New water industry exhibition and conference

19 Nov 2013

To co-locate with All-Energy Australia, Australia's sustainability in business and Waste Expo in October 2014

Reed Exhibitions Australia and Brooks Events today announced a partnership with Inter-Water Events, organiser of Inter-Water Australia, a new national water exhibition and conference aimed at the users of water in industry, commerce and the urban environment, as well as the water supply industry.

This announcement follows the successful co-location in Melbourne in October 2013 of Reed’s All-Energy Australia Exhibition & Conference and Australian Sustainability Conference & Exhibition and Brooks’ Waste Expo, which attracted a combined audience of over 6000 industry professionals over an intensive two days.

Taking place on 15 & 16 October 2014 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, All-Energy Australia, Australian Sustainability, Waste Expo and Inter-Water Australia will occupy a combined ‘footprint’ of 16,500 sq m of hall space to form Australia’s most significant showcase for the clean energy, sustainability, waste and recycling and water industries.

All-Energy Australia Exhibition & Conference is Australia’s premier event for the clean and renewable energy sector.  Approaching its 6th annual edition in 2014, All-Energy Australia features a free-to-delegate, business-to-business, multi-stream conference and networking forum hosted alongside an impressive exhibition showcasing renewable energy, clean energy, power storage and energy efficiency.

Australian Sustainability Conference & Exhibition is a niche event in a developing arena, combining a high-level B2B conference with a tightly-focused exhibition to increase sustainability’s role in Australian business practice. It attracts business professionals seeking to integrate sustainable practices into their business model to reduce environmental impact and improve social awareness whilst also increasing economic performance.

Waste Expo presents a unique platform bringing together Australia's key solution providers in the waste and recycling sectors, who present the very latest technology, products and turnkey solutions. The need to manage waste and implement sustainable practice has become an integral part of business.  Waste Expo presents an opportunity to engage with professionals from sectors such as government, corporate, hospitality, transport and healthcare, for whom waste management, recycling and sustainable solutions are increasingly vital.

Inter-Water Australia is a premium national exhibition and conference designed to change the mindset about water by sharing sustainable water technologies, providing a forum showcasing all aspects of water technology, infrastructure and innovation, and delivering thought-leadership on key issues such as the impact of climate change and growing water scarcity on the use and supply of the world’s water. Focus areas of this innovative new event will be water in cities, water in industry (including mining, paper & packaging, brewing, manufacturing, and health care) and water in agriculture (including aquaculture, viticulture livestock rearing and food processing).

According to the three organisers, the addition of Inter-Water Australia is the final ‘piece in the jigsaw’ of a combined event that delivers a compelling and powerful value proposition to national and international suppliers, buyers and end-users from all sectors of the clean energy, sustainability, waste and recycling and water sectors.

Anthony Reed, Exhibition Director at Reed Exhibitions Australia, says that “the efficient use of water and energy, the integration of sustainable business practices and effective waste management are all critical challenges and opportunities for Australian industry.  Reed Exhibitions is therefore delighted to be able to meet the extended needs of All-Energy Australia and Australian Sustainability exhibitors and visitors by delivering them additional , ‘on the spot’ opportunities to do business with professionals from the waste and water industries through these strategic co-locations’.

Louise Brooks, Events Director at Waste Expo, adds that “post-show feedback from exhibitors and visitors at this year’s inaugural edition of Waste Expo overwhelmingly endorsed the benefits of co-location with All-Energy Australia and Australian Sustainability.  There’s no doubt that the exciting addition of Inter-Water Australia will further enhance the overall value proposition to key visitor groups such as facilities, operations, environmental, plant and project managers, particularly those travelling from interstate or overseas.”

According to Andy Ballagh, Director of Inter-Water Events, “our extensive research had established the need for a high-quality water industry exhibition and conference in Australia and identified synergies with the clean energy, sustainability and waste sectors.  It was therefore a logical step to partner with Reed Exhibitions and Brooks Events to co-locate Inter-Water with All-Energy Australia, Australian Sustainability and Waste Expo.  The majority of major businesses serving the water sector are based in Melbourne and the Victorian Government has a focus on establishing the State as a world leader in integrated water cycle management.  These facts alone mean that Inter-Water Australia will be ideally located at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre alongside three other major events in related environmental sectors.”  

With Reed Exhibitions and Brooks Events reporting very high satisfaction and ROI from exhibitors at this year’s editions of All-Energy Australia, Australian Sustainability and Waste Expo, both organisers are expecting significant growth of their events in 2014, especially with the extra business opportunities provided via the Inter-Water Australia co-location.

“I would encourage companies considering participation at All-Energy Australia, Australian Sustainability, Waste Expo or Inter-Water Australia in 2014 to contact the relevant organiser now to discuss stand options.  With space bookings for 2014 already flowing in and with finite hall space available at MCEC, both Reed Exhibitions and our fellow organisers are expecting a sell-out across the four events.  We urge suppliers not to miss what will be an unprecedented opportunity to grow your market share across four industry sectors over two intensive days of face-to-face customer engagement.” Reed concluded.
