2020 Event Overview 

Communication is vital and the key to change!

The impetus for fast tracking sustainable growth, and the role of Cleantech in instigating that growth, was no more apparent than it was in 2020. With Australia reeling from prolonged drought, the bushfire crisis and a global pandemic, VCTCE keynote speaker Creel Price’s pronouncement that there was “no better time for cleantech than right now” was a timely reminder of the opportunity the cleantech industry has as an instigator of innovation, sustainable economic development, creative collaborations and inclusive prosperity.

“We have the solutions, now we need to work out how to open minds to create change.”  

John O’Brien, Partner, Financial Advisory, Deloitte

A virtual event like no other

Reimagining the National Cleantech Conference & Exhibition online was no mean feat! However, we were determined to deliver a virtual event like no other, with all of the interaction, discussion and connection expected from a live event.  Supported by our event partner, Advance Queensland, the result was a comprehensive speaker and exhibition program attended by over 200 national and international delegates delivered across three half days. And of course, the beauty of virtual is the conversation continues with over 300 downloads of the sessions to date.

"Best virtual conference I've attended this year!" 

“Congratulations on your commitment to Cleantech as the industry of the now and future."

"The event itself was excellent and great to see the Government taking it seriously and supporting this initiative. Program was excellent and opportunities were there.” 

“The conference provides a unique forum for multi-disciplinary discussion.”  

“The organisers were well equipped to undertake the virtual conference smoothly. The panel sessions were very informative.” 

“There was a great mix of presenters. The sessions were not too long, which can be a problem with virtual conferences. The recordings were available quickly, and allowed for catching up on the concurrent streams. ”

“Well done for assembling a crucial program during this year!!!”
