The Urban Drainage Group Annual Autumn Conference and Exhibition spans three days and is the industry’s main event of the year. The conference is a forum for presenters, a showcasing work, ideas, processes and discussion of the latest knowledge, techniques and research to around 200 industry delegates.
Workshops aim to progress the discussion in a more detailed informal manner, allowing participants the opportunity to be a greater part of the discussion with like minded delegates and workshop presenters alike.
To coincide with the conference and workshops there is an industry led exhibition and conference dinner providing ample opportunity for networking and catching up with colleagues.
The proceedings are kicked off on the Wednesday afternoon with a Research Forum led by experienced professionals and leading representatives in the urban drainage field. The event also encompasses the awarding of the WaPUG prize for those who have made a significant contribution in the field and the Adam Dean award focusing on those starting out in their career.
The event attracts delegates from a wide range of associated organisations and individuals spanning local and regional councils, government organisations, international organisations, individuals, local and regional utilities, engineers and developers, water boards, manufacturers and more.
