ADA Conference


Sharing knowledge

The Conference is ADA’s largest annual event with over 200 delegates attending from across the UK’s flood and water level management organisations that are members of ADA. It informs our members of ADA’s activities and offers high-level presentations from leading political and industry speakers. Delegates are able to discuss topical flood and water level management issues during a structured discussion forum.

The event promotes ADA’s vision for flood risk management authorities working in partnership together, delivering effective services through good governance and strategic planning. It is an annual opportunity for members, officers, exhibitors and sponsors to network, share good practice and gain solutions to local issues from a platform which brings flood and water level management to the heart of government.
