Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

MORE than 70 key­note and in­dus­try speak­ers, 50 ex­hibitors and 250 del­e­gates from across Aus­tralia will de­scend on the Sun­shine Coast next May for the Na­tional Clean Tech­nolo­gies Con­fer­ence and Ex­hi­bi­tion.

The three day con­fer­ence will be held at The Events Cen­tre, Caloun­dra, and will fur­ther po­si­tion the Sun­shine Coast as Aus­tralia’s clean­tech in­dus­try cap­i­tal.

The Clean Tech­nolo­gies Con­fer­ence will also play an im­por­tant role in bring­ing key in­dus­try stake­hold­ers to­gether, to drive growth, in­no­va­tion and in­vest­ment in the re­gion.

Sun­shine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson said the Coast was lead­ing the way na­tion­ally when it came to clean tech­nol­ogy.

“The Sun­shine Coast aims to be Aus­tralia’s most sus­tain­able re­gion – healthy, smart, creative,” Cr Jamieson said.

“We al­ready have one of the high­est con­cen­tra­tions of clean tech­nol­ogy busi­nesses in Aus­tralia and Sun­shine Coast Coun­cil is driv­ing sus­tain­abil­ity as a point of dif­fer­ence within our re­gion.

“Just this month, the Sun­shine Coast was recog­nised in the Top 7 In­tel­li­gent Com­mu­ni­ties of 2019.”

Con­fer­ence di­rec­tor Peta Moore, of Nec­tar Creative Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, said the con­fer­ence and ex­hi­bi­tion would en­com­pass all clean tech­nol­ogy growth ar­eas in­clud­ing en­ergy, waste, wa­ter, built en­vi­ron­ment and trans­port, and pro­vide a fo­rum for the Aus­tralian clean­tech com­mu­nity to fo­cus on “na­tional” is­sues and lat­est de­vel­op­ments, as well as the op­por­tu­nity to come to­gether to net­work, learn and do busi­ness to­gether.
