Digital Utilities 2018, running from 19-20 April in Melbourne, is the premier event for anyone working in the utility industry and grappling with the momentous impacts of digital technologies. Combining a conference, exhibition and awards gala dinner, delegates will hear from senior figures and industry experts at Australian water and power utilities about the digital technologies they’re implementing, the challenges they have faced and the lessons they’ve learned.

The digitisation of utilities is the greatest challenges currently facing the sector, and utilities must keep up or risk being left behind.

Digitisation should be seen as an exciting opportunity to improve processes, reduce costs, maximise safety and innovative procedures. Utilities must be willing to step up and embrace the change.

Digital Utilities 2018 has been created to do just that – provide delegates with the tools needed to use digital technologies to place their utilities at the forefront of the digital revolution.

The two day conference will feature a lineup of expert speakers from water and power utilities, including CEOs, CIOs, Heads of Digital, consultants, industry associations and government representatives.

This is a must-attend event for anyone who wants to learn how their organisation can evolve into a modern, dynamic utility.

What to expect at Digital Utilities 2018?

Day One of the conference will feature individual presentations from key experts that relate to all aspects of digitisation.

Day Two will be split into four streams:

  1. Using digital technologies to improve customer relationships
  2. The role of renewables in our digital future
  3. Achieving cyber security resilience in a digital environment
  4. Modernising the network for the digital age

The Day Two streams will be presented as long-form panel sessions so speakers can debate and delve deeper into these issues.

The conference will also include two structured networking sessions which will guarantee introductions to like-minded colleagues and speakers. This is in addition to multiple networking lunches and breaks for a more relaxed atmosphere.

Digital Utilities 2018 is running 19–20 April at the Pullman Hotel, Albert Park Melbourne. For more information visit
