Melbourne User Event Success for 2019

Brisbane, Australia  |  10th December 2019

That’s a wrap! The 2019 Innovyze ‘Success Through Solutions’ Melbourne User Event was hosted this year at a new location, Freshwater Place in Southbank, Melbourne on Thursday 14th & Friday, 15th November.

After multiple years at the same venue, we decided to change venues opting for city & river views with spacious networking areas for our guests.

As always, our event was held over 2 days, covering Asset Management & Water Distribution on Day 1 with presentations from Ashley Vanderpol presenting on behalf of Alana Duncker from Stantec, Michael Tolhurst from Coliban Water, Nicholas Longden from Urban Water Solutions, Asoka Jayaratne from Yarra Valley Water, co-presenting with Alex Tarulli from GHD, Magnolia Garcia from Innovyze. We were lucky enough to have some international Innovyze guest presenters such as Product Managers, Luca Serena and Tony Andrews from our UK region join us as well as CEO, Colby Manwaring who is based in Portland, USA.

Day 2 reflected Sewer Modelling and Storm & Flood. We decided to switch up the day, starting altogether with presentations by Daniel Burton from Bureau of Meteorology, Sophia Buchanan and Patrick Bonk from Innovyze. After lunch we split into 2 sessions – Room 1 was talking Sewer, with presentations by Mahinda Jayasooriya from Central Highlands Water, Bradley Nissley from Urban Water Solutions and Colby Manwaring from Innovyze took the stage again. Room 2 was Storm & Flood presentations by Celine Marchenay from Water Tech, Andrew Allan from Manningham Council and again, another double presentation from Tony Andrews, Innovyze. A short Afternoon Tea break and we were back together in the one session with Orlando Guzman closing the day with ICM Tips & Tricks – which is always a crowd favourite.

All in all, another successful event full of friendly and new faces, plenty of networking conversations and learning.

In case you missed the event, you can now have full access to the presentations from our guests and Innovyze Team. Please note, we ask our presenters for distribution approval for after the event. If you don’t see a particular presentation, it has not been released for public viewing at this stage.  

Once again, we thank you for your ongoing support. Next up, #BUE20 coming in June 2020.
