Hi Amy

Don’t miss out on earlybird rates for the must-attend event of the water sector 2019 calendar! Tomorrow’s the last day to get those great earlybird deals for the Water New Zealand Conference and Expo – so don’t delay any longer!

Meanwhile, it’s still not too late yet to register for the Backflow Conference in Christchurch if you haven’t already done so. But you’ll need to move quick for that one too – it’s on in early August.

Many of us are eager to hear what the Government is going to do around three waters reform. See what the review team says about the feedback it’s received from sector experts. And, if you’re a Young Water Professional, you could be in for a great night out in Christchurch next week – read on to see more.
