Water New Zealands Annual Conference & Expo is accompanied by the largest water and wastewater trade exhibition in New Zealand. Held for the duration of the conference, the exhibition gives delegates and trade visitors the opportunity to meet with leading equipment manufacturers and service providers and see state-of-the-art equipment, technology and services. Over 100 companies take part and exhibition stands at this event are extremely popular.

Why should I exhibit?

  • This Expo is the largest in the water industry and therefore provides an excellent opportunity to meet existing and potential clients and to showcase your products and services.
  • Approximately 1000 delegates and visitors will attend the Conference & Expo.
  • This Expo is the best way to reach the decision-makers and tap into the huge water industry infrastructure.

The Expo has sold out.


Sponsorship opportunities are available to members of Water New Zealand for the Conference & Expo, as well as several specialty conferences and events undertaken throughout the year. Sponsorship packages vary according to the event and benefits of investment depend on the amount of sponsorship commitment and the type of package. Flexibility is a key in providing sponsors with value for money.

The Conference & Expo is the Associations pre-eminent event for the calendar year and has three categories of sponsorship packages. Premier sponsorship is limited to six opportunities per year. Sponsors receive a complimentary expo stand, promotional opportunities at every stage of conference management and participation, including advertising on conference satchels, pads and pens, as well as complimentary tickets to social functions.

Any queries regarding sponsorship packages available for the conference should be directed to Rebecca Wright at Avenues Event Management.
