2019 Welcome message from Water New Zealand’s chief executive

Welcome to this year’s Water New Zealand Conference & Expo to be held in Hamilton from 17-20 September.

Over the past few years it has been an increasingly successful event with the expo sold out and growing numbers of registrations. Attendees regularly tell us that they value the technical sessions and opportunity to network with their industry colleagues.

There will also be plenty of forward-looking action – we hope to be in a position to report on government decisions around regulatory reform in the three waters arena. We’ll be continuing with our very successful Thought Leadership stream to complement the technical papers selected by our able and energetic Technical Committee.

Last year we had a great attendance to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Association and I’m sure this year we’ll be looking at another excellent event.

Our conference is a highlight in the 3-Waters events calendar – bringing together like-minded professionals to share experiences, knowledge and build new relationships.

I look forward to seeing you there.

John Pfahlert
Chief Executive, Water New Zealand
