Welcome from Irrigation Australia

Irrigation Australia is thrilled to announce the southern hemisphere’s premier water event, incorporating the 9th Asian Regional Conference for Irrigation and Drainage, 75th International Executive Council meeting of the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage and 2024 Irrigation Australia Conference and Exhibition.

It will be an invaluable opportunity for industry practitioners, academics, manufacturers, and service providers to come together, exchange knowledge and celebrate the achievements of our industry.

Sydney is an iconic Australian destination with world class event facilities and endless activities to entertain visitors for an extended stay. It is also an ideal starting point to enjoy the rest of what Australia has to offer.

The conference promises a rich program with presenters from around the globe, and a structure designed to maximise interaction. Around 100 exhibitors will showcase the most innovative products and services currently available on the market. We are confident that delegates from across the industry will return home with new connections, new friends, and new ideas to try in their own regions, wherever they may.

Our conference themes and sub-themes promote inclusion but also to celebrate the significant skills and expertise our own irrigation industry offers, along with the benefits of international collaboration. As an Association, Irrigation Australia’s purpose is to promote the adoption of efficient and productive irrigation practices across Australia’s food and fibre markets, leisure activity spaces and commercial activities to ensure the best use of our most precious resource. This event provides a wonderful platform for celebrating and recognising this commitment.

Irrigation Australia acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the lands on which we work and live, and pay our respects to indigenous elders, past, present and emerging.
