From June 26 – 28, the Adelaide Convention Centre will be awash with exhibitors displaying new services and technologies in irrigation and water management. Occupying more than 5000 square metres, the Trade Show will feature irrigation equipment suppliers, as well as importers, distributors and retailers all showcasing their products and services to the irrigation industry.
The Trade Show will offer visitors from agriculture, horticulture, environmental and water management businesses new insight into equipment, processes and business know how. Additionally there will be valuable meeting spots at the Trade Show for delegates to network with their peers and share industry knowledge. Spacious networking lounges will provide ideal meeting points to discuss new business opportunities.
For Australian exhibitors the Trade Show offers a wider, and more international, audience for their products and services and is an opportunity for Australian companies and organisations to demonstrate their experience to the rest of the world.
A new feature for the Trade Show in 2012 is the ‘Wet Pit’ Demonstration Area which will offer visitors a real ‘touch and feel’ experience. In describing the Demonstration Area, CEO of Irrigation Australia, Ian Atkinson said: “This is a unique way for Trade Show visitors to learn about new technologies from leading suppliers in the water industry and see experts demonstrating their products and skills firsthand.“
Another feature of this year’s Trade Show will be the new product and innovation competition, open to both individuals and companies. Entrants will be required to make a submission and upon acceptance, will be invited to display the poster of their product or innovation in the designated area of the Trade Show. The winner will receive a cash prize and advertising in the Irrigation Australia Journal.
Entry to the Trade Show is via a gold coin donation which Irrigation Australia will donate to WaterAid Australia; an international charity dedicated to helping some of the world’s poorest people escape the cycle of poverty and disease caused by living without safe water and sanitation.
Visitors are encouraged to register to attend the Trade Show via the website at www.irrigation.org.au/2012 Registration is also available on the day in person. The Trade Show will be open each day from 10.00am – 5.00pm.
