2013 Irrigation Conference & Trade Show

Sharing irrigation knowledge for better outcomes: 28-30 May 2013, Griffith NSW

Irrigation Australia’s 2013 Regional Conference will bring all sectors of the irrigation industry together to focus on current and future trends in water supply and irrigation. The internationally recognised conference will offer seminars on essential irrigation topics with key speakers from government, agriculture, and horticulture, as well as environmental and landscape industries.

In May 2013, the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area hub of Griffith will play host to Irrigation Australia’s Regional Conference. Griffith is the hub of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area and well known for its multicultural food, great wine, and cosmopolitan lifestyle. It’s a thriving centre, built on the success of irrigation in the last 100 years. The theme ‘sharing irrigation knowledge for better outcomes’ will come to life at the 2013 conference, with leading industry spokespeople covering topics such as irrigation water system modernisation, urban irrigation methods including drip, centre pivot and surface, environmental irrigation, system design software and much more.

Bringing together irrigation practitioners, suppliers, consultants, advisors, researchers, water management professionals, NRM staff, researchers and the local community, the 2013 conference will be the one stop shop for all things irrigation, exchanging ideas and networking. Tours of both on-farm and infrastructure modernisation will be a feature of the two day program.
