The water industry is faced with the opportunity to embrace the advancement of emerging smart technologies. The integration of the physical world with the digital world offers endless opportunities for application, but at the same time presents future challenges on risk management, development of policy, regulation and ethics. This Conference will bring together water industry leaders from private, government, and research organisations around this central theme.
This Conference is hosted by the Australian Water Association WA Professional Development Sub-Committee.
The full day program has been tailored for delegates with a range of backgrounds including utility, government, research, policy development, private consulting and industry engagement. Keynote speakers and presenters will share their experience, and facilitate discussion by challenging and inspiring delegates beyond their education and workplace capabilities.

Workshop - Digital Tide
Join us for an interactive discussion of digital’s impacts on the water industry. As part of a global research initiative, Arup has developed a series of digital disruptor informational cards to help shape the conversations around digital within the water industry. This workshop will introduce the cards to the audience, and then an interactive discussion will centre around the impacts and opportunities as seen from various perspectives such as the customers, regulators, public and private sector utility owners and providers. Following this, the top opportunities and issues can be addressed through the development of a high level digital strategy and framework going forward.
