Floodex Irrigex Show - Peterborough Arena

31 January 2019

2019 will see an entirely new event which will benefit both trade shows and conferences, with a big overlap in interest.

IRRIGEX, the event for the UK irrigation industry will run alongside FLOODEX.

The event is at Peterborough Arena, East of England Showground on 27th & 28th February. 70% of flooding is caused by surface water, so this event is relevant to people both in urban areas, as well as rural.

The new laws coming in, developers and owners of commercial and residential properties, need to be aware of their responsibilities, as well as the best way to mitigate flooding from surface water run-off.



The Association of SuDS Authorities is a newly form body, specifically for professionals working with Local Authorities.

The Association will be officially launched at FLOODEX and the first annual conference will help to mark this occasion, attracting a very important audience.


As there is a crossover of interest in the management of water, we have teamed up the UKIA, who have moved their annual conference to form part of the overall event.

This will give suppliers and end users, interested in irrigation, a platform where they can meet face to face and come away much better informed and equipped to deal with their respective issues.

The events are heavily supported and the only ones in the UK run in partnership with the Association of Drainage Authorities, Association of SuDS Authorities and the UK Irrigation Association.

The presentation programme includes speakers from Defra, Environment Agency, National Infrastructure Commission, CIWEM and many others; see the website for full list of exhibitors and speakers.

WHY SHOULD YOU come along?

You’ll be able to engage with experts and consultants, harvesting advice on what you could and should be doing. Network with your peers, find out what their plans are and share ideas.

There’s a lovely quote attributed to George Bernard Shaw: ‘If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples, we still each have one apple.

But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange ideas, we each have two ideas.’

Talk to the people and organizations on the exhibition stands, who can help you deliver your planned solutions with the latest equipment, technology, services and knowledge.

You’ll be able to talk to a wide range of suppliers and expert advisers that would normally take you months to get around; trade shows are the most productive use of your time.

Especially if you are thinking of changing or looking for a new supplier, services or quick advice.

It’s one or two days out of your year that could continue to pay dividends for months and even years to come, whilst making you more effective, efficient and possibly even save you money.

Entry includes FREE parking and free access to all the CPD accredited seminars. Just visit and register for free entry.

Wednesday 27th February 2019- 9am – 5pm
Thursday 28th February 2019 – 9am – 4pm
