Irrigation Australia also hosts the biennial Irrigation Australia Conference and Exhibition which offers seminars on essential irrigation topics with key speakers from government, agriculture, and horticulture, as well as environmental and landscape industries. A major industry trade show is also held in conjunction with the conference which provides a great opportunity for our industry colleagues to meet and learn more about new industry products, services and technology available. Future trends in water supply and irrigation are demonstrated at this internationally recognised Conference.
