Informa Australia is delighted to be hosting the forthcoming Water Security Summit on the 26th-27th October, both in person at the Radisson Blu Sydney and virtually via a live stream and interactive meeting rooms. The event will investigate ways to secure Australia’s future water supplies against drought.
Water supplies across Australia are facing increasing strain, with the Bureau of Australia declaring Spring 2019 to be the driest season in 120 years and the Climate Council’s finding that Australia is experiencing more intense periods of droughts and diminishing rainfall patterns. It now vital that we explore new ways of managing our water supply to ensure long-term water security for our future.
Topics will include:
- Government initiatives
- The future of desalination
- Water recycling
- Urban and rural water security
- Water pricing
In light of the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the Water Security Summit will be delivered as a Hybrid event: with both physical face-to-face attendance, and virtual attendance with interactive features, making this event accessible for attendees from across Australia and the globe. We are adding additional measures to ensure the safety of our speakers and delegates on site, and we are continually reviewing government recommendations as they appear and will make any adjustments necessary.
Rest assured, Informa is evolving & adapting with the times – and will be delivering premium content, networking and business development opportunities for Australia’s water security industry in the months ahead to ensure you can stay connected.
