Adelaide Hosts Irrigation Conference

In June, the Adelaide Convention Centre will welcome international and domestic delegates of the largest irrigation event ever to be held in the southern hemisphere; the Irrigation Australia 2012 Conference and Trade Show.

Running from 26th to 28th June, the event will present speakers from many nations, including; South Korea, Iran, Indonesia, China, Japan, Pakistan, Turkey, Russia and Australia. A highlight of the Conference will be on Tuesday 26 June, when the opening keynote address will be given by Hon Jay Weatherill, Premier of South Australia, followed by the ICID President, Gao Zhanyi, addressing the role of irrigation in feeding the world.

This year’s conference program will focus on issues that will affect businesses, and the industry, over the next 12 months, as well as the challenges faced by a still developing sector. Over the three days the IAL Conference will offer seminars on essential irrigation topics with key speakers from government, agriculture, and horticulture, as well as environmental and landscape industries.

Programme outline:

  • Integrated water management
  • Horticulture
  • Agriculture
  • Drainage and flood management
  • Water for the environment
  • Regional cooperation

Commenting on the conference programme, Ian Atkinson, CEO of Irrigation Australia, said: “For both international and domestic delegates the Conference programme offers an excellent opportunity to hear from a diverse range of speakers on irrigation issues, as well as get up to speed with the latest developments in technology and management. Complemented by the biggest Trade Show in the southern hemisphere, we’re anticipating a very successful and exciting event for everyone involved."

The expansive Trade Show will run alongside Irrigation Australia’s 2012 Conference. Occupying more than 5000 square metres, the Trade Show will feature companies such as irrigation equipment suppliers, importers, distributors and retailers all showcasing their products and services to the irrigation industry.

Along with industry sponsors, the Irrigation Australia 2012 Conference and Trade Show is also supported by the South Australian Tourism Commission, Adelaide Convention Bureau and Adelaide Convention Centre.

Visitors are encouraged to register to attend the Trade Show via the website. Registration is also available on the day in person.
