Conference and exhibition map out a bigger future for irrigation

Water is a valued commodity in Australia given the major role agriculture plays in our economy. As global and domestic demand for food and other agricultural products increases, there is pressure for growers and irrigation professionals to understand and manage their irrigation storage and distribution systems with greater precision.

They not only have to look at potential irrigation developments but also turn to technology to better manage crop production using existing irrigation systems.

The 2016 Irrigation Australia International Conference and Exhibition provides you with the latest products, techniques, services and knowledge that are required to support these crucial decisions. Whether you are involved with irrigation for agriculture, horticulture, viticulture, landscaping, parks, golf course or other associated areas, no other event covers the entire irrigation value chain.

A growing list of speakers is being announced with the most recent, John Elliott, Australian Businessman, Former President of the Liberal Party and Former President of Carlton Football Club, presenting in the opening session on day one of the conference.

John commented, “Water management and agribusiness are Australia’s future growth sectors and I have a strong interest and wide experience in both of these key issues.”John has a well documented interest in politics, having been a member of the Liberal Party for over 30 years and becoming Federal President of the Party late in 1987. More recently, John became involved in Commodity Trading – iron, ore, coal and agricultural products and now provides corporate advisory services.

Opening day two of the conference is Phillip Glyde, Chief Executive Officer, Murray-Darling Basin Authority. Recently appointed to the role of Chief Executive, Phillip was previously the deputy secretary Department of Agriculture and Water Resources since November 2006. In that role he was responsible for agriculture, fisheries and forestry.
