Tasmania has won the bid to host Asian Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (AWTEC) 2020.

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

The conference is expected to attract more than 350 delegates and generate $1 million for the Tasmanian economy, according to Business Events Tasmania.

The Asian Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (AWTEC) has been established as the regional conference affiliated with the European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) series.

The events facilitate the transnational and regional sharing of knowledge and understanding from research of wave and tidal renewable energy systems, their interactions with the environment and the identification of barriers to establishing the marine renewable energy industry.
