The planned event for the irrigation sector in June, IF.2019 – Irrigation Futures, will now no longer take place.
IF.2019 was a new concept which was to combine a trade show and a series of professional development workshops for the irrigation sector. It has become clear in recent weeks that there is currently a lot of activity underway affecting those in the primary sector. We are also operating in a rapidly changing environment. The government has signalled significant changes will occur this year to environmental policy, particularly in relation to freshwater.
We are disappointed that IF.2019 will not be proceeding. However, it’s clear that our sector is currently focused on a range of other issues. In 2020 we will have more clarity about what the future regulatory and technology requirements for irrigators will be, which will enable us to deliver a fantastic conference to meet the sector’s needs at that time.
In autumn 2020 we will host our flagship event, our biennial Conference. Past Conferences have been highly successful events with our 2018 Conference and Expo attracting nearly 500 people.
We are very focused on making our 2020 Conference our best ever event. It will offer a range of insightful seminars with a large expo showcasing the latest in irrigation technology.
More details on Conference 2020 coming soon….
