In order to highlight the Australian Water industry and its major players, the organisers and the Australian partners have developed an Australian Precinct on the Exhibition floor where the Australian water sector has the opportunity to showcase its projects, products, innovations and solutions.
This Australia Precinct gives Australian based water companies, institutes, utilities and government the opportunity to showcase Australia’s leading projects, innovations and products on a global stage: the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition 2016 in Brisbane. By clustering the Australian sector on the exhibit floor, a full and coherent overview of the Australian water sector can be given, and an efficient networking Precinct can be created.
The IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition is a bi-annual event that travels across the globe. The presence in Australia in 2016 is therefore a unique and not to be missed opportunity. It attracts global leading water professionals and offers the exhibitors in the Australia Precinct to connect to these global leaders in general, and within that to new business partners and project possibilities in the Asia-Pacific region as well as Australia itself. It offers a unique possibility to discuss national developments within a truly global context and attendance.
Major stakeholders of this initiative for the Australian Precinct are:
- The Australian Government through the Australian Water Partnership (AWP)
- Australian Water Association (AWA)
- A Host Country Coalition with representatives from all parts of the local sector.
The centre piece for the Australian Precinct will be a pavilion hosted by the Australian Water Partnership and a combination of national and regional government agencies. Other highlights in this Australian Precinct will be clusters of exhibiting companies and institutes from:
- Australian universities and research institutes
- Australian water utilities
- Australian contractors
- Australian consultants
- Australian manufacturers / technology providers
