The 23rd North West Aquatics Seminar was recently held in Port Hedland and was attended by 40 delegates from across the North West region.

The first time back in Port Hedland since 2006 it was great to be able to host the annual seminar in such a magnificent facility of the Wanangkura Stadium.

The 2 day event first kicked off with Royal Life Saving Society hosting a Water Safety Industry Forum to invite key stakeholders from around the Pilbara region to get together to discuss the needs of the region and to better understand the issues that surround water safety in the Pilbara Region.

Day 1

This year’s conference was once again very well supported by industry with over 245 delegates registering for the event that included 36 Stands in the Exhibition Area. There was plenty of colour, noise and excitement on Monday morning registration with delegates from all over the state flying in for the two days of presentations and trade exhibition. Once the event started it had a great energy and vibe as people with common interest catch up to discuss the past season as well as what is on the horizon for the next.
