The primary consideration for any event is delegate safety and with this issue ‘top of mind’ the Board of Irrigation Australia have announced that the 24th International Congress & 73rd IEC meeting and Irrigation Australia Conference & Exhibition will be further postponed to 30th May – 6th June 2022 and will be held in Adelaide, South Australia. Some key reasons for this change are:
ICID has been organizing its flagship triennial event International Congress on Irrigation and Drainage since 1951 and yet it has never been held in the southern hemisphere. Irrigation Australia welcomes the opportunity to host this significant international irrigation event in 2022.
The ICID triennial Congresses are organised to discuss and evaluate the upcoming and dynamic changes within the water sector in the entire world. In the face of global warming, changing climatic conditions, exploding population, increasing demand, and ever-changing technological advancements, ICID Congresses aims to deliberate and develop solutions for the concurrent challenges in this sector. Considering the multi-disciplinary nature of issues, the congress addresses the bigger concerns faced by the global population in terms of water-food security, water-saving and the availability of water for everyone.
Irrigation Australia will contact all exhibitors who had booked space for the now postponed event in Sydney in July 2021 and will be offered some exciting incentives to transfer their arrangements to Adelaide nine months later.
