Irrigation New Zealand

Media Statement – for immediate release

17 March 2020


Our thoughts go out to those affected by the rapid intensification of the COVID-19 situation. As an organisation the health and welfare of our staff, members and those who support us is very important. We have been monitoring the situation closely and have made the following changes.

IRRIGATIONNZ ‘WATER FOR LIFE’ 2020 CONFERENCE POSTPONED 

It is with great disappointment that we have made the decision to postpone our 2020 Water for Life Conference.

Our Conference was planned to be held from the 7-9 April in Christchurch.

We have done this in response to the Government which has asked for events of over 500 people to be cancelled.

The biennial IrrigationNZ conference attracts over 500 attendees so meets this criteria.

We will send detailed information to exhibitors, delegates and speakers shortly. We will aim to postpone the event to a later appropriate date. Details will be released once there is a clearer picture of options. We will be posting updates to our website which can be seen here.

At this stage health and safety is our main priority.

We will send detailed information to exhibitors, delegates and speakers shortly.
