Join the NCTCE 2020 Agenda


The National Cleantech Conference & Exhibition is Australia’s ONLY multi-sector Cleantech event. It provides a national platform for collaboration, learning, networking and doing business between innovators, investors, producers and commercial end-users of clean technology. The program covers all sectors including water, energy, waste, transport, agriculture, manufacturing and built environment.

Do you have a new solution to announce, project success to feature or company case study to share with the Australian Cleantech Industry community?
We are seeking contributions from various disciplines, skills, knowledge bases and experience - if you’ve got a story to tell about Cleantech in Australia or overseas - we want to hear about it!


Who can participate?

NCTCE is looking for industry experts, researchers, innovators, start-ups, entrepreneurs, students, non-government and government organisations, consortiums (public-private) to participate in our speaker program. Individuals and organisations are invited to submit an abstract to deliver an oral presentation, panel presentation or workshop which addresses the conference theme and topics.

The 2020 program will include sessions relating to all of the following sectors:

Call for Speaker Themes

The conference program was the highlight of the 2019 event for both delegates and exhibitors. Arron Wood, Deputy Lord Mayor of the City of Melbourne and former Prime Minister’s Environmentalist of the Year will return as MC again in 2020, building on the 2019 program and bringing a strong, knowledgeable voice to provide the link between the corporate/business world and community/government sector. Highlighting the best innovations and solution implementation case studies locally, nationally and internationally the two day, multi-stream event will relate back to the conference theme of Cleantech fast-tracking sustainable growth through:

  • Innovation, research and entrepreneurialism
  • New business models and strategies
  • Cleantech as a driver of economic development through the building of new industries, strengthening existing industries, job creation and exports
  • Partnerships and collaboration
  • Community building, social change and policy change


Abstracts are sought from a diverse range of perspectives and industry sectors (see below) and should relate to the conference theme Cleantech: Fast tracking sustainable growth which will focus on the Cleantech industry as an instigator of innovation, economic development, creative collaborations and inclusive prosperity. We are seeking submissions which address the application of clean technology and demonstrate business outcomes.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the NCTCE Advisory Committee. The selection process will be focussed on providing a program that offers a varied and detailed information across all areas of the industry. Authors will be notified by email of the outcome of their submission.
