Effluent Expo 2019 will be bigger, better

Written by 

Effluent Expo 2019 will build on last year’s event that drew 1500 farmers, says spokeswoman Amanda Hodgson.

“Feedback from exhibitors and farmers who attended in 2018 was really positive,” and most of last year’s exhibitors will be back, says Hodgson.

“Farmers appreciated seeing under one roof all the products and services available to them, and listening... to a wide range of industry experts in our seminars.
“Exhibitors were happy with the targeted audience they could engage with each day and almost every one of the 70 exhibitors who attended last year will be back again this year.”

The two-day Effluent Expo is timed to follow the intense cow mating season. Farmers may attend one or both days as they choose, depending on their workload.

The Effluent Expo showcases from conception to completion of a whole farm effluent system. 

That includes farm infrastructure design, accredited designers, irrigation specialists, storage or concrete infrastructure containment facilities, flood washing and recycling greenwater, solids separation systems (mechanical and non mechanical), cow housing, machinery and contractors for excavations and site preparation and for spreading effluent.

All sites indoors

According to organisers, over half of the pavilion is full with returning and new exhibitors for the 2019 NZ Effluent Expo.

This year’s Effluent Expo will have a new layout: all sites are indoors. There are two sections – exhibitor section and industrial site section.

An exhibitor function on the Tuesday night is included in the booking.

Seminars will run in the same format as last year “with a few tweaks here and there”.

Guest speakers will be centre stage and will be around 1pm on both days - Tuesday and Wednesday.



Mystery Creek Events Center, 125 Mystery Creek Road, Hamilton


November 19 and 20 (Tuesday and Wednesday), 8:30am to 3:30pm.
