Chief Executive’s welcome message

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Water New Zealand Conference and Expo 2024 in Kirikiriroa Hamilton.

All of us know the important role of three waters in ensuring safe, healthy and liveable communities in Aotearoa New Zealand.  The success and year on year growth of our conferences reflect the growing interest and understanding of this.  2024 is looking to be no exception.

This conference will again be a pivotal opportunity for us to come together as a water community and be part of key conversations about the future of this vital sector.  This summer we’ve been reminded again of the increasingly urgent need to set the course for a long-term resolution to our gaping infrastructure deficit.

We’ll be firmly focused on the latest thinking on innovation and technology, Te Mana o te Wai, resilience, sustainability and much more.

We also know how important it is for our members to stay connected. Exhibitors play a key role at our conferences and I’m particularly pleased that this year at Claudelands we’ve been able to secure additional exhibition sites. We understand the disappointment of exhibitors who have missed these opportunities in the past.

2024 will be a dynamic and critical year and I look forward to catching up with everyone in September.
