Victorian Government announces Enviro 06 partnership
The Victorian government has announced its partnership in the Enviro 06 Convention & Exhibition, which will be held in Melbourne from 7-10 May next year.
Premier Steve Bracks described the Enviro Convention & Exhibition as "the most significant environment industry event of its kind in the southern hemisphere," adding, "We recognise the importance of working with other governments and industry groups to drive sustainable environmental outcomes."
The Victorian government has joined the two environment industry associations behind the Enviro Convention & Exhibition, the Australian Water Association (AWA) and the Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA), to present Enviro 06. The event will coincide with the first Mayors' Asia-Pacific Environmental Summit to be held in Australia.
Enviro 06 chair Paul Howlett said the mayors' summit would give Australian companies an opportunity to leverage into the environmental goods and services market in the Asia-Pacific region.
"The summit is an initiative designed to assist the mayors of major Asia-Pacific cities to move their cities onto a more sustainable footing," Mr Howlett said.
Enviro 06 is expected to attract 6000 people and will comprise a three-day, 24-stream conference program plus a major trade exhibition.
The organisers are offering three other partnership opportunities of $150,000 each. Mr Howlett said that in due course there will be some smaller sponsorship opportunities available for organisations wishing to link their products or services with individual conference sessions or streams. However, he said, "Only the Enviro 06 partners will achieve overall branding and full partnership status with the associations and the Victorian government."
