Welcome to the Industrial Waters 2024 Conference

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2024 Industrial Waters conference in the vibrant city of Palmerston North, or Palmy as locals affectionally call it.   

By late 2023, many were poised for real progress in trade and industrial wastewaters management throughout the country. Now like many towns and cities across the Aotearoa New Zealand, Palmerston North is working on ways to navigate the changing landscape of maintaining and financing their 3 Waters infrastructure.  With these challenges in mind finding consensus and collaborative solutions are key.  The Industrial Waters conference is a great opportunity to supercharge the resources we have, to ensure 2024’s the year for positive change in trade and industrial wastewater delivery and management in Aotearoa New Zealand.  

This Forum’s Industrial Waters conference, is the event for you to learn, discuss, exchange ideas, share information, find solutions, and conclusively shape the future of the water sector in Aotearoa New Zealand into the mid-21st century. 

Take the opportunity to engage in broad ranging discussions, attend thought-provoking and informative sessions, and network with fellow professionals. Attendees are passionate about making a practical and meaningful impact in the areas of trade and industrial waste waters.   

The members of the NZTIWF Board look forward to welcoming you to Palmy for Industrial Waters 2024 in August. 

“Whether you're a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to the field, your perspectives and contributions are invaluable.”
