We have postponed until 26 – 28 August.

The current coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has had a significant impact on business-as-usual activities in New Zealand and around the world. New Zealand entered Level 1 of the COVID-19 Alert System on 9 June.

Planning for the Stormwater Conference has been underway for months and the programme is complete. Due to COVID-19 the Conference has now been postponed from both its original date in May and alternative July date. The new date for Stormwater Conference is now 26 – 28 August 2020. Earlybird and Corporate Registrations are extended to 26 June. If you are already registered you do not need to do anything further.

Water New Zealand is excited to host the Stormwater Conference and will update you on any changes to the Conference delivery or schedule as we move through the the levels. We look forward to meeting all our delegates, sponsors, exhibitors and speakers at our new dates in August.
