The Water Industry Operators Association of Australia (WIOA) has announced its 2020 conference schedule for New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.

The conferences, which focus on water industry operations within Australia, are well-known for distributing the latest technical and research-based information through both platform and poster presentations.

Conference attendees will have the chance to update their knowledge and skills, as well as develop their networks through interaction with fellow water industry professionals.

Importantly, the conferences also provide attendees with the opportunity to view, experience and discuss the latest advances in technical equipment and systems with suppliers within the industry.

2020 schedule

NSW – Tamworth, April 1 & 2

QLD – Toowoomba, June 3 & 4

VIC – Bendigo, September 2 & 3

Call for abstracts

Share your experience within the water industry by submitting an abstract for a paper or poster to be part of the WIOA 2020 program.

All water industry personnel involved in the operation and maintenance of urban, rural and industrial water-related infrastructure for the management, conveyance, treatment, discharge and reuse of water and trade wastes are invited to submit an abstract for consideration.

The technical program will cover various aspects of the industry, so if you have initiatives, ideas or completed works that could influence the operational aspects of the water industry, there’s no better place to share them than in the technical program at a WIOA conference.

Abstracts deadlines vary depending on conference location. Check the WIOA website for closing dates:
