Thank you from Gillian Blythe, Water New Zealand Chief Executive.

Thank you for coming to the Water Zealand Conference and Expo 2022.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the record-breaking Water New Zealand Conference & Expo 2022 such an awesome event. We welcomed more than 1000 delegates over the two and a half days of presentations, workshops, social events and gala dinner. We also welcomed more than 400 extra visitors to more than 230 stands – not forgetting the Taumata Arowai/Department of Internal Affairs National Transition Unit pre-conference workshop attended by 300.

This was a huge team effort over many months which all came together at Te Pae to ensure that our days were filled with rich discussions and learnings.

There was so much to talk about – from reforms and innovation, Te Mana o te Wai, partnerships, sustainability – the list goes on.
With major changes to the delivery of Three Waters on the horizon, it’s important that we are able to continue to ensure you have every opportunity to take part in discussions about the future shape of the sector.

So keep an eye on our website and LinkedIn pages, and sign up to our Pipeline e-newsletter for updates on our 2023 conferences and more – in March Te Whanganui a Tara Wellington will host our Modelling Symposium, then in May our Stormwater Conference is in Tamaki Makaurau Auckland, 23 – 25 May 2023; and of course later in the year, our Water New Zealand Conference and Expo 2023 is being held at Tākina, Wellington’s new Convention and Exhibition centre, 17 – 19 October 2023.

We hope to see you again soon,

Ngā mihi nui
Gillian Blythe
Chief Executive
