Conference win for Tasmania

Conference win for Tasmania

Hobart has won the bid for the Asian Wave and Tidal Energy Conference Series (AWTEC) 2020, which is expected to attract more than 350 delegates and generate AUD$1 million for the Tasmanian economy.

Business Events Tasmania partnered with Tasmanian Business Event Ambassador Professor Neil Bose, principal of the Australian Maritime College (AMC) and Associate Professor Irene Penesis, National Centre for Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics to collaboratively bid to bring the event to Tasmania.

CEO of Business Events Tasmania Stuart Nettlefold says the win demonstrates Tasmania’s capability to host international conferences.

‘Events such as this put Tasmania on the global stage and showcase Tasmania’s leadership in the marine renewable energy industry sector and our world leading research institutes and universities,’ he says.
