About the Conference

The WIOA Queensland Water Industry Operations Conference and Exhibition was conducted in Rockhampton with delegates officially welcomed by Councillor Margaret Strelow the Mayor of Rockhampton. The event concluded with the official awards ceremony, which saw Vern Atkinson from the Cairns Regional Council win the prestigious industry award the 2016 Queensland Operator of the Year.

A highlight of the event was the Ixom Water of Origin that saw the Queenslanders record their third successive win. The sample from the Barcaldine Regional Council just got over the line against the NSW rival and Queensland now leads the WIOA Water of Origin series 3-1.

A comprehensive exhibition with over 100 trade sites saw companies exhibit the latest in equipment, services and process technologies available to the water, wastewater and liquid conveyancing industries.
