in the cities listed above.  

Both the in-person hubs and networking function venues will be in a CBD or central location in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland. Further details will be updated on this page in early 2021.
