New national conference for cleantech sector

The National Clean Technologies Conference & Exhibition (NCTCE) is a new, Australian-focused event that will encompass clean technology growth areas including energy, waste, water, the built environment and transport. The two-day conference will bring together key industry stakeholders to drive growth, innovation and investment in the sector.

The theme of ‘Creating Connections: Building Business’ presents a unique platform for producers, stakeholders and commercial end users of clean technology to come together. The program will focus on commercialisation, creating effective business clusters, the potential of the circular economy, innovation case studies and success stories, investment/funding channels, innovation and trends. It is hoped that the event will become the place for the cleantech industry to collaborate, be educated, be inspired, find opportunity and most importantly, do business.

Conference attendees will: hear from international and national leaders from the cleantech industry with real-world experience; discover new technology in waste, water, energy, transport and the built environment; explore how to create healthy, resilient and sustainable places and spaces for people to live and work; find out how regional Australia can take advantage of the rapidly growing cleantech sector; and learn about commercialising and deploying new cleantech innovation, and develop successful partnerships.
