Clean­tech ef­fect on dis­play

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE WHAT’S ON -

THE only in­ter-re­gional Clean­tech con­fer­ence and trade show of its kind in Aus­tralia, the Clean­tech Ef­fect, will re­turn to the Lake Kawana Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 23.

The Clean­tech Ef­fect 2017 prom­ises to chal­lenge the think­ing of at­ten­dees and ex­hibitors alike by delv­ing into the world of sus­tain­able de­sign and ex­plor­ing how we can im­prove our strate­gies to achieve sus­tain­able built en­vi­ron­ment out­comes.

Global thought leader and fu­tur­ist Dr Keith Suter will MC this year’s event, which will in­clude a key­note pre­sen­ta­tion by in­spir­ing multi award-win­ning ar­chi­tect, busi­ness­man and host of Grand De­signs Aus­tralia, Peter Mad­di­son.

One of the most recog­nis­able ar­chi­tects in Aus­tralia, Mr Mad­di­son was de­lighted to be in­vited to the Sun­shine Coast to share his passion, ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence on what good de­sign can achieve.

Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Port­fo­lio coun­cil­lor Stephen Robin­son said the con­fer­ence and show­case aimed to build on its suc­cess­ful for­mula of con­nect­ing busi­ness lead­ers with in­no­va­tors.

“This year we’re not only show­cas­ing the lat­est tech­nolo­gies, hear­ing in­spir­ing sto­ries and dis­cov­er­ing ex­cit­ing new busi­nesses, we’re also chal­leng­ing our think­ing about the built en­vi­ron­ment and ex­plor­ing how to create com­mu­ni­ties that are en­vi­ron­men­tally and eco­nom­i­cally sus­tain­able,” Cr Robin­son said.

The Clean­tech Ef­fect is now wel­com­ing regis­tra­tion from Clean­tech in­dus­try in­no­va­tors.

Ex­hibitor, spon­sor and del­e­gate in­quiries can be made by email­ing clean­tech­ef­fect@sun­shine coast.qld.gov.au or visit sun­shinecoast.qld.gov.au/ clean­tech for more in­for­ma­tion.
