Calling cleantech industry to NCTCE2020
The National Cleantech Conference & Exhibition (NCTCE) invites cleantech industry members to submit ideas for inclusion in the event’s 2020 program. As for this year's event on the Sunshine Coast in May, NCTCE2020 will provide a nationally focused platform for the cleantech industry to come together — this time in Brisbane on 3–4 August 2020.
Conference Program Director Tiffany Bower announced that NCTCE is looking for industry experts, researchers, innovators, start-ups, entrepreneurs, students, non-government and government organisations, and consortiums (public–private) to participate in the speaker program.
“We are seeking contributions from various disciplines, skills, knowledge bases and experience — if you’ve got a story to tell about cleantech in Australia or overseas, we want to hear about it!” Bower announced.
Arron Wood, Deputy Lord Mayor of the City of Melbourne and former Prime Minister’s Environmentalist of the Year, will return as emcee for the 2020 event, which will build on the 2019 program and bring a strong, knowledgeable voice to link the corporate/business world and the community/government sector.
With the theme of ‘Cleantech fast-tracking sustainable growth’, the two-day, multistream event will showcase innovations and case studies, with a focus on:
- innovation, research and entrepreneurialism;
- new business models and strategies;
- cleantech as a driver of economic development through the building of new industries, strengthening existing industries, job creation and exports;
- partnerships and collaboration;
- community building, social change and policy change.
“With the event covering seven different industry sectors, there will be limited spaces for each sector ensuring a diverse showcase of cleantech products and services,” said Nick Moore, Partnerships Manager for the event.
“The exhibition will also be open to trade visitors in 2020, so we expect a significant increase in the numbers through the show floor.”
NCTCE 2019 keynote speaker Dr Tim MacTaggart of Redflow Sustainable Energy Storage commented at the launch, “Cleantech has moved beyond being a ‘science experiment’; but to fully realise the transition to a clean economy, we need to build the human infrastructure to support technological innovation. This is where an event like NCTCE2020 comes in: it helps to spread ideas and create the connections which really drive the changes we need to happen,” he said.
The NCTCE is a multisector cleantech event that provides a national platform for collaboration, learning, networking and doing business between innovators, investors, producers and commercial end users of clean technology. The program covers all key cleantech sectors including water, energy, waste, mobility, agriculture, manufacturing and built environment.
